Reducing our carbon footprint one step at a time.

We are trailblazers in the creation of a Circular Plastics Economy for South Africa, but we also have ambitious, broad-reaching sustainability goals with one purpose in mind: to reduce the impact of our operations while increasing the positive measurable effect Verigreen has on people, products and the planet.

Verigreen is built on a culture that embodies innovation, transparency, and continuous improvement. We are working to make social and environmental responsibility an integral part of every product we manufacture, in a manner that respects the needs of our workforce, a global economy and a planet with limited resources.

We continuously strive to reduce our carbon footprint by maximising our resource efficiencies:

  • No waste production processes - 100% of our production waste is recycled
  • Launch of 'recycle-ready' paper box packaging
  • At the forefront of creating compostable "plastic" products in South Africa
  • Shift towards locally sourced materials in our production processes

  • Invested in state-of-the-art technology and extruders to reduce our ratio of kilowatt to tons produced
  • Installed power correction facilities to manage the ratio of wattage coming into the factory and reduce the average power output
  • All lighting changed to LED

  • Installed filters on all manholes throughout our manufacturing facilities to ensure that any spilled plastic pellets do not enter the water system
  • While our product processes do not require large volumes of water, the water we use is stored in chillers in a closed loop system

  • All office plastic is recycled
  • All office paper is recycled
  • All electronics that become outdated are recycled
