Plastic Leak Project CLSD
The environmental impacts of plastics and microplastics are currently omitted from Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) due to it being a novel area of science and this omission favours the LCA scoring of synthetic fibres over natural fibres. The Plastic Leak Project (PLP) is a pre-competitive multi-stakeholder initiative with over 20 partners to deliver a science-based methodology to map, measure and forecast plastic leakage along their value chain. These insights provide environmental ratings agencies and policy makers with a strong foundation to tackle plastic pollution and account for its impacts on the environment.
