At the recent G7 Summit held in Charlevoix, QC, the leaders of the G7 recognized the urgency of the threat of ocean plastic waste and marine litter to ecosystems and the lost value of plastics in the waste stream, and committed to moving towards a more resource efficient and sustainable management of plastics. This has raised the profile of plastic waste reduction across the globe, as reflected by the speakers in this session.
