Let’s work together to end plastic pollution

We support a global plastics pollution agreement that helps scale action, accelerates plastics circularity, and unlocks the value of plastic waste.

Coming together for INC-4

The Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee’s fourth meeting (INC-4) is taking place in Ottawa, Canada, April 23-29, 2024. The aim – an international legally binding instrument (ILBI) on plastic pollution – is the world’s chance to sufficiently incentivize circularity and enhance waste management infrastructure.

“Speaking for Dow and the broader industry, we’re heavily engaged in trying to make sure that we do reach a global treaty that can be legally binding and to do that, we want as many countries as possible to be party to that. That means a change in the way we do things. That’s transformational.” 
Jim Fitterling, Chair and CEO, Dow
