A group of like-minded countries has taken the initiative to form a coalition of ambitious countries following the adoption of resolution 5/14 “End Plastic Pollution: Towards an International Legally Binding Instrument” by the UN Environment Assembly in March 2022. The High Ambition Coalition is Co-Chaired by Norway and Rwanda as announced during UNEA5.2.

The High Ambition Coalition to End Plastic Pollution is committed to develop an ambitious international legally binding instrument based on a comprehensive and circular approach that ensures urgent action and effective interventions along the full lifecycle of plastics.

Our common ambition is to end plastic pollution by 2040. At the outset of the plastic treaty negotiations, we have outlined three strategic goals and seven key deliverables for success in this regard.
