Nairobi, Kenya –  In response to an analysis conducted by Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL) and supported by Greenpeace that revealed that 143 fossil fuel and chemical industry lobbyists have gained access to the third session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC-3) to negotiate for a Global plastics Treaty, Graham Forbes, Greenpeace Head of Delegation to the Global Plastics Treaty negotiations and Global Campaign Lead for Greenpeace USA, said: 

“The fossil fuel and petrochemical industries are heavily resisting people- and planet-saving measures in the Global Plastics Treaty. Their growing presence in the negotiations is very telling. A strong and ambitious agreement that will cut plastic production by at least 75% by 2040 means they will need to find another way to satisfy shareholders. We urge UN member states to listen to the millions of people around the world who want an end to plastic pollution, rather than the fossil fuel lobby.”
