We develop solutions for a cleaner world
A company founded in 2020, was born from the passion that its team has for nature and especially the relationship of a life, of its founding partner with the sea.
The knowledge and experience acquired over more than 20 years working in the development and management of production processes, with the most diverse raw materials and with the network acquired over these years, allow our team the ability to introduce eco-innovative and sustainable solutions to the market.
In our genesis is the determination to involve brands and companies in a greener, sustainable and circular world.
Eco-innovation is a business model that incorporates sustainability throughout all business operations based on life cycle thinking and in cooperation with partners across the value chain.
We strongly believe that sustainability is also an opportunity for any company to achieve a competitive advantage in its respective markets.
At the same time, we save wildlife and reduce the production of new plastic.
Acting for Ocean
THE MEKONG RIVER is the second river in Asia that contributes the most to ocean plastic pollution. In South-West Vietnam, where the Mekong Delta is located, IMPACT WORLD holds, in partnership with local companies, an end-of-life ropes and fishing net collection operation, which are introduced into recycling processes, giving rise to RPP and RPE pellets, which are then transformed into various plastic products.
The use of these raw materials directly contributes to reducing plastic pollution in one of the world’s most polluting rivers, while helping the fishing community to act consciously, preventing this waste from ending up at sea or in marine environments.

Acting for People
Vietnam is home to an astonishing 2,800 craft villages that include not just those that make handicrafts for tourists, but some that specialise in recycling all sorts of discarded plastic, including from waste streams.
These plastic craft villages use recycled or repurposed plastic materials to create their products, contributing to sustainable practices and reducing waste.
There are, however, serious health and environmental risks identified with some processes. The plastic is washed in water troughs with mechanical agitators and the wastewater containing fine chips of plastic is discharged into the village drains. From here it can enter the local waterways and impact on local drinking water supplies, irrigation and/or fish stocks.
Impact World, in collaboration with local partners, is acting to significantly reduced water pollution by capturing microplastic sludge and chemicals sediments before they enter the waterways, contributing to a significant improvement in the health of the local population.
