SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and transitional - in a global partnership. 

 

Greenback actively delivers against multiple SDGs by solving a complex global problem. We help create an ethical, predictable, and liquid market for certified post-consumer recycled plastic that’s safe for use in new food-grade plastic packaging. 

Reduce waste
Protect earth

Over $120bn is lost every year through plastic waste not being reused or recycled. 

We will create value by enabling a market for plastics that are not recycled today.

We will create value by enabling a market for plastics that don't get recycled today. 

Improve health
Heart

Open burning of plastic and blocked drains are some of the issues leading to health problems. 

Our plants will safely and economically turn waste plastic into oil

Increase earnings 
Increse earnings

Pickers make a living by collecting waste, but currently receive a small share of the value of the recycled material.

 

A share of the premium for certification will flow to those at the start of the recycling process. 

Sustainable Development Goal 1
Sustainable Development Goal 8
Sustainable Development Goal 10

Plastic waste occurs wherever there are people. A distributed problem needs a distributed solution. 

Our collection and recycling plants are small scale, create no pollution and don’t take power from the local grid.

Invest locally
