A new report, the first ever of its kind, has analysed the world’s top companies and the natural capital valuation of plastic use in the consumer goods sector. This report will be being explained for the first time by one of its creators, Richard Mattison, CEO Trucost, at a major event in New York City, the Plasticity Forum.
"Valuing Plastic: The Business Case for Measuring, Managing and Disclosing Plastic Use in the Consumer Goods Industry" developed by the Plastic Disclosure Project (PDP) in partnership with United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Trucost, articulates the business case for companies to measure, manage and disclose information on their annual use and disposal of plastic. The report uses natural capital valuation to identify ‘hotspots’ of pollution or resource use in the consumer goods industry.
