Addressing marine plastics: A systemic approach. Stocktaking Report.
This report takes stock of the extent of knowledge on plastics in the marine environment. It provides a high-level summary of the available literature on the key sources and locations of these plastics, along with an analysis of the problem products and polymers making up marine plastics and micro-plastics. It also looks at what is currently being done to address the problem of marine plastics and summarises existing policy responses in order to lay the groundwork for future action.
Mapping of global plastics value chain and plastics losses to the environment. With a particular focus on marine environment.
This report provides a comprehensive global mapping of plastic losses to the environment throughout the plastic value chain using 2015 as the reference year. This mapping covers plastic production and processing, use of plastics or plastic containing products, and disposal of the products. It differentiates 23 types of plastics and 13 plastic applications, including division between macro- and micro-plastics (including microbeads and microfibers).
