Vestergaard is focused on creating a positive impact on the populations we serve and on the environment through our products and business practices.

Sustainability

Our tools aim to improve the health of at-risk populations so people can focus on living their lives, supporting their families and contributing to society. But it’s not just about our products. We are also focused on the direct and indirect impacts our operations have on the environment. At Vestergaard, we continue to challenge ourselves through ever-greater commitments to responsible and sustainable practices.

Recycled bednets

Combatting the plastic problem

As an industry, we distribute over 100,000 tons of plastic polymer-based long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) to the world each year. But the disposal of these nets at the end of their life cycle presents an environmental challenge.

Another issue donor organisations face is the raw material cost of polymer, which is constantly oscillating.

We believe recycling can reduce the environmental impact of bednets and ensure they can be made cost effectively.

Vestergaard’s exploration of innovative solutions ranging from the use of biodegradable plastics to the recycling and upcycling of polyester materials is ongoing.
