Plastic Recovery and Recycling Project Accounting Program

Scaling Up Plastic Waste Recovery and Recycling

Public Consultation

The first public consultation on the draft Plastic Recovery and Recycling Project Accounting Standard (Plastic Standard) was open from 26 February until 26 April. We will soon publish a summary of the comments and how they will be addressed.

Verra seeks input from a broad range of audiences as part of the ongoing multi-stakeholder process by which the Plastic Accounting Program is being developed. More than 30 technical experts representing over 15 countries — including environmental non-governmental organizations (NGOs), recycling and waste management entities, project developers, related initiatives and potential end users — contributed to the initial draft of the Plastic Standard.

Public comments on the draft Plastic Standard will ensure that it is practical for use by all types of plastic waste recovery and recycling activities and that it meets corporates’ needs. A second public consultation will be held before the Plastic Accounting Program’s launch.
