8 million tonnes of plastic waste leak into the ocean each year. By 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans—if we do not take urgent, collective action.
By bringing together decision-makers across every sector and region, we will fast-track the transition to a circular plastics economy in which plastics are sustainably redesigned, recovered and reused.
Together, we can conserve marine biodiversity, protect the wellbeing of women and vulnerable communities, catalyze economic growth, and achieve a more sustainable and inclusive world.
What we do
The Global Plastic Action Partnership (GPAP) is a public-private collaboration platform to help translate political and corporate commitment to address plastic pollution into concrete action plans.
The partnership is founded and supported by
