The Plastics Scorecard grades plastics on their environmental and human health performance across their life cycle: from feedstock production to manufacturing to use and end of life. The criteria between grades are calibrated to progressively increase the sustainability of a plastic material. Within each life cycle stage, criteria are set for assigning grades to the plastic. The grading criteria are shaped by the Scorecard’s guiding principles of sustainable resources, green chemistry and closed loop systems.
