Shahab Uddin, Minister, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MOEFCC), Bangladesh, said, “The government is working relentlessly to implement sustainable plastic management to prevent environmental pollution.”

“Combating plastic pollution is an important development Agenda and an opportunity for Bangladesh to create green jobs. The government has responded proactively to this challenge by creating several strategic plans for laws, rules, regulations, policies, and green growth,” The Minister continued.



On Monday, the Environment Minister stated this at a “Policy Activation for Sustainable Plastic Waste Management” seminar at the Sheraton Hotel in Banani, Dhaka (October 17).

Shahab Uddin said, “Uncontrolled plastic waste is extremely harmful to human health, the environment, biodiversity, and all ecosystems. Plastic waste ends up in lakes, canals, and rivers, eventually reaching the sea. Microplastics are making their way into our food supply, endangering human health.”

“The government has completed the ‘Multisectoral Action Plan for Sustainable Plastic Management in the Country.’ The ‘National Action Plan for Sustainable Plastic Management’ emphasizes circular plastic use based on a three-R strategy: reduce, reuse, and recycle,” the minister informed.

“A circular economy will help to create new value chains, skills, innovative products, and environmentally friendly jobs to address social and environmental challenges,” he said.



“The MoEFCC, Bangladesh, has approved a roadmap to ban single-use plastics in coastal areas via gazette notification,” he informed.

He continued, “It should strengthen the public-private cooperation to carry forward the spirit of our National Guiding Policy in this regard. There is nowhere in the world where plastic polythene is as prevalent as in our country, so there is no alternative to raising the awareness of all concerned.”

The minister of Local Government, Rural Development, and Cooperatives was the seminar’s chief guest. Tajul Islam and others were present, as was the Prime Minister’s senior secretary. FBCCI President Tofajzel Hossain Mia, Jasim Uddin, and others.
