INC-2 Plastic Pollution Treaty

As part of the triple planetary crisis, pollution is one of the major drivers of biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation, and plastic pollution is detrimental to our terrestrial, freshwater and marine biodiversity and ecosystems, upon which livelihoods and economies depend.

Delegates to INC-2 will discuss “Potential options for elements towards an international legally binding instrument”, including options for objectives, for substantive obligations, means of implementation and implementation measures. 

This brief offers IUCN's views for the second session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee for the development of an international legally binding instrument on plastic pollution, including in the marine environment (INC-2), that will take place from 29 May – 2 June 2023, Paris, France
