Business Segments

Driving the circular economy – our business segments

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

Thus, packaging can be licensed by the dual system, collected from consumers by our own collection resources, and then separated into the corresponding fractions thanks to our company’s sorting facilities. We then turn plastics into recycled materials that can be made into new products again.

The Schwarz Group, which also includes retail companies Kaufland and Lidl, is one of the contributors to the mountains of packaging waste produced every year due to its size and presence around the globe. With the idea of an efficient loop, the group is thus becoming an active solutions provider and is facing up to its expanded producer responsibility. Packaging is transferred into a circular economy. This ensures that waste of resources along the value chain is reduced.
