KAMLOOPS, BRITISH COLUMBIA – March 06, 2023 – Progressive Planet (TSXV: PLAN) (OTCQB: ASHXF) (“Progressive Planet”, “PLAN”, or the “Company”), a Canadian company focused on natural CleanTech innovations from its volcanic fields in southern British Columbia, has commissioned Catalytico — ideas in motion (“Catalytico”) to accelerate its status as a leader in CleanTech solutions for the cement, agricultural, waste and animal care sectors.

Catalytico, founded in 2010 by Miro Cernetig, the award-winning journalist and documentary filmmaker, has a proven history of building company brands. Catalytico has been involved with impact projects in CleanTech, real estate development, transportation, aviation, pharma, resource development and more.

“We are delighted to have Catalytico on board as our brand agency,” said Steve Harpur, CEO of Progressive Planet. “Miro’s unique experience in bespoke storytelling, branding and his ability to connect to people in business, government and media will enhance how we communicate our value. After one site visit to see our manufacturing facilities and our C-Quester Center of Sustainable Innovation, he advised me we were not projecting to the world just how much Progressive Planet was doing in CleanTech innovations.”

As part of the re-branding, Progressive Planet has re-launched its website with a focus on both its commercial products and the innovations it creates to bring natural, sustainable products to market designed to reduce the world’s carbon footprint and restore ecosystems.

“We are thrilled to be working with Progressive Planet,” said Miro Cernetig, founder of Catalytico. “Progressive Planet’s mission-driven leadership and team, and their innovative approach to delivering natural every-day products and CleanTech innovation, aligns with my own mission to work with brands making a positive impact on our world.”

Under the new brand strategy, the company will be accentuating its innovation arm, The C-Quester Center of Sustainable Innovation, and the intellectual property it creates. It is currently advancing more than six new innovative products in the cement, regenerative fertilizer, and animal care sectors. These innovations are derived from the use of the unique combination of volcanic ash and minerals harvested from Progressive Planet’s volcanic deposits situated around its Kamloops headquarters.

“With this new brand and website, we will focus attention on both our successful product lines and the Intellectual Property our scientific teams create at the C-Quester Center of Sustainable Innovation,” said Ian Grant, COO. “Thanks to our scientific teams, and the natural volcanic deposits we have acquired, at Progressive Planet ‘We really do CleanTech, naturally.’ ”
