PT Inocycle Technology Group Tbk, an Indonesian clean technology company based on the management of recycling PET and other plastic waste, has achieved Planet Mark certification.
This is PT Inocycle’s second year of business carbon footprint reporting and Planet Mark certification. Since certifying to Planet Mark, the company has set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually.
PT Inocycle’s total carbon footprint in the year ending December 2020 was 19,699.6 tCO2e, a reduction of 2.8%. PT Inocycle’s total carbon per employee in the year ending 2020 was 24.1 tCO2e, an increase of 6%.
The carbon saved by PT Inocycle’s efforts has saved the same amount of carbon that is sequestered by 695 acres of forestland.
“Congratulations to PT Inocycle on achieving its carbon reduction target. After measuring and committing to reduce its carbon footprint, PT Inocycle has put actions behind its words with this year’s results. PT Inocycle’s products are built on sustainability, and now the company is on the journey towards decarbonising its operational emissions. This is central to any low-carbon company’s strategy, and it should be applauded.”
PT Inocycle’s vision is to become the biggest sustainable eco-friendly recycled fibre company that produces world class quality products. PT Inocycle turns more than 2 billion plastic bottles into resources every year for companies from over 10 countries in multiple industries including automotive, furnishing, fashion, agriculture and infrastructure. In 2019 PT Inocycle recycled over 38 million kilograms of PET plastic bottles into Recycled Polyester Staple Fibre (Re-PSF). PT Inocycle is the only company in Indonesia certified to the Global Recycled Standard (GRS) in recycled PET bottles.
Companies operating in the green economy face the added requirements to show their own environmental credentials. Creating products or services that help companies reduce their environmental impact is not enough, companies in this space must also show an ability to walk the walk in their own environmental processes. Demand for rigorous sustainability policies that extend throughout a business is ever increasing, and companies operating in green industries need to stay ahead of the modern consumer to thrive.
As part of the Planet Mark certification, Inocycle has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
