Leveraging Multi-Target Strategies to Address Plastic Pollution in the Context of an Already Stressed Ocean

This paper proposes seven intervention approaches that lead with reducing plastic inputs to the ocean but also seek to maximise the reduction of other pollutants as co-benefits. Four types of actions were considered: innovation, infrastructure, policy and mindset. Specific actions of each type were identified across the sectors and pollutants described in the report. These actions were then bundled into the following seven holistic opportunities for action (not in ranked order): 1. Improve wastewater management 2. Improve stormwater management 3. Adopt green chemistry practices and new materials 4. Implement coastal zone improvements 5. Practice radical resource efficiency 6. Recover and recycle the materials we use 7. Build local systems for safe food and water
