Now is the time to create a meaningful environmental and business impact

Why plastic credits will play a key role?


Reducing waste

Plastic credits offer a solution to the plastic waste problem by facilitating the establishment of efficient, effective waste collection and recycling systems, thus preventing it from entering the environment.

Improving wellbeing

Plastic credits remove plastic from the environment and oceans, thereby restoring ecosystems and reducing the environmental and health hazards of plastic waste, which negatively affects the wellbeing of all life. 

Sustainability objectives

Incorporating plastic credits into plastic reduction and sustainability strategies can significantly contribute to achieving environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) and plastic stewardship objectives.

What are plastic credits?

Plastic credits are a market-based mechanism designed to incentivise the reduction, removal, or recycling of plastic waste. Similar to carbon credits, plastic credits represent the quantifiable reduction of plastic waste and can be bought and sold to support projects combatting plastic waste and restoring ecosystems. By purchasing plastic credits, businesses can balance their plastic footprint and support initiatives that promote recycling infrastructure, waste management systems, education, and other measures aimed at reducing plastic waste and promoting a circular economy.

Proven methodologies

We use proven plastic waste collection and recycling methodologies developed collaboratively with experts and stakeholders and regularly reviewed for effectiveness in evaluating plastic-removal project impacts.

Impactful results

Each of our plastic credits purchased represents 1,000 kg of plastic cleaned up and recycled. By buying plastic credits, you help reduce the amount of plastic waste ending up in our oceans, harming marine life and disrupting delicate ecosystems. 

Empower yourself with plastic credits,
making a tangible and meaningful impact on the world

Why are plastic credits important?

"One of the key reasons why plastic credits are important is that they provide a tangible mechanism for companies to invest in infrastructure, collection, and recycling projects focused on plastic waste. By purchasing plastic credits, organisations contribute to the development of systems that collect and process plastic while also supporting the workers involved, particularly in developing countries. This not only helps to reduce the environmental impact of plastic waste but also promotes sustainable development and improves the livelihoods of those involved in waste management."

"Plastic credits encourage companies to adopt a holistic approach to addressing plastic waste. They incentivise the prioritisation of reduction strategies, such as eliminating unnecessary packaging and promoting supply chain circularity. Plastic credits should be seen as complementary to reduction efforts, providing an additional tool to offset the plastic that is still being produced while progress is made toward long-term sustainability goals. By embracing plastic credits, businesses can make meaningful contributions to addressing the plastic waste crisis while fostering positive social and environmental change."

How do projects get verified?

As the largest Dutch project developer of nature-based solutions, DGB offers attractive long-term returns through a combination of our extensive expertise and the robust underlying characteristics of our assets. Our premium-quality carbon projects are all independently verified. 


Pre-feasibility & feasibility studies

In this phase, we assess a potential carbon project's feasibility by analysing its environmental impact, technology needs, and financial viability.


Project design & validation

We create a detailed project blueprint with carbon reduction/sequestration strategies and goals + validate it against established carbon standards/protocols.


Project development & certification

This phase implements and monitors the project, then obtains certification to ensure it meets carbon reduction and sustainability standards.


Under management

We monitor and adjust the project to maintain its sustainability and carbon reduction objectives throughout its lifetime, ensuring it's impact.

How are plastic credits created?

Collaborative projects with credit-issuing organisations operate on the ground to retrieve plastic waste that would have otherwise entered the natural environment. 

By adopting efficient end-of-life management strategies such as mechanical or advanced recycling, reprocessing, or co-processing, all recyclable plastic materials are repurposed. Every 1,000 kilograms of plastic recycled or recovered through these impactful projects earns a certified plastic credit, evidencing its positive environmental impact.
