A NEW ENVIRONMENTAL LABEL TO NEUTRALIZE
Control Union and Zero Plastic Oceans are launching a new component to their Ocean Bound Plastic (OBP) certification program. Initially designed to encourage the recycling of OBP, this program has been reinforced by the introduction of a label promoting the collection and proper disposal of nonrecyclable OBP. Two certification subprograms are now available: the “Recyclable Ocean Bound Plastic Certification” and the new “Ocean Bound Plastic Neutrality Certification.”
Finotrol Oy and Control Union have agreed on an acquisition in which the entire share capital of Finotrol Oy have been transferred to Control Union. The acquisition will not cause any changes to the certification services previously offered by Finotrol Oy, but it will enable the provision of completely new, even more extensive certification services both in Scandinavia and the Baltic region.
