A global environmental challenge
The Responsible Plastic Management (RPM) standard focuses on tackling plastic waste through a robust approach to plastic management that equips organisations with the tools to reduce, reuse, and recycle some of the 350 million metric tons of plastic waste produced globally each year. The RPM standard also facilitates transparency when it comes to plastic waste, enabling you to demonstrate your commitment to doing the right thing amidst growing public and political scrutiny.
Our plastic management services
LRQA has a strong reputation in the manufacturing and packing industries, and our specialists are equipped to provide a range of assurance services that will align your systems and processes with the requirements of the RPM standard.
If you’re taking the first step towards better plastic management, LRQA’s gap analysis audit will help you identify areas of strength and weakness within your existing processes and hit the ground running when it comes to certification.
Certification to the RPM standard is a five-step programme against which LRQA auditors will assess your processes and systems and your organisation’s ability to review, monitor, and track plastic flows and continuously improve processes.
LRQA offers a variety of certifications complimentary to the RPM standard such as ISO 14001 certification.
