  • Indonesia generates around 6.8 million tonnes of plastic waste per year, but much of it is not disposed of properly. But by 2040 it hopes to achieve zero plastic pollution through shifting to a circular economy. The informal waste sector gathers up around 1 million tonnes of plastic waste, most of which is recycled, but their contribution needs greater recognition. A collaboration between the Indonesia National Plastic Action Partnership (NPAP), Ocean Plastic Prevention Accelerator (OPPA) and UpLink hopes to address that and other issues around supply chains and technology.
