Plastic Disclosure Project (PDP)

Trucost was commissioned to assess the business case for companies to measure and manage their plastic impacts.

The Plastic Disclosure Project (PDP) is a project working to reduce the environmental impact of the world’s rising use of plastics in products and packaging.

PDP in partnership with United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) asked Trucost to assess the business case for companies to measure, manage and disclose information on their annual use and disposal of plastic.
