Open Letter to Ocean Conservancy regarding the Report “Stemming the Tide”

IPEN has joined NGOs and colleagues in an open letter to the Ocean Conservancy about its report “Stemming the Tide.” The report promotes incineration in Asia as a supposed "solution" to the problem of ocean plastics.

The letter was written primarily based on contributions from organizations in the countries that were targeted in the report (Philippines, China, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Thailand), and has been endorsed by over 200 organizations and individuals from over 30 countries around the world.
