Author by Yayasan WWF Indonesia

WWF’s No Plastic in Nature initiative (WWF NPIN) was founded in 2018 and its goal is to stop leakage of plastic by 2030. The initiative is driven by 3 Pillars: Policy, Markets and Cities. With institutional

funding and charitable giving, WWF is working on Cities projects in plastic hotspots in South East Asia with a key focus on city policy, collection and waste management systems, entrepreneurial innovation and citizen science. WWF NPIN works on projects in Indonesia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, China and Hong Kong. One of the programs which is currently running by WWF-Indonesia is to encourage

private sector to implement best practices of plastic waste management and plastic reduction in three focal cities including Jakarta, Depok, and Bogor. Extended Producers Responsibility implementation

and reduction of plastic usage by influential companies are the two main activities we are promoting to private sector and other relevant stakeholders.

As stated in 2015, by Gall and Thompson, plastic ingestion and entanglement has been a serious issue which affects almost 700 marine species. This is only an example of many problems caused by plastics that are miss-managed. The plastic itself is not the core issue as it has become one of the greatest inventions that human has discovered, and it has quite of a long lifespan where we use it in many purposes and occasions. Despite all the benefits it has, plastic waste ends up in our nature with approximately of 100 million metric tons back in 2016. More than 75% of disposable items made of plastics, have become waste and this is a result of poor management and under-developed infrastructure. Not only does it affect nature, but plastic also has another disadvantage which can harm humans. There is a study which shows an individual could be ingesting around 5 grams of plastic every week from the leaked plastic wastes. This is equivalent to the weight of a single credit card.

There are ways to solve plastic problems and one of which is the implementation of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) scheme. This scheme is developed to encourage producers to be held accountable on the development of eco-friendly products as well as post consumption phase. By promoting EPR, it means a strong collaborative commitment among relevant stakeholders is urgently needed in order to halt plastic pollution in nature and to provide a circular economy. In Indonesia, Packaging and Recycling Association for Indonesia Sustainable Environment (PRAISE) is a well-recognized initiative among the plastic discussions. It was initiated by six companies as an alliance to support the development of sustainable and integrated packaging waste management solutions in Indonesia. Let alone the EPR, private sector is also encouraged to reduce its plastic portfolio through many options where it can be embedded as product innovation or substitution to alternative materials. It is also an option to reduce plastic waste leakage caused by unnecessary packaging.

However, waste management is still a very complex problem where no single institution can tackle it alone. Therefore, it needs a holistic (end-to-end) effort which involves all the parties along the chain and WWF Indonesia would like to pilot it in three cities and where successful, it can be replicated in other cities. For that, it would be great to have a comprehensive study on how the plastic waste management system works in those cities. This should include detailed information such as;

  1. Which companies (and their partners) that are actively involved in the issues
  2. Collaborative programs/initiatives being run on plastic waste management and plastic reduction,
  3. Any EPR scheme implementation,
  4. Successful business cases that can be replicated, etc.

Having sufficient information on these indicators would allow WWF Indonesia to define the most applicable strategies and to develop programs which can contribute to decreasing plastic pollution coming from the three focal cities.
