GLRPPR Sector Resource: Plastics Scorecard Version 1.0

Title:
Plastics Scorecard Version 1.0

Abstract:
The Plastics Scorecard is a method for evaluating the chemical footprint of plastics and a guide for selecting safer alternatives. Version 1.0 (v1.0) addresses the progress to safer chemicals in plastics manufacturing and the chemical footprint of plastic products. Chemical footprinting is the process of assessing progress toward the use of safer chemicals and away from CoHCs. Clean Production Action defines chemical footprint as the number and mass of CoHCs used in manufacturing and supply chains, and contained in the final product.
