Regional waste management infrastructure lacks the capacity to capture and recycle all the plastic waste we generate.
We all currently rely on regional governments to manage our waste, without any alignment to the companies who design the products and packaging that become waste. Extended Producer Responsibility legislation offers a local and mandatory solution. Plastic credits on the other hand offer an additional or integrated voluntary and internationally standardized solution.
Companies can address their plastic footprints by buying plastic credits from certified activities that enable the regional scale-up of collection and recycling infrastructure, while supporting community development.
