R3 Certifying Organizations
ENVIRONMENTALLY PREFERRED RATING is a pilot program developed by the California Film Extruders and Converters Association. It is the first environmental accreditation for the plastics industry and focuses on the operations of plastic processor facilities. Environmentally Preferred Rating uses an oversight committee made up of members from printing, colorants/additives, recycled resins, technology, manufacturing and science/academia sectors. The committee establishes standards, revises their program and discusses issues during the auditing process.
