Alternative Material Tool (MY, PH, SG, TH)
This tool is developed for management and procurement teams of organisations looking at single-use packaging, such as in the HORECA sector. Users can refer to this tool when making strategic decisions about sustainability, such as what kind of packaging to use, and whether to eliminate the use of plastics.
Guidelines for Providing Product Sustainability Information
This tool’s objective is to offer an opportunity for organizations to self-assess and improve the way they are communicating with consumers about product sustainability (through marketing claims, labels, voluntary standards, product declarations, etc.). This tool also serves as a benchmarking tool to organizations that are currently developing new product sustainability information. Ultimately, with this self-assessment tool, the Consumer Information Programme aims to encourage organizations to align their product sustainability communications with the Guidelines, creating an international community of good practice.
Plastic Pollution Calculator
Developed by the University of Leeds as part of the International Solid Waste Association Task Force on Marine Litter, the ISWA Plastic Pollution Calculator takes the approach that plastic pollution is caused by unsound waste management practices and infrastructure. By thoroughly analysing the solid waste management system, and combining this with local socioeconomic, geographical and meteorological factors, the Calculator is able to quantify the specifics of plastic pollution sources and pathways at an unrivalled resolution.
