The first public consultation on the draft Plastic Waste Reduction Standard (Plastic Standard) has concluded. The next consultation will be held in July and August 2020.
The Plastic Program is being developed through a multi-stakeholder process. 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 — are contributing to the development of the Plastic Program. It is being piloted by activities in developing and developed countries. In order to make program development as open as possible, Verra also seeks input through public consultations.
Public comments on the Plastic Program will ensure that it is practical for use by all types of plastic waste recovery and recycling activities and that it meets corporates’ needs.
Many thanks to all who helped improve the Plastic Program by participating in the first public consultation. This public consultation period was open from 26 February to 26 April 2020.
We reviewed all comments and prepared a summary of how comments are being considered as we develop the Plastic Standard, v0.2 and the Plastic Program Guide, v0.1. Click here to read the comments and how they were addressed.
The first consultation version of the Plastic Standard is available here: Plastic Recovery and Recycling Project Accounting Standard, v0.1.
A webinar was held on 5 and 26 March to provide an overview of the Plastic Program and the Plastic Standard.
