The 3R initiative (3RI), of which Verra is a founding member, has produced a video that explains how Plastic Credits can:

  • Drive investments toward a circular economy;
  • Jumpstart and/or complement extended producer responsibility (EPR) schemes;
  • Support social and environmental improvements throughout the plastic value chain.

Verra’s Plastic Waste Reduction Standard (Plastic Standard) is used to consistently account for and credit a variety of additional plastic waste collection and recycling activities. Plastic Credits issued under the Plastic Program help finance activities that verifiably reduce plastic in the environment.
