BONN - A new United Nations global agreement on hazardous chemicals and waste is expected to lead to sector-focused initiatives involving key heavy users of chemicals such as the textile industry.

The UN Environment Programme's (UNEP) Global Framework on Chemicals was finally agreed after years of talks and at the end of 16 hours of overnight negotiations at the Fifth International Conference on Chemicals Management (ICCM5) in Bonn, Germany.

Based around 28 targets, it outlines a roadmap for countries and stakeholders to address the lifecycle of chemicals, including products and waste, and puts pollution and waste at the same level as climate change and nature loss which already have UNEP frameworks in place.
