Eco-Emballages

Eco-Emballages pilots the French scheme to sort and recycle household packaging waste set up in compliance with Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) principle. Eco-Emballages is a private company, invested with a general interest mission serving the consumer/citizen and as such, is accredited by the State. Its objective is to enable member companies to fulfil their EPR obligations and to ensure an environmentally- and socially-efficient implementation of the scheme at an optimal cost. The Green Dot therefore guarantees citizens the commitment of companies to limit the environmental impact of packaging. As of today, 67% of household packaging waste is recycled in France thanks to the daily involvement of millions of French people. In order to achieve the target of a 75% recycling rate in a near future, Eco-Emballages works from upstream to downstream, on eco-design and on increasing recycling, by bringing together all stakeholders – companies, local authorities, associations and recycling companies.
