The Zero Draft of the Global Plastics Treaty came out in September in advance of the third intergovernmental negotiating committee (INC-3) to be held in Nairobi, Kenya, in November 2023. In addition to numerous reactions on social media to the Zero Draft, a flurry of statements and perspective pieces have appeared since its release. We’ve collated some of the perspectives and statements on the Zero Draft from various stakeholder groups.

The spread of responses to the Zero Draft understandably varied, which reflects the range of stakeholders involved in the negotiation process. The Zero Draft is a menu of options at this stage that will be negotiated and elaborated on at INC-3 in Nairobi and the INCs that follow. Below we signpost some of the comments and analyses on the Zero Draft from a range of NGOs, private sector bodies, convening bodies, industry representatives, and research institutions.
