Evoco renews Third-Party Evaluation for GreenCircle Certification of FATES bio-foam

[Toronto – April 22, 2024] – Evoco Ltd., A powerful materials innovation company at the forefront of plant-based science, is pleased to announce our renewal of GreenCircle Certification on Earth Day for 2024.

Evoco takes action in their commitment to supply-chain transparency by proving that the bio-content is achieved at a commercial scale through GreenCircle Certification.

FATES™️ bio-foam product formulas for 107H at 72% and 106S at 76% Biobased carbon content*.

The goal of achieving the Bio-based Content Certification is to certify the material in a product on a percent-by-weight basis and percent renewable carbon to total carbon (based on ASTM).

GreenCircle, with its in-depth supply chain evaluation and thorough approach and execution, eliminates companies that simply make misleading statements. Based on ASTM D6866 (bio-based carbon content) and EN 16785 (assessing all bio-based content from biomass, not just carbon). 

By using carbon from plants in our materials, we ensure that when the final product reaches its end of life, it can return to the Earth with minimal impact, effectively storing carbon and preventing its release into the atmosphere, unlike the fossil fuel industries.

As an ESG-focused company, we’re aligned on Earth Day in sharing our recertification in support of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 12 and 13, Responsible Consumption and Production and Climate Action.

Evoco is committed in mission to treat every day as Earth Day, as we are actively contributing to the circular economy and minimizing waste in the supply chain.

We collectively believe in disruptive innovation are proud to be at the cutting edge of producing scalable next-generation materials.  

*Biobased content in this product was calculated on a percent by weight basis and biobased carbon content was verified through ASTM laboratory and ISO standard testing based on avaliable data at time of publication.
