Biodegradable Products Institute

What does your business/organization do?

We're North America's leading organization for compostability, representing hundreds of organizations across the compost supply chain

Tell us about your business/organization's recycling/sustainability practices.

For over 20 years, the BPI Certification Mark has been the defining symbol of compostability for audiences across the value chain. The BPI Certification program is a third-party verification of ASTM standards for compostable products in North America, and the starting point for every company wishing to make compostability claims on products and packaging.

How would you describe your work culture?

We aspire to live our values and promote a truly healthy work environment

What motivates your employees to meet your recycling/sustainability goals?

I suppose, as a mission-based organization, our motivation is largely intrinsic. We want to make the world a better place!

If your business or organization was an animal, which one would it be and why?

Maybe a community of soil microbes or mycelium working together to break down organic waste into a healthy soil amendment?
