ClimeCo Announces Its First Plastic Credit Project With Verra


BOYERTOWN, Pennsylvania (TBD)
ClimeCo is thrilled to announce that we have launched our first verified Plastic Credit Project on Verra under our Plastic Credit Program.

The Women and Youth empowerment (WaY) project is an initiative from Conceptos Plásticos; a Colombian company focused on the circular economy with environmental, social, and economic impact. This project recovers post-consumer, non-recyclable, ocean bound plastic waste in Cote d’Ivoire. Its operations remove plastic waste that would otherwise remain in the environment and give it a productive next life. The average amount of plastic waste collected by this project is estimated to be 1,070 tonnes per year.

The WaY project partners with UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund) to build schools from 100% repurposed plastic bricks. These schools are constructed in areas lacking sufficient educational facilities and capacity. Every classroom built uses 5-7 tonnes of recovered plastic waste. UNICEF has the goal to build up to 600 new classrooms in Cote d’Ivoire in 2022.
