Question

Has the brand achieved 99,5% global recycling and reusing rate for its solid waste?

  • Dutch version: Is afgelopen jaar teminste 99,5% van het afval van het merk (bedrijf) hergebruikt of gerecycled?
  • German version: Hat der Markenhersteller fine Rezyklierungs- oder Wiederverwertungsrate von mindestens 99,5% für den Feststoffabfall der eigenen Produktion erreicht?

Reference

The recycling and / or reuse rate (materially, but not thermal) should be based on a solid waste balance which covers the following types of waste:

- recycable waste materials (i.e. labels, glas, paletts, paper, polystrene, construction waste),
- commercial waste similar to household waste (i.e. residual waste, labels),
- waste which may be composted (i.e. diatomaceous earth, filter aids),
- hazardous waste (i.e. detergent solution, freezing agents, used chemicals, end-of-life tyres).
