Why take action?

It’s hard to imagine that every year, millions of tons of plastics end up in landfills, oceans, and other natural habitats, causing serious damage to wildlife, marine life, and the environment.

We all have a planetary obligation to rethink our relationship with waste.

We take this obligation very seriously, so we commit to removing 10,000 nature-bound plastic bottles for every new member of the Plastic Scorecard.

Our partnership with Ampliphi enables all members of the Plastic Scorecard to access Ampliphi’s Pro Platform to simplify footprint measurement, target setting and the implementation of reduction initiatives.


The plastic pollution crisis has quickly become a mainstream concern for consumers and regulators. Businesses that enact actionable and transparent reduction strategies can future-proof brand image and ultimately reduce costs.

The movement toward a circular economy can help improve a business’ triple bottom line: people, planet and profit. This shift will reward first movers and contribute to a better planet and society.

The underlying methodology supporting the Plastic Scorecard is aligned with what we consider to be the leading sustainability frameworks. Examples include the US Plastic Pact / Ellen Macarthur Global Commitment, World Business Council for Sustainable Development SPHERE Framework, 3R Initiative Guidelines for Corporates, and dozens of scientific publications. 

The Plastic Scorecard’s standards development team are authors of the PREVENT Waste Alliance’s Corporate Plastic Waste Disclosures report.

Additionally, Ampliphi’s core team, Board of Scientific Advisors and network of partners supported the development of the standard.

The Ampliphi Plastic Accounting Platform powering the measurement and analysis of the Plastic Scorecard is aligned with voluntary and mandatory reporting schemes: UK Plastic Tax, Ellen Macarthur Global Commitment, GRI 301 & 306 and the new CDP plastic disclosure. 

Once your company’s plastic footprint is verified, you will receive access to your Plastic Scorecard and communication collaterals. You can also add additional impact verifications or impact investments to your Scorecard to expand your planetary impact.

Your Plastic Scorecard is renewed and maintained when your company achieves the minimum annual reduction targets beginning year two.

Through the Plastic Scorecard’s rigorous methodology, we measure businesses’ plastic footprint annually to ensure targets are being met. To maintain an active standing, every company has to achieve its yearly baseline target.
