United Nations entities and the private sector have joined forces to tackle sea-based marine plastic litter through the GloLitter Partnerships Project. 

A ground-breaking Global Industry Alliance (GIA), led by the UN GlobalCompact, was  launched in the Port of Oslo, Norway (24 March). The GIA will help tackle one of the most pressing issues in marine ecosystems of our time  -  plastic entering the ocean.

Collecte Localisation Satellites (CLS), Wilhelmsen Ships Service Marine Products, Vow ASA, Aker Biomarine, and Container Overboard System (COBS) will work together with the GloLitter Partnerships Project, an International Maritime Organization (IMO) project with the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) as an implementing partner, to support developing countries in identifying opportunities for the prevention and reduction of marine litter.
