The problem of managing plastic waste is the focus of the entire world today. Mismanaged plastics make a significant contribution to the increase in carbon emissions as a result of the release of plastic chemicals that are exposed to sunlight or are burned. The plastics industry which continues to experience an increase in production makes plastic waste continue to increase from year to year. This study aims to determine the relationship of the effect of the amount of plastic production on increasing the amount of co2 emission carbon at the global level using a simple linear regression analysis tool. The results showed that the production of plastics had a positive and significant effect, which meant that the higher the plastics produced by the plastics industry, the higher the amount of CO2 emission carbon. Similarly, the GDP per capita variable, showed positive and significant results. this means that the income pattern of the world community still has a positive effect on environmental degradation.
