Plastic Risk Dashboard
Planet Tracker has measured the risk as perceived by corporate management by scrutinising management filings and statements. We analysed 8,245 reports and transcripts of 59 corporates across the plastic value chain by using a natural language processing (NLP) algorithm. The plastics universe spans three main segments of the plastics value chain: the upstream resin producers (producers), the midstream containers and packaging converters (PC&P), and the downstream fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies. To help readers examine the measured risk as perceived by corporates, we developed a dashboard which allows users to filter by the segment or theme of disclosure.
