Vertix proactively participates in a circular economy that minimizes landfills, reduces pollution, and conserves natural resources. We believe that responsible plastics recycling plays a pivotal role in protecting the environment and mitigates adverse effects on our ecosystems and the world at large.

We're environmentally conscientious in all aspects of our business.

We want to live in a world where carbon emissions have been significantly reduced and circular economy principles have been embraced by everyone on a global scale. That goal informs all of our business decisions and our strategies for the future.
