ABOUT THIS HYBRID SEMINAR:

The Schwarz Group based in Germany, which includes the retail companies Kaufland and Lidl, is the largest retail company in Europe. The company operates around 12,500 stores and markets in more than 30 countries. As one of the biggest distributors of packaging, the Schwarz Group takes over responsibility, because whoever puts plastic into circulation has the responsibility for its recycling.


PreZero is the international environmental division of the Schwarz Group that is engaged in recovery and recycling management. Together with its stakeholders, PreZero connects economy with ecology and supports a successful and sustainable development with the key goal to close loops. With its three business units Dual, Recovery and Recycling, PreZero itself covers key stages along the value chain.


PreZero is committed to a clean future where an efficient and fully closed recycling loop protects our environment and creates sustainable value. The aspiration is to preserve resources and reduce the amount of non-reusable waste to zero – PreZero.


PreZero pursues the idea of closed loops: From fully recyclable products through trade and disposal to sustainable recycling and reprocessing into new products. By thinking ahead, the company considers which concepts can solve the problems of tomorrow's customers. Therefore, PreZero also consistently invests in modern technologies and is constantly striving to innovate.


Bjoern Lindner, Managing Director of Schwarz Asia Pacific Sourcing Ltd., and Matthias Eder, Press Spokesman PreZero, explore this innovative spirit that has led to the development of numerous sustainable solutions: Recycled products such as paper from old cardboard within the Schwarz Group, household goods sold at Lidl made from recycled plastic by PreZero, or biogas from food waste are sustainable outcomes resulting from increased efficiency.


Where others see waste, PreZero sees value!
