Coeficientes pl谩sticos globales para la contabilidad ecol贸gica
Informes de regeneraci贸n empresarial

La Global Ecobrick Alliance mantiene y publica coeficientes para el consumo de pl谩stico, la producci贸n y la equivalencia de CO2 para las empresas que rastrean y divulgan sus impactos pl谩sticos.

En 2021, GEA inici贸 un compendio de coeficientes de generaci贸n de pl谩stico basado en la amplia experiencia de nuestros 400 entrenadores que trabajan con pl谩stico en todo el mundo.

A partir de junio de 2022, esta p谩gina y nuestro listado aqu铆 todav铆a est谩n en desarrollo con el objetivo de formalizar nuestros coeficientes para fin de a帽o.

Additive Plastic Coefficients

Impacts that add plastic to the biosphere.

Plastic Production

Plastic generated outside of or sent outside of your facilities.

Take-out Coffee

The average plastic generated by one coffee to-go (including cup, lid, sugar packet lining, stirrer, etc.)

0.01 Kg plastic

Take-out Meal

The average plastic generated by a meal at a restaurant taken to go (including plastic used in the kitchen, for presentation, take out, drinks, etc.)

0.125 Kg per meal

Domestic Air Travel

The average amount of plastic generated by a single domestic air travel flight (ticket, stickers, food and drink service, snacks, meal, etc.).

0.550 kg per ticket

International Air Travel

The average amount of plastic generated by a single international air travel flight (ticket, stickers, food and drink service, snacks, meal, etc.)

0.750 kg per ticket




Plastic Consumption

Plastic generated within your facilities.

Propane Gas

Plastic involved in the consumption of one LPG tank (any size)

0.001 Kg of plastic per cannister

Laptop

The purchase and use of a laptop entails plastic generation (packaging, cables, casing, screen, ketboard, etc)

0.5 Kg over lifetime of use

Smart Phone

The purchase and use of a smart phone entails plastic generation (packaging, cables, casing, screen, ketboard, etc)

0.4 Kg over lifetime of use

Subtractive Plastic Coefficients

Impacts that remove plastic from the biosphere

Recycling

The global average for full recovery and ongoing reuse of recyled plastic is 9%. Enterprise's should track the percentage of their plastic production and consumption that is recycled and then multiply accordingly.

0.09 Kg per 1 Kg of recycled plastic

AES Plastic

Plastic that has been ecobricked and authenticated as having met the criteria of plastic sequestration, can be claimed as authenticated Ecobrick Sequestered Plastic.

1kg of AES plastic = 1 Kg of plastic removed from the biosphere

1 Brikcoin

A brikcoin on the GoBrik blockchain corresponds to a certain amount of plastic sequestered. This changes each year.

1 BRK = 0.098 Kg plastic

Plastic CO2 Equivalencies

Various flows of plastic have significant carbon emissions.


Recycling

Recycling plastic has various carbon emissions (transportation, reprocessing, etc.)

1kg recycled plastic = 0.689 Kg of CO2

Reference: Plastic & Climate: The Hidden Costs of a Plastic Planet, Center for International Environmental Law p.59 (offsets not counted)


Incineration

When plastic is burned it's carbon molecules join with oxygen molecules to generate carbon dioxide.

1 kg plastic = 2.97 Kg CO2

Reference: Plastic & Climate: The Hidden Costs of a Plastic Planet, Center for International Environmental Law p.59 (offsets not counted)


Landfilling

Plastic that is not recycled, incinerated or sequestered ends up in the earth, air and land.

1 Kg plastic = 0.065kg

Reference: Plastic & Climate: The Hidden Costs of a Plastic Planet, Center for International Environmental Law p.59 (offsets not counted)




One-time CO2 impact of plastic

The GEA has calculated the one time impact of consuming 1 kg of consumed plastic.

1 Kg plastic = 6.06kg CO2

The GEA has calculated the net impact of 1 kg of consumed plastic over time.

1 Kg plastic = Data pending

Plastic Sequestration

Plastic that is kept out of industrial processing (i.e recycling, incineration and landfilling) has a substractive CO2e ipact of:

1 AES Plastic = 6.05 CO2e



Do your own Regen Reporting

To do our own GEA ecological accounting we use an enterprise catalyst account on the GoBrik platform. It allows us to track our plastic consumption and ecobricking each month. You can do so too!

Our Catalyst Program for keen green enterprises enables you to generate ecological impacts for your company or project. New tools for carbon and biodiversity accounting are being added for 2022.
