Open Consultation: Minimum Requirements for Plastic Waste Recovery Certification / Credits

Is plastic waste collection & recycling adequately monitored and funded in developing countries? You don’t think so?


Then you should join our Consultation on Minimum Requirements for Plastic Waste Recovery Certification / Credits!


We invite you to comment on the developed Minimum Requirements. The consultation will be open until 10 December 2023: Join the consultation!


The PREVENT Waste Alliance aims to work with all relevant stakeholders to create a financing mechanism that supports environmental protection and the international transition to a circular economy.


At the beginning of this year, a group of 16 PREVENT members from the plastic credits space formed a Core Group on Verified Plastic Recovery and committed to a roadmap process of harmonising the plastic credits landscape.

Their goal: Demonstrate the potential of transparent and credible voluntary financing mechanisms considering social, environmental and economic aspects, linked to the UN Plastics Treaty process.

As a first result, the Core Group successfully submitted a joint position on Minimum Requirements of Verified Plastic Recovery Units for the INC-3 meeting in Nairobi. Read the submission!
