After an audit, the program has been certified under the Ocean Bound Plastic Neutrality protocol developed by Zero Plastic Oceans and became the first company worldwide to hold this status. Under the Ocean Bound Plastic Certification, Control Union, a 3rd party control body, will control our activities to ensure full compliance with the standard.
Control Union will verify the collection, logistics, and co-processing of the OBP. Moreover, they will check and confirm the sources of OBP and confirm the amount of OBP material collected. To prevent double-counting, before issuing a Neutralization Certificate for the participating company, CU will submit the Neutralization Certificate to Zero Plastic Oceans for its validation in the public registry.
Meanwhile, our co-processing partner, INSEE Ecocycle, operates in full compliance with the United Nations Environmental Protection’s policies, under the Basel Convention Technical Guidelines.
INSEE ensures the highest security and safety levels throughout the entire process. Waste analysis, storage, and pre-treatment processes are closely monitored. Moreover, the co-processing is fully automated to ensure a safe and efficient waste management system. It strictly complies with quality and safety international standards but also environmental regulations of the Vietnam Government and is certified by SEDEX in 4 Pillars.

Participating businesses, supported by TONTOTON, can define their neutralization plan to compensate for their plastic consumption. Therefore, the agreed amount of ocean-bound plastic will be collected on their behalf.
Engaged businesses will be rewarded with an international certificate to attest their support in the fight for ocean plastic pollution. Moreover, corporations can claim plastic neutrality on the amount of plastic rescued and indicate in on their products by bearing the “Plastic Neutral Product” label.
