Plastic Standard Development Committee

The development of the Plastic Waste Reduction Program will be guided by a multi-stakeholder Plastic Standard Development Committee (PSDC). The PSDC includes representatives of social groups, environmental NGOs, recycling and waste management experts, government representatives, complementary initiatives, potential project developers, intermediaries, end users and assessment experts. The PSDC will approve the first version of the Plastic Standard before its release.
