On 25 September, the European Commission and UN Environment are jointly convening an event at the UN Headquarters in New York with the objective of inspiring new commitments to reduce plastic waste.

The event will look at concrete government actions and industry partnerships that make the plastics system more circular.

Global leaders will have the opportunity to showcase their national initiatives, learn from each other, commit to fight together against plastic pollution and join in a 'race to the top'. One of the main objectives of the event is to invite governments around the world to join a Global Plastics Platform, to be managed by UN Environment.

The event targets a high-level audience, including Heads of State or Government, decision makers from governments and the private sector as well as financial institutions and civil society.
