Canada to use G7 presidency to push environmental ‘zero plastics waste charter’

Canada will use its presidency of the G7, taking place in Quebec in June 2018, to persuade the world's richest, most industrialized countries to adopt ambitious goals for plastic recycling and waste reduction.

At the World Ocean Summit 2018 on March 7th in Cancun, Mexico, Canadian Minister of Environment and Climate Change Catherine McKenna said that “a zero-plastics-waste charter” was in strong consideration and could go even further than the European Union's plan to recycle at least half of its plastic packaging by 2030.
