THE PLASTIC STANDARD
Measuring the True Impact of Collection & Recycling Projects
The Plastic Waste Reduction Standard (Plastic Standard), developed and managed by Verra, helps companies that have fully maximised efforts to reduce the plastic footprint of their operations to invest in projects that collect and recycle plastic waste. It establishes rules and methodologies to quantify and account for the collection and/or recycling of waste and incorporates social and environmental safeguards.
Plastic credits representing one tonne of plastic collected or recycled in addition to that which would happen under existing conditions may be issued if an independent auditor verifies that they meet the requirements of the Plastic Standard.
