Plastic Credits

We help businesses create, execute and measure their plastic credit strategy.

That plastics, particularly single-use plastics, are harmful to the global environment is well-known.

But weaning away from plastic usage at an industrial scale is challenging. No matter where you are in your plastic management journey, we're here to help you achieve the best possible results.

Usage of plastics was long seen as a necessary evil. Plastic is inexpensive, ubiquitous, and notoriously harmful to the planet. In recent times, many initiatives at global, national and local level have taken place to address the situation. From individuals to large organisations to nations, every participant in the ecosystem has a role to play.

Getting a handle on your plastic usage is not easy. But with our expertise and experience, we help you take the challenge head on. We help you understand where you are in your plastic usage journey, advise you on best practices and work out solutions that can help you benefit greatly from both a plastic usage policy as well as offsetting plastic usage with plastic credits.

Plastic Credits

What are
Plastic Credits ?

This credits are measurable, verifiable, and transferable units representing a specific quantity of plastic that has been collected from the environment, or recycled. Climeto sees plastic credits as an opportunity for companies to invest in regional collection and recycling infrastructure. Thereby plastic credits can help companies take responsibility in creating the conditions of a circular economy, beyond existing reduction and redesign efforts. We believe plastic credits should work alongside, or enhance, Extended Producer Responsibility regulation.

Why purchase Plastic Credits ?

Regional waste management infrastructure lacks the capacity to capture and recycle all the plastic waste we generate. We all currently rely on regional governments to manage our waste, without any alignment to the companies who design the products and packaging that become waste. Extended Producer Responsibility legislation offers a local and mandatory solution. Plastic credits on the other hand offer an additional or integrated voluntary and internationally standardized solution. Companies can address their plastic footprints by buying plastic credits from certified activities that enable the regional scale-up of collection and recycling infrastructure, while supporting community development.




    What is Carbon Offsetting?

    Carbon offsetting is about funding projects around the world that help reduce carbon emissions by a measurable and verifiable amount. Without the extra “carbon finance” from people or organisations offsetting their emissions, these projects would not have happened.

    What is Carbon Offset ‘Retirement’ and how is it Publicly Viewable?

    Carbon offsets are retired on international carbon registries – such as Markit, APX and Gold Standard these will either be retired in the name of Carbon Footprint Ltd or in the name of the client.
    All Carbon Footprint Ltd's carbon retirements are audited as part of the QAS process to check that we have retired enough carbon credits of the appropriate type and standards to meet all out annual carbon offset sales.

    How do we know the carbon offset has been made?

    Carbon Footprint Ltd is certified under the Quality Assurance Standard (QAS).
    Originally set up by the UK Government. It is now run by as an independent not-for-profit organisation.
    The QAS independently audits all Carbon Footprint Ltd’s carbon offsetting to a rigorous 40 point plan annually.
    The auditing is completed by AEA – Ricardo, global experts who produce the annual UK Carbon Conversion factors and methodology that are the industry touchstone for greenhouse gas reporting.
