Businesses warned of human rights blind spots in recycled plastic supply chains


Businesses procuring recycled plastics now have access to a new responsible sourcing framework, developed to help improve the welfare of the 20 million informal waste workers who are vital to the plastic recycling industry.

The framework has been published by the Circulate Initiative, a non-profit specialising in human rights in recycling supply chains. It is hoped that, as plastic recycling value chains scale up, the framework can help to address prevailing human rights issues faced by waste workers including low pay, forced labour and exposure to health and safety risks.
