ENGAGE

PLASTEAX will be a collective effort. Having laid down the basis of the data platform  we now call upon collective action to scale up the the data coverage.

Through a mix of crowdsourcing, crowdfunding, philanthropic support, and specific data sale, we plan on creating a network of people and organizations committed to transparency, accountability, and action that will help us collect data and make it available.

Provide new data so we can expand PLASTEAX free access coverage

Our methodology is open source, you can generate new dataset and make it available on PLASTEAX. We will provide a quality check and review from our scientific committee before it gets online. 

 

Fund and access datasets for new countries


You can fully or partly fund the data work so we can gradually cover  the world with best in class plastic environmental data. Once a dataset has been fully funded will be made freely available on PLASTEAX

  • Generate knowledge to drive sound field action in countries where you are running projects.

  • Ensure the action you have on the ground and the data you are generating is contributing to the global knowledge, is accessible in a centralized place and in a standardized way.

  • PLASTEAX acts as as catalyst to scale the investment you make in countries and make better data available to all for better decision making.

 

FUNDING AGENCIES & PHILANTROPISTS

WHAT PLASTEAX WILL BRING YOU ?

HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT PLASTEAX ?

The methodology and the data provided for free on PLASTEAX have been funded thanks to philanthropists and funding agencies. We thank those funders for supporting the development of data. Join them in helping to solve the plastic pollution crisis.

 

Poylmer/application specific waste management data will allow you to :

  • Ensure you use the lowest impact packaging on each of our markets. 

  • Feed eco design and net zero plastic leakage strategies with the best in class data.

  • Shape net zero plastic leakage strategies and net circular strategies (including use of plastic crediting schemes). 

  • Monitor your progress.

WHAT PLASTEAX WILL BRING YOU ?

HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT PLASTEAX ?

  • For your market and countries for which high quality data is not yet available, you can purchase the data. You will thus participate in funding a portion of its development. 

  • If you use an eco-design tool that integrates metrics like circularity or leakage, contact us to discuss how we can integrate PLASTEAX to your eco-design tool.

PRIVATE SECTOR & CONSULTANCIES

 
  • Get the best in class plastic waste management data for your country, in order to set priorities for action and monitor progress.

  • Understand the level of plastic pollution in your country / area

  • Identify the waste mismanagement and plastic leakage hotspots and what is causing them

  • Point out to solution pathways that you can translate into national waste reduction strategies.

  • Implement interventions on specific waste streams, to effectively lower the risks of plastic pollution.

  • Inform your waste management policies, targeting lower leakages and increased circularity of materials

  • Monitor the effectiveness of specific interventions over time.

  • Inform eco-modulation in Extended Producer Responsibility schemes on specific polymer of formats.

  • Learn more about this by downloading the Plastic Bi-Cycle model (coming soon).
