The Need: Identification and consensus on top barriers to the acceptance and successful processing of certified compostable products.
The Solution: Multi-Stakeholder Workshop resulting in a Roadmap and Action Plan with Barriers, Future States, and Projects.
What makes it particularly smart or circular? Brought together stakeholders from across the value chain to get consensus on barriers and the right next steps required to overcome those barriers.
Results, Benefits, and Outcomes to Date: BPI, with the help of other stakeholders, has moved forward with all 6 projects identified in the Roadmap.
Which of the Pact’s 4 Targets does your work help achieve? 2, 3
Quote: “While the work described in the Roadmap and Action Plan represents the full range of the conversations had during the workshop sessions, it is by no means an exhaustive list of what will be required to get us to the ultimate goal of increased organics diversion by way of a single set of acceptability criteria for compostable products. It is, however, a complete expression of the challenges and opportunities in front of us today. BPI looks forward to collaborating with you and your organization as we continue this important work.” – Wendell Simonson
