Pew’s preventing ocean plastics project aims to provide the evidence base for concerted global action to reduce the flow of plastic into the ocean. The project focuses on the dissemination of research and tools that help to evaluate and identify the economically and politically viable steps needed to catalyze more effective and efficient global efforts and investments to reduce the flow of plastics entering the world’s oceans. Specifically, the project aims to help develop policies to address in-country plastic use and waste, unintentional microplastics, and plastics trade as well as increased accountability of public and private actions.
The officer, preventing ocean plastics assists in developing and implementing strategies and activities to advance the EU microplastic legislation and policies to reduce the trade in problematic plastics. This includes extensive advocacy and policy work and coordination with government officials, NGOs, scientists, and the business community to advance EU policy actions toward reducing microplastics emissions and reducing trade in problematic plastics at the World Trade Organization.
