Guidelines for Reducing Plastic Waste(GRP) and Eco-Friendly Initiative
GRP (Guidelines for Reducing Plastic Waste & Sustainable Ocean and Climate Action Acceleration) is the global environmental guideline and certification for climate adaptation and reduction of plastic usage.
GRP is recommended as the Best Activity in mainstreaming SDGs by the UN General Assembly and is analyzed and announced by the Association for Supporting the SDGs for the UN (ASD). The contents cover 30 main backgrounds and 39 global guidelines including comprehensive information on global environmental issues such as global warming and climate change caused by plastic usage, marine environment protection, socioeconomic environment, corporate opportunity, system, the effectiveness of implementation, innovation, future vision, etc.
The GRP is the eco-friendly guideline of international standards which is based on the:
- UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
- The fifth report of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change)
- UN COP21 (Paris Climate Change Accord)
- Reports of the UN Ocean Conference
GRP provides guidelines for global enterprises' plastic reduction and activities of climate change adaptation.
Reducing petrochemical and plastic products are the key focus points of GRP. This is because these products have a significant impact on global warming and climate change. GRP covers petrochemical material, fashion retail, food and beverages, cosmetic and accommodation, and restaurant businesses. Reducing petrochemical products in these areas can be a good model for responding to global warming.
Following these guidelines, the below companies were granted the GRP certification.
