China Dialogue: “Can ‘plastic credits’ help solve the waste crisis?”

This article by Emma Bryce discusses plastic credits and the plastic waste economy. Bryce gives an overview of how plastic credit systems work, as well as the advantages and potential issues with such systems.

Verra’s Plastic Waste Reduction Standard is referenced as a major paradigm for ensuring the integrity of plastic credits and the projects that produce them. Sinclair Vincent is quoted multiple times within the article, describing the Plastic Standard, the projects that are in the process of being registered and verified with Verra, and how the Plastic Standard should be used by companies.
