Vertis, Europe's First Plastic Neutral Workplace
Helping Businesses in Their Transition to a Low Carbon Economy
Removing as much plastic from nature as used by our employees and offices.
That Is Our Plastic Neutral Promise.
"Today, we have a once in a generation opportunity to shift towards a net zero carbon future. Our legacy can be a sustainable world. At Vertis, sustainability is not a trend, but our mind-set in every decision we take. This is why we get involved in initiatives such as plastic offsetting, because there is no better way to inspire others than by putting into practice what we preach."
How It Works
Vertis measured their office and employee footprint and is funding the removal of over 5800 kgs of low-value plastic waste from oceans and landfills every year.
Low-value plastic is collected, processed and reused by Waste Ventures India - a waste management service in India that employs and empowers waste pickers to tackle plastic waste.
Vertis will reduce their plastic footprint by taking office actions and providing personalized green living tips & tricks to the team through rePurpose Global.
