RPM StandardResponsible Plastic Management Standard
We've developed a unique best practice standard
The RPM Standard is designed to help your organization measure and manage its plastic use and to provide assurance of your responsible approach to plastics.
This is a systems and process-based Standard, developed and peer reviewed by plastic, sustainability and environmental certification experts.
The goal is reducing plastics use. The evidence is our RPM Standard.
The best-practice Responsible Plastic Management Standard has been developed as a credible and positive response to the increased public and political scrutiny around plastic waste.
The RPM Standard complements and aligns with existing ISO Standards (ISO 14001:2015, 17422:2018); and collaborative initiatives and goals including national Plastic Pacts, Ellen MacArthur Foundation, EU Plastics Strategy and the UN Environment Programme for Tackling Plastic Pollution. We will review and update the Standard periodically in accordance with ISO and ISEAL Standard Setting Code of Good Practice.
