How are the policies reviewed? 

The policies were compared against a framework composed of 45 reference statements. These reference statements looked at: 

  • The performance of each policy against its own objectives; 
  • The extent to which each policy reduced plastic pollution regardless of the stated purpose of the policy; and
  • The factors contributing to policy effectiveness.
