Plastic Footprint Reports
While carbon footprinting is becoming common practice across all industries, at Starboard we wanted to understand our environmental impact in another area as well: our plastic footprint.
Since 2017 we have been calculating our plastic use throughout our products. Starboard continuously strives to make the best boards in and for the world. The first step towards improvement is calculating and understanding. You can view our plastic footprint reports below:

Have You Heard About Our Offsetting Programs?
After calculating and understanding our carbon and plastic footprint, the next step is to improve our environmental impact. At Starboard we develop our products through R&D work, but we also offset our footprint through our two offset programs!
Carbon Offset Program
Starboard is completely transparent about its role as an industrial producer and we are taking responsibility for our carbon footprint.
