Single-use plastic bags and their alternatives

The meta-analysis study on single-use plastic bag developed with IVL is nearly finalised after stakeholder consultation and is now from our website in a pre-publication draft. A series of other studies on single-use plastic products will be published throughout the year including on take-away food packaging as well as beverage bottles. A high-level summary report for policy makers integrating the findings in previous studies will be published in October 2020 as an information document to the Fifth UN Environment Assembly (UNEA5).

Addressing Marine Plastics: A systemic Approach – Recommendations for Actions

Building on two previous reports (Addressing Marine Plastics: A Systemic Approach – Stocktaking Report and Mapping of Global Plastics Value Chain and Plastics Losses to the Environment: With a Particular Focus on Marine Environment) developed under the GEF project ‘Addressing Marine Plastics - A Systemic Approach’, the latest report ‘Addressing Marine Plastics: A Systemic Approach – Recommendations for Actions’ identifies gaps to address marine plastics at each value chain stage, and recommends actions to be taken by different stakeholders to achieve a circular economy for plastics at the global level. The report also recommends actions in priority sectors where plastic leakage is substantial and impacts on the environment are high.
