Our mission is to keep the Plastic footprint methodology up to date and evolving. The Plastic Footprint Network supports organizations in measuring plastic leakage along their value chain, ensuring the credibility of the accounting results and empowering mitigation strategies to put an end to plastic pollution.
WHY THE PLASTIC FOOTPRINT NETWORK ?
A growing number of organizations are assessing their plastic footprint, committing to scale their pledges, and embarking on a transformative journey.
The Plastic footprinting is a novel methodology based on the Plastic Leak Project guidelines developed by Quantis & EA-Environmental Action in partnership with 35 public, private and scientific organizations in 2019. This pre-competitive multi-stakeholder initiative is since then used by hundreds of organizations. It allows companies to assess how well plastic items are managed along their supply chain up to their final fate.
But plastic footprinting is a fast-evolving space and there is a need for alignment and consensus among stakeholders and users on applying the plastic footprinting methodology consistently. Continuous alignment is key to ensure the credibility of the accounting results.
The Plastic Footprint Network is a vehicle to keep the methodology up to date and helps users leverage the methodology for their plastic assessment.
Steered by a group of experts having shaped the plastic footprinting space and its usage in mitigation strategy setting, we are at the crossroads to continue empower users by playing the role of facilitators and by hosting a scientifically sound and future-proof methodology for plastic footprint assessment.
