Supplementary notes

2060 baseline is a business-as-usual approach

The Regional Action policy scenario models the impact of a policy package to improve the circularity of plastics use and diminish the environmental impacts of plastics. The package ensures that economic growth can continue, while reducing plastic leakage to the environment. It comprises a mix of fiscal and regulatory policies targeting all phases of the plastics lifecycle, but is more ambitious for OECD countries than for non-OECD countries.

The Global Ambition policy scenario explores a very stringent policy package that aims to reduce plastic leakage to near zero by 2060. The package includes the same instruments as the Regional Action policy scenario, but with more ambitious targets. Furthermore, it is implemented more rapidly and globally.

Further information on policy scenarios can be found in the OECD Global Plastics Outlook.
