2020 One Planet Network Executive Meeting

June 17, 2020

2020 One Planet Network Executive Meeting

The 2020 One Planet Executive Meeting took place virtually from May 18th - 20th, bringing together more than 100 participants in order to review progress on the implementation of the ‘One Planet for One Planet’ strategy and advance on requests made to the One Planet network by the 4th UN Environment Assembly.

Each day focused on a key strategic priority for the network: 1) Progress and implications of the UN Decade of Action, and particularly in the context of COVID-19; 2) Strengthening the science-policy-action interface on SCP; and 3) addressing plastic pollution across the network.

Responding to UNEA: Focus on plastics

This month dives deeper into the progress being made on the One Planet network wide Plastics Initiative, as discussed at this years Executive Meeting.

Participants engaged with one another around the use stage of the plastic value chain, which has been identified as a hotspot, both in terms of procurement practices and behaviour change.

The network has decided to target both procurement practices and behaviour change through the development of several products: 1) Mapping plastic labels and claims; 2) Providing guidance on bidding criteria and contract conditions on plastic packaging, and; 3) Mapping communication campaigns on plastic. These products are being applied across the food and tourism sectors.
