We put a lot of emphasis on the way we do business. We strive to find the smartest, most sustainable option. All the while understanding that this is very much a work in progress. We must never stop trying to do better.
The first step of reducing your own CO2 footprint is knowing how much emissions you cause. 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 how switching from virgin plastic to #tide ocean material will affect their footprint.
For more details about our LCA, please get in touch with our CSR-Manager.
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.
