In the light of achieving the Circular Plastics Alliance (CPA) targets of 10 million tonnes of recycled polymers used annually between 2025 and 2030 set up by the European Commission, we are delighted to announce that two unique tools, namely MORE platform and PolyCert Europe are joining forces.
To monitor progress and to achieve these CPA targets, companies will report data on volumes of recycled plastics they transform or use in their products to the MORE platform. Audits, performed in an independent and impartial way are a key element in the CPA system and will guarantee that the reported data is reliable. That is where PolyCert Europe comes in. PolyCert Europe brings organizations, auditing on recycled content in plastics, together to share best practices, to harmonize and to set minimum requirements for audit schemes. Auditors applying PolyCert approved audit schemes are trained experts in the field of plastic conversion and bring added value to companies making use of their services.
Now, MORE and PolyCert Europe join forces to facilitate and to ensure that the CPA reporting process meets the highest standards. High quality audits help companies in better managing their processes and by consequence also in the reporting. The audit organizations member of PolyCert will not only apply CPA-approved audit schemes to verify the claims of companies but also their expert knowledge of plastic converters processes.
