Lo Sze Ping, the chief representative of WWF's Beijing Office, said WWF would help promote Sanya's plastic-free campaign, waste treatment and sustainable development.

WWF will support the research of new technologies and methods, improve waste management measures, further publicity, education and international exchanges, as well as introduce more global projects and resources to Sanya, Lo added.

Launched in 2019, the initiative aims at helping governments, enterprises, the public, research institutions and other parties to find solutions to plastic pollution.

It expects to invite some 1,000 megacities worldwide to join in by 2030, with 20 members currently.
