GRP is the eco-friendly guideline of international standards. The GRP is based on the:

  1. UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  2. 5th Report of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change)
  3. UN COP21 (Paris Climate Change Accord)
  4. Reports of the UN Ocean Conference and also provides guidelines for global enterprises’ plastic reduction and activities of climate change adaption.

Reducing petrochemical and plastic products is a key part of the GRP. In addition, GRP covers petrochemical, material, fashion retail, food and beverages, cosmetic and accommodation and restaurants sections also enterprises with outstanding performance in GRP can be approved as a partner enterprise.

Certification of GRP for 7 main purposes : The following are the 7 points that are considered in the GRP and which of ASD is striving to cope with throughout the project.

▷  We urge to beware of the environmental expense which the government, the National Assembly, and the global corporations have to cover for the current environmental pollution, especially the marine pollution is persisting. In the Asia-Pacific coastal area, where extensive ocean pollution occurs, the member states of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) bear the expenses about $1.3 billion a year.

▷ We recommend global corporations to take the concrete actions to cut the usage of plastic, which is the main cause of the marine pollution. The world produces 330 million tons of plastic every year and about 12 million tons of it flows into the ocean and breaks down into small pieces and becomes a micro-plastic. The amount of plastic in the ocean today is enough to circle the Earth about 400 times.

▷ We suggest fast fashion companies to prevent to overuse of water and let the contaminated water out into the ocean. Currently, 7,000 to 10,000 liters of water are used to make a pair of jeans, and 2,700 liters of water, accounting for 20 percent of the waste water that fast fashion companies send to the ocean.

▷ We conduct campaigns on the issues of global warming and resource development, which causes the North and South Poles to disappear. When the glaciers in the Arctic Ocean, including Greenland melt, there will be a 6.5-meter rise in sea level from the current level, and when the Antarctic ice sheet melts, it will rise at 73 meters. Half of the U.S. population lives within 80 kilometers of the coast, and 40 percent of the world’s population, including Asia, Europe and Africa, live in coastal areas, so the rise in sea level is expected to bring upon a huge climate crisis.

▷ We run carbon reducing campaigns for enterprises and people to cope with the environmental crisis which is directly related and closely interlinked to our lives such as fine dust.

▷ We urge eco-friendly production lines for all plastic manufacturing enterprises. Also in order to make an institutional framework, we continually discuss it with the National Assembly.

▷ We recommend global eco-friendly fundraising and the issue of sustainable bonds

ASD established an eco-friendly green fund for the environment. This fund encourages enterprises to recognize the significant environmental costs which will incur in the future and introduces an eco-friendly process in the general production line. In addition, to expand ESG  management, we advocate the issuing of sustainability bonds, green bonds. GRP was developed based on ‘Green Bond Principles Voluntary Process Guidelines’ of the ICMA. This can develop into a new decision making component for global investors and accelerate the green efforts of enterprises’.

We support plastic reduction activities with the United Nations Ocean Conference.

Reporting the contents of the certification to the 74th UN General Assembly session, the President of the General Assembly Tijjani Muhammad-Bande congratulated the establishment of the GRP Certification and encouraged the promotion of sustainable business models
