New guidelines on best practices for credit systems now available

New guidelines on best practices for credit systems related to the circular economy are now available in the Circular Action Hub.

The document contains recommendations for better and more inclusive waste collection and recycling practices to improve livelihoods and strengthen the circular economy. The guidelines were developed by BVRio as part of the PREVENT pilot project “Plastic credits for inclusive and transparent circularity“.

Speaking on behalf of BVRio’s circularity team, which compiled the report, BVRio Director, Pedro Moura Costa, said: “This guidance document describes the principles and criteria and codes of conduct adopted by the Circular Action Hub and its Circular Credits Mechanism and we hope that participants of the Hub and CCM will find it useful. We also hope that it will prove useful to a wider range of users who share the same objectives of improving their practices related to circular economy activities and circular credit projects worldwide.”
