USCIB-ACC Briefing: Global Plastics Pollution Treaty

June 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

USCIB and ACC will co-host a hybrid meeting on Thursday, June 23, from 12:00-1:00pm Eastern, to discuss the negotiation of a global plastics treaty and debrief from the recent UNEA meeting Open Ended Working Group meeting in Dakar, Senegal.

This meeting will serve to not only report on outcomes from Dakar, but also to look ahead to the first round of negotiations set to take place this fall at INC1 – How best for business to engage in the stakeholder process, and how to ensure input and coordination across industries and throughout the plastics lifecycle. There will also be updates on recent discussions in other multilateral forums in which plastics pollution has been discussed, and this meeting will combine with the ongoing Business for Plastic Pollution Action group calls.

To attend, please RSVP to Chris Olsen (colsen@uscib.org) by Wednesday, June 22 . For those able to attend in person, the meeting will take place at ACC’s offices in Washington, D.C. (700 2nd St NE, Washington, DC 20002) and you will receive a form to complete in advance of the meeting to comply with building COVID protocols for filling out prior to attending. If you cannot join in person, we would encourage you to still RSVP to join virtually and will share the videoconference meeting link.
