Convened by
The Coalition brings together
businesses and financial
institutions committed to
supporting the development
of an ambitious, effective
and legally binding UN treaty
to end plastic pollution. The
coalition is convened by the
Ellen MacArthur Foundation
and WWF, in collaboration
with aligned businesses and
supported by strategic NGO
partners.
Our vision is a circular economy
in which plastic never becomes
waste or pollution, and the value
of products and materials is
retained in the economy.
1. REDUCTION of plastic production and use
through a circular economy approach
2. CIRCULATION of all plastic items that
cannot be eliminated
3. PREVENTION and REMEDIATION of
remaining, hard-to-abate micro- and
macro-plastic leakage into the environment
Global outcomes
necessary to achieve our vision
Key elements that we support in the treaty
The treaty must define a comprehensive and coordinated set of upstream and downstream
policy measures that help achieve our desired global outcomes, including:
● A timeline for the phasing-out of problematic plastics that hinder progress towards a circular
economy, pose critical health risks, or have a high risk of ending up in nature
● Harmonised regulatory and financial incentives to scale circular economy solutions by
stimulating the necessary innovation, investment and consumer choices
● Mechanisms to ensure dedicated, ongoing and sufficient funding for the after-use
collection and treatment of plastics, for example through well-designed mandatory Extended
Producer Responsibility schemes
● Provisions to protect and respect the livelihoods, health, labour and human rights of all
people involved in the value chain, for example through the recognition of and engagement with
workers in informal and cooperative settings as important stakeholders to achieve a safe and
socially-just circular economy
Support for implementation is key
The treaty must include instruments to support implementation and monitoring of progress,
including by:
● Supporting policy impact assessment, for example through the establishment of a scientific
advisory body, to better understand environmental, social, and economic impacts over the whole life
cycle of plastics
● Strengthening accountability of governments and businesses, for example through globally
harmonised disclosure obligations and reporting standards
● Improving transparency on plastic flows through harmonised monitoring, to track progress
towards the implementation of circular economy solutions, for example using common rules on data
and information sharing across the value chain
● Ensuring countries’ effective participation through a dedicated financial mechanism and
capacity building to develop and implement effective national legislation and action
Global rules are important for businesses.
We cannot rely on national action plans alone.
Examples for policy areas where global rules
would be particularly beneficial include:
● Elimination of problematic plastics
● Reuse and refill solutions
● Product design requirements
● Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)
and Deposit Return Schemes (DRS)
● Recycling definitions and standards
