Material Selection and Substitution

At GPC we believe that decoupling the economy from environmental impact starts with informed materials choices. Working alongside world-renowned organisations and leading experts in the field, we have developed a compelling mix of materials knowhow, software services and advanced sustainability approaches; approaches that can be applied to addressing the global waste management crisis.

Our breadth and depth of experience in materials, technology and operations coupled with our specialist knowledge of sustainability, means that we are ideally placed to help companies manage systems and product risks arising due to materials; and to support sustainable selection and substitution of plastics materials.


We have undertaken many projects in the selection and rationalisation of plastics materials, as well as in the development and implementation of material strategies for companies.
