We put a lot of emphasis on the way we do business, are striving to find the smartest, most sustainable option. All the while understanding that we must never stop trying to do better.
The first step of reducing your own CO2 footprint is knowing how much emissions you cause. In June 2022 we have had our #tide ocean material® independently analyzed by recognized third party Carbotech, an environmental consultancy based in Switzerland. Brands and manufacturers using our granules therefore know exactly in what ways replacing virgin plastic with #tide ocean material will affect their footprint.
For more details about our LCA, please get in touch with our CSR-Manager.
Using #tide ocean material® instead of virgin plastic saves 80% of CO2-emissions.
Compared to regular recycled PET from the EU-market, #tide ocean material® still produces only half the climate impact.
The factor by which the benefits of removing the plastic from the environment outweigh the climate impact of #tide ocean material®.
Running a global supply-chain for upcycled ocean-bound plastic by nature involves a significant amount of logistics and transportation. We always try to minimize shipping – our strategy is to serve markets with regionalized supply-chains, the plastic ideally is processed close to the source.
But there are transports we can't avoid. To offset those greenhouse gas emissions, we have established a partnership with the Swiss non-profit myclimate. They are one of the world leaders in voluntary CO2-compensation measures. myclimate invests in climate protection projects all around the globe. Among other things, they support forestation efforts or coral reef restoration.
