Global Plastics Outlook, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), 21 June 2022

Global plastics production has grown relentlessly in recent decades. Plastics help us preserve food, insulate constructions, use electronics and make vehicles more fuel-efficient, among other things. Yet, the sheer magnitude of plastics consumption in our societies results in a high production-related carbon footprint, high volumes of waste, persistent pollution and harm to wildlife and the ecosystem.

In recent years, growing awareness of ubiquitous plastic pollution has steered public opinion and paved the way for stronger policy intervention on this front. The OECD Global Plastics Outlook reports seek to inform and support these efforts. More information can be found here. 

ISF team will participate in the OECD Green Talks and full report launch webinar happening on 21 July 2022.
