In today's world, the sustainable handling of increasingly scarce resources is more important than ever. As an international environmental service provider that is primarily active in waste and recycling management, we face this challenge on a daily basis because we see ourselves as part of society and we, as experts, take responsibility for an important concern of society: avoiding waste and valuing recyclable materials.
We are currently not only experiencing climate change at first hand, but also the risk of dependence on limited resources. Part of the solution is the recycling, use and reuse of recyclable materials. As waste and recycling managers, we play a key role here.

Strengthening sustainable fan culture – Zero Waste partnership with TSG Hoffenheim
PreZero supports the national soccer club TSG Hoffenheim (TSG) in the area of resource-conserving waste management. However, the sustainability cooperation goes far beyond sponsoring the TSG soccer stadium and renaming it to the “PreZero Arena”. As an official sustainability partner, we have supported the club on its way to becoming the first, independently certified zero-waste stadium in the Bundesliga. This means that almost all waste (at least 85% according to DIN SPEC 91436) that arises in the stadium is to be treated as recyclable materials and positively recycled - i.e. reused, recycled, composted and fermented. PreZero supports and advises TSG in this context on environmentally relevant topics.
Active climate protection
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time. We are aware of this social obligation and have therefore joined the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) as a company of the Schwarz Group to address this challenge.
After preparing and analyzing the carbon footprint, the Schwarz Group companies jointly defined climate protection goals according to the SBTi methodology and backed them up with measures for reducing, avoiding or offsetting CO2 emissions in operations and in the supply chain. Our common goal: Overall, the companies of the Schwarz Group will reduce their operational greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 1 and 2) by 55% by 2030, compared to 2019. As a central measure, we will switch to green electricity¹ in all PreZero national companies by the end of fiscal year 2022.
¹Except for purchase contracts, which we cannot influence, such as for individual rental properties with electricity purchase commitments.
