Svenja Schulze commented: "We urgently need concrete measures to tackle marine litter. Marine pollution, especially plastic waste, clearly shows us that our behaviour in an interconnected world of global supply and consumption chains is having negative impacts worldwide. With its grant programme, Germany is living up to its global responsibility as a technological and process leader in the environmental sector and as an industrialised country hosting international companies in the plastic sector. By doing this we are implementing several of our pledges regarding the G7 and G20 action plans on marine litter" External link
