Evoco’s CEO and Co-Founder, Jason Robinson, is a Clean50 Award Recipient for 2024

Toronto, Canada, Sept. 29, 2023 – Evoco, a global innovation company founded to defossilize the material value chain, announced today that its Co-Founder and CEO Jason Robinson has been recognized as a 2024 Clean50 Honouree 

“Canada’s Clean50 Awards are announced annually by Delta Management Group and the Clean50 organization to recognize those 50 individuals who have done the most to advance the cause of sustainability and clean capitalism in Canada over the past 2 years,” said Gavin Pitchford, Delta Management Group CEO.

“This national environmental recognition is a testament to our team’s trailblazing efforts and dedication in creating and scaling innovative material solutions with measurable and verifiable impact” said Jason Robinson. “And as a strong proponent of cross-sectorial collaboration, I value this unique opportunity to engage with other sustainability leaders from all sectors of the Canadian economy.”

As a disruptive pioneer in the industry with 20 years of experience in renewable and cleantech technologies, Jason is focused on creating better-performing, responsible, and ecological products. His expertise in engineering and science has prepared him to charter this new territory and challenge the status quo every step of the way.

Evoco is committed to authentic sustainability, helping numerous consumer brands de-fossilize their supply chains by providing them with plant-based material solutions, such as FATES™, its eco-foam. Now commercialized, FATES cuts carbon emissions by up to 70% and minimizes the product’s end-of-life impact through its advanced detoxifying properties.

Starting in footwear first with global brand partners such as shoe giant VANS, the switch to FATES™ resulted in a reduction of over 1.4 KT CO2e greenhouse gas emissions so far.

At a time when transparency means everything, peeling back on what it means to be green is a driving force for Evoco’s Co-Founder and CEO, Jason Robinson.

To combat greenwashing, Evoco’s 70 to 80% plant-based materials are third-party certified by USDA and GreenCircle, as well as Vegan certified, as there are no animal-derived products.
Moving into 2024, Evoco will continue to innovate through plant-based materials that reduce carbon emissions without compromising performance, revolutionizing the materials used in the products we walk in, sleep in, and drive in.
