“More soon.In the short term, the best solution to limit global warming is to make carbon circular, not to extract new carbon from deep underground but to use and reuse the carbon that is already on the surface of the Earth.”
We joined the RCI because since many years we fundamentally believe that one of the solutions to climate change is renewable carbon. This is why, after three years of development, we launched the OK bio-based conformity mark in 2009, which is now part of one of the three pillars of the RCI. In addition, TÜV AUSTRIA has launched its own certification scheme for recycled content, OK recycled, covering a second pillar of the RCI project.
TÜV AUSTRIA Group is a leading independent Testing, Inspection and Certification company covering industry, energy, infrastructure, transportation, certification, training and digital services with +2.000 experts in +25 countries. From cybersecurity, robotics and IoT to pressure equipment inspections, industrial plant safety, materials testing and hygienics (air, soil, water, surfaces, rooms), TÜV AUSTRIA Group generates an annual turnover of 220 million euros.
On 1 December 2017, TÜV AUSTRIA Group integrated the OK compost & OK biobased conformity marks and certification activities into the newly founded subsidiary TÜV AUSTRIA Belgium.
