SB Webinar [Ft. Dell & Seventh Generation] - Valuing Plastics: The Business Case for Measuring, Managing and Disclosing Plastic Use in Consumer Goods

493

Published on

The Plastic Disclosure Project (PDP) and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) announced a new report at Sustainable Brands '14 San Diego identifying the risks and opportunities to brands associated with plastic use. It articulates the business case for measuring, managing and disclosing plastic use, underlined by the new research which identifies $75 billion of annual natural capital costs of plastic use by the consumer goods sector. The research assesses the plastic use and disclosure of the 100 largest companies in the consumer goods industry. This webinar provides a detailed breakdown of the research findings and case studies from Dell and Seventh Generation describing their experience with plastic disclosure.

What You Will Learn:
--The business case for measuring, managing, and disclosing plastic use in the consumer goods industry
--Risks and opportunities associated with plastic use in the consumer goods sector
--Identifying natural capital 'hotspots' to help companies better manage plastic use
--The natural capital benefits of good plastic practices, such as the use of recycled content and end-of-life recovery
--Recommendations to improve the sustainability of plastic use in practice

  5. 5. WHAT IS THE PLASTIC DISCLOSURE PROJECT? PDP asks the business world to treat its “plastic footprint” as seriously as it does other valuable resources… …to create a world in which plastic use adds value without negatively impacting the environment. MEASURE MANAGE DISCLOSE
  6. 6. WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
  7. 7. Valuing Plastic: The Business Case for Measuring, Managing and Disclosing Plastic Use in the Consumer Goods Industry • The Plastic Disclosure Project, with the assistance of the United Nations Environment Programme, commissioned Trucost to develop the report • Objective was to drive greater understanding and management of the risks and opportunities associated with the use of plastics in the consumer goods sector. Release Plan: • Headline Findings presented at Sustainable Brands 2 June. • “Sneak Preview” webinar for the 100 companies mentioned in the report on 19 June. • Full report launch at the UN Environment Assembly in Nairobi, 23 June and Plasticity Forum, New York, 24 June • Open webinar, 9 July VALUING PLASTIC REPORT LAUNCH
  8. 8. KEY RESEARCH FINDINGS Alastair MacGregor Chief Operating Officer Trucost
  9. 9. AIMS OF THE RESEARCH  Identify the main impacts of plastic use within 16 consumer goods sectors.  Map the plastic supply chain upstream and downstream from raw material extraction, manufacturing and use to the end of its life.  Assess the plastic-related natural capital cost and intensity of the largest publicly-listed companies per sector, 100 in total.  Estimate the impact of companies’ plastic use based on disclosure from public sources and data modelling in the absence of company disclosure.  Highlight the natural capital benefits of more sustainable use of plastic, such as recycling.  Present three case studies of business excellence in plastic disclosure and management.  Provide recommendations for companies.

  19. 19. MICROPLASTICS Lush Cosmetics was PDP’s first discloser. Already known for: • All-natural, hand-made products • “We prefer naked” – minimal packaging • Take back program for “black pots” • Customer awareness campaigns, for shark fin, recycling, marine litter, etc. Conducting the PDP disclosure helped Lush recognize the full extent and risk associated with their microplastic use, and took proactive action.

  22. 22. INNOVATIVE DESIGNS Now, Method also runs beach clean-up programmes in Hawai’i and makes “Ocean Plastic” bottles to raise awareness for the marine litter issue. Method’s cleaning products are already known for their “green chemistry”. In addition, they have always tried to have high %PCR plastics in their packaging and continually work to improve recyclability (e.g. plungers). “….as a small soap company, we know we can’t clean up the world’s oceans. But we can raise awareness about the issue and use our business to demonstrate smart ways of using and reusing the plastics that are already on the planet. We think the best way to do that is by proving that solutions exist, even at a small scale.”

  24. 24. UNEP/GPA and Plastic Management Presented by: Heidi Savelli Programme Officer, Marine Litter, GPA
  25. 25. UNEP's approach to environmental management revolves around the creation of effective partnerships. These include: • The Global Partnership for Waste Management • The Global Partnership on Nutrient Management • The Global Partnership on Marine Litter • The Global Wastewater Initiative • The Global Coral Reef Partnership
  26. 26. The GPA, adopted in 1995 and hosted by UNEP, is an intergovernmental programme to prevent the degradation of the marine environment from land-based activities. The GPA now hosts and serves as Secretariat for the Global Partnership on Marine Litter (GPML), which was launched at Rio+20, June 2012
  27. 27. Global Partnership on Marine Litter Seeks to protect human health and the environment by the reduction and management of marine litter Multi-Stakeholder Partnership: • IGOs • Governments • NGOs • Private sector UNEP’s Role: • Facilitate and use its convening power to bring together the various stakeholders • Coordinate with relevant initiatives
  28. 28. • The GPML aims to achieve the following objectives: o To address the (ecological, human health, and economic) impacts of marine litter worldwide o To enhance international cooperation and coordination (with Governments, private sector etc.) o To promote knowledge management, information sharing and monitoring of progress
  29. 29. UNEP’s Actions at the Global level: “Beat the microbead” initiative – 50 NGO’s – 7 languages Establishment of a Marine litter observation system An e-book and brochure on plastics Guidelines on Abandoned, Lost or Discarded Fishing Gear Plastics in Cosmetics – is our personal care polluting out environment? Marine Litter Baseline report – From Rio+20 to 2025 On-line Marine Litter Network Valuing Plastics publication
  30. 30. UNEP’s Actions at the Global level: UN Environment Assembly – Resolution on Marine Plastic Debris and Microplastics, 27/6 2014: “Encourages Governments, intergovernmental organizations, industry and others to cooperate with the Global Partnership on Marine Litter “ Emphasizes that further urgent action is needed to address the challenges posed by marine plastic debris and microplastics, by addressing such materials at source” “Encourages Governments and the private sector to promote more resource-efficient use and sound management of plastics and microplastics”
