ClimeCo Partners with Conceptos Plásticos to Develop A Global Plastic Credit Project

School made from recycled plastic construction bricks

ClimeCo has launched its Plastic Credit Program to partner with companies worldwide to develop projects to scale the recovery and recycling of ocean bound plastics. These projects generate plastic credits to provide supporting companies with a structured, verified solution to help address their plastic footprint and sustainability program communications. 

The Project

The Women and Young empowerment (WaY) project is an initiative from Conceptos Plásticos; a Colombian company focused on the circular economy with environmental, social, and economic impact. The WaY project is recovering post-consumer, non-recyclable, ocean bound plastic waste in Cote d’Ivoire. The project’s operations remove plastic waste that would otherwise remain in the environment and give it a productive next life. The recovered plastic waste is repurposed in Conceptos Plásticos’ facility to produce construction bricks. The project will implement a plastic economic value model that can be expanded to other African countries and beyond through this recovery and repurposing process. 

The WaY project is partnered with UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund) to build schools from the recycled bricks. These schools are constructed in areas lacking sufficient educational facilities and capacity. Every classroom built uses almost 7 tonnes of recovered plastic waste.  UNICEF has the goal to build up to 600 new classrooms in Cote d’Ivoire in 2022.

The project gives women participating in The WaY Methodology employment opportunities and a new source of income. Women collectors bring in collected plastic waste to be recycled in exchange for compensation and benefits such as health insurance. The project empowers women collectors with increased income, recycling industry labor rights, environmental practices, and child education.  Click here to learn more about the project’s social and environmental impacts.

Support Plastic Waste Projects

ClimeCo works closely with project developers to help find support through the purchase of plastic credits.  The credit mechanism provides funding for these projects to expand their geography, collector workforce, and recycling facility capacity. ClimeCo partners with projects like The WaY and developers like Conceptos Plásticos to help clients with their plastic sustainability goals, including how best to support environmental plastic removal, develop recycling projects, and implement credits as part of an overall corporate plastic waste reduction effort.

ClimeCo Enters Strategic Partnership with Heng Hiap Industries, an Integrated Plastic Recycling Company


BOYERTOWN, Pennsylvania (Nov. 16, 2021) – ClimeCo, a leader in the development and management of environmental commodities, is pleased to announce the formation of a strategic partnership with Heng Hiap Industries (HHI), an advanced recycled plastic manufacturer. Determined to prevent plastic from ending up in the world’s oceans and landfillsHHI pledges to recycle 30,000 tonnes of Ocean Bound Plastic (OBP) by 2025. Their current focus is to recover and remove OBP from Malaysia’s shorelines, rivers, islands, and coastal communities. Malaysia is ranked 5th globally for ocean plastic waste.  

ClimeCo is excited to partner with HHI to recover thousands of tonnes of OBP waste,” said Chris Parker, Director of ClimeCo’s Plastic Program. While providing a productive next life for the removed plastic, HHI’s operations will benefit coastal fishing and ecotourism communities by protecting the local marine biodiversity.”

Rooted in their belief that plastic is a resource, HHI converts OBP to upcycled finished goods, such as Louvre chairs and other household items. This operation creates a fully sustainable, closed-loop system where resources are reused and recycled as part of its circular design and solutions.  

“We are living in a decisive decade where the future is not yet determined and it depends on how we play our cards,” said Kian Seah, CEO of HHIWe could continue to destabilize the planet until the point of no return, or we could respond in a united front to reverse the damage. All effort in achieving plastic neutrality to offset the plastic footprint is the first step towards a smart plastic neutral society. We are honored to collaborate with likeminded partners who are believers and gamechangers to enable a cleaner, safer and happier planet which will benefit us all.”

HHI is the first company to globally receive the prestigious OBP certification by Zero Plastic Oceans and 3rd party verification and auditing performed by the leading global certification specialists, Control Union Certifications. ClimeCo is proud to exclusively market the plastic credits generated by this project to help fund future plastic waste neutralization efforts and potential expansion project opportunities.
