Australia is on a plastics mission. It is a significant challenge in which each of us – government, industry and the community – must play a part.

In March 2020, we were privileged to convene Australia’s first ever National Plastics Summit. The summit was the first step in our plastics mission and brought together over 200 leaders and experts from government, industry and community sectors to identify and showcase new ideas and solutions. The National Plastics Summit highlighted that plastic waste is an issue that Australians care about deeply – governments are engaged, industry is engaged and the community is engaged.

This National Plastics Plan puts into action many of the excellent ideas raised at the Summit.
