1st G-20 Report on Plans for Marine Plastic Waste Released

1st G-20 Report on Plans for Marine Plastic Waste Released

   Tokyo, Oct. 11 (Jiji Press)--The Japanese government released Friday the first report drawn up by the Group of 20 economies on action plans by member countries for better management and disposal of plastic waste in a bid to reduce marine plastic pollution.
   The report confirmed a policy of establishing a method for accurately calculating the plastic waste released by each country, led by Japan, the United States and the European Union.
   The report was based on the results of a working-level meeting the G-20 major advanced and emerging economies that was held in Tokyo for three days through Thursday.
   The meeting marked the effective start of an international framework on the fight against marine plastic waste that was worked out at a meeting of the G-20 energy and environmental ministers in the town of Karuizawa in Nagano Prefecture, central Japan, in June.
   The report included action plans for reducing marine plastic waste by 15 of the G-20 members and four countries outside the G-20 club.
