Plastic waste is a global issue. Mismanaged plastic waste can have a detrimental effect on our environment, health and the economy. The Indonesian government aims to reduce marine plastic debris by up to 70 per cent by 2025. Complementary to this, CSIRO Australia’s national science agency and their Ending Plastic Waste Mission, which has a goal of an 80 per cent reduction in plastic waste entering the environment by 2030. The Plastics Innovation Hub Indonesia is a bilateral initiative which aims to support both countries in achieving these goals.
