About this talk

This webinar will explore regulatory developments necessary to support banks in integrating and mitigating plastic-related risks and impacts in their business activities. Following the adoption in 2022 of a historic resolution to forge an international legally binding agreement to end plastic pollution, negotiations are currently ongoing and expected to lead to the signing of the treaty in 2024. Following an analysis of the current landscape, the webinar will showcase a panel discussion featuring experts from regulatory authorities and the banking industry. Co-organized with Ecofact, this event is the fourth edition of a series of webinars addressing key thematic issues in emerging sustainable finance regulation.

United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is a partnership between United Nations Environment and the global financial sector created in the wake of the 1992 Earth Summit with a mission to promote sustainable finance. More than 240 financial institutions, including banks, insurers, and investors, work with UN Environment to understand today’s environmental, social and governance challenges, why they matter to finance, and how to actively participate in addressing them. UNEP FI’s work also includes a strong focus on policy – by facilitating country-level dialogues between finance practitioners, supervisors, regulators and policy-makers, and, at the international level, by promoting financial sector involvement in processes such as the global climate negotiations.
