Bradford, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom – 18th March 2021 – UK 3D printing filament brand, Filamentive, is excited to announce a commitment to become Climate Positive, thanks to a partnership with Ecologi.
Recognising the immediate need to respond to the Climate Crisis, Filamentive is now investing in environmentally sustainable projects globally – including reforestation and renewable energy production, primarily in the developing world where the most impact can be made.
As a result, carbon emissions arising from production, transport and employee activity will be offset, harnessing a Climate Positive Workforce.
“Sustainability is central to our business model; we’ve already demonstrated this by our commitment to recycled plastics and recyclable packaging, but now, thanks to Ecologi, we can ensure that we are taking further, tangible action on our journey to become a low carbon business. For every 1 kg of plastic sold, we pledge to offset at least 1 kg of CO2. As a result of this, 3D printing users can now be assured that they are making a Climate Positive purchase decision when choosing Filamentive”. Ravi Toor – Founder & Managing Director, Filamentive
