Driving the circular economy – our business units

We at PreZero have dedicated ourselves to the goal of closing loops. We have already taken a large step towards this goal by establishing the disposal and recycling company PreZero within the Schwarz Group and establishing our own dual system.

Packaging can be licensed under the dual system, collected from consumers by our own collection resources, and then separated into the corresponding fractions using our company’s sorting facilities. In the next step we turn plastics into recycled materials that can once again be reused in new products.

The Schwarz Group, which also includes the retail companies Kaufland and Lidl, is one of the contributors to the mountains of packaging waste produced every year due to its size and global presence. The concept of an efficient loop allows the group to become an active provider of solutions who faces up to its expanded producer responsibility. Packaging is transferred into a circular economy, ensuring that waste of resources along the value chain is reduced.
