COUNT

SUSTAINABILITY

COUNT is committed to making a measurable and positive impact. We define sustainability through the guidelines of ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance).

Environmental

We achieved CO2 neutrality in our internal operations in 2018, 2019, and 2020 by calculating and offsetting the amount of CO2 we produced. COUNT is able to offer petrochemical products with a  smaller carbon footprint by including VER credits.

By facilitating pyrolysis oils, we support technologies that turn plastic waste into a renewable feedstock. In this way, we move the plastic market closer towards a circular economy.

Social

In the fourth quarter of 2020, COUNT established a charity desk to contribute to the local community. COUNT cooperates with the charity Vrienden van Sophia at the Erasmus MC Sophia Children’s Hospital. This is the largest academic children’s hospital in the Netherlands, with a focus on conducting scientific research aimed at improving treatment methods.

We give our employees the opportunity to work on their personal and professional development at COUNT by organising training sessions and workshops every few months.

COUNT strives to make a positive impact on the local community by encouraging our employees to volunteer. Every month at least one employee volunteers in a project of their choosing.

Governance

COUNT adheres to a code of conduct to guarantee the reliability and responsibility of business operations.

At COUNT, we ensure diversity within our team. Our employees have different nationalities, educational backgrounds, expertise, and ages.

Our green stamp

As of January 2020, we began to mark sustainable products we sell with our own green COUNT stamp. The stamp showcases our partners’ efforts in contributing to the sustainable future of our markets.
