Ocean Plastics Charter


Ocean Plastics Charter


In the last century, plastics have played an important role in our economy and day-to-day lives. However, the everyday use of plastics including the production, managing and its disposal has created a significant threat our environment. Its large impact has also represented a significant loss of resources and energy.

Our Prime Minister, the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, along with the leaders of France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom and the European Union committed to moving along a path involving a more resource-efficient and sustainable approach to the management of plastic. The action towards a resource-efficient lifecycle management approach to plastic in the economy will be done by:

  1.     Sustainable design, production and after-use markets
  2.     Collection, management and other systems and infrastructure
  3.     Sustainable lifestyles and education
  4.     Research, innovation and new technologies
  5.     Coastal and shoreline action
