This petition was submitted during the 2017–2019 Conservative government
Petition All companies by law publish plastic usage (product and packaging) annual audit
Just as companies must publish financial audits , an audit of the amount and types of plastic it uses for creation of product and packaging/every day use is of vital public interest and should be made to be published in detail so we consumers can make informed choices on where our money is going.
The problem of plastic pollution is well documented, it not only harms a multitude of animal species it is also in the human food chain and is also causing havoc there too. Companies make choices on what materials they choose to produce with and package with. As consumers we demand transparency and auditing by law on the amount and types of plastic (e.g. recyclable and non recyclable) being generated by each business in all aspects to be made public each year.
