Worldwide, fifteen tonnes of packaging waste is produced every second. We see this waste as a valuable resource because with our recycling and material management solutions, we can contribute to a better quality of life – today and for the generations to come. As an international expert for recycling management, we focus on three main activities. We see recycling in its entirety and advise companies, governments and institutions along the entire value chain on how to recover resources from waste. All over the world, we dedicate our knowledge and experience to the setup of environment management and recycling systems. We also specialize in stewardship reporting, a service designed to help companies meet their statutory recycling obligations.
