sustainability & our mission
Our technologies provide solutions that help shift our world from a linear to a circular economy, and transition to a low-carbon future.
Working with our customers, we are creating fully circular models where plastics can be used and recycled again and again.
Agilyx sustainability goals
During 2021, Agilyx announced sustainability goals in three critical goal areas: circular/ environmental, climate and societal.
goal 1: circular / environmental
As of December 2021, we projected that its business development pipeline is anticipated to reach 500-600 tons per day in operation by 2025-26.
Progress:Due to a growing member base, Cyclyx has increased our volume target from 300,000 to 650,000 – 900,000 tons of post-use plastic diverted from landfill annually by 2025 / 2026.
goal 2: climate
Publish a climate change strategy that includes:
- Future impact of climate change on our business
- Strategies and actions to mitigate climate-related impacts of our technology
- Strategies and actions to support transition to a low carbon economy
Progress:We’re on track to publish a climate strategy by year-end 2022.
goal 3: societal
