The European Commission has launched a consultation to collect the views of stakeholders and citizens with regard to the policy options to reduce microplastics entering the marine environment.
The objectives of the consultation are:
- Informing and enabling feedback, giving the possibility to a broad range of stakeholders to provide views, feedback and perceptions on the concern around microplastics emissions and possible options for reduction; and
- Gathering information and data that cannot be found through desk research and additional sources of evidence as regards to the sources and policy options for the reduction of microplastics emissions.
The IMarEST would like to encourage members to complete the survey here.
