Great progress toward achieving our REset Plastic targets

From Schwarz Produktion and our retail divisions Lidl and Kaufland to the disposal and recycling activities headed by our PreZero environmental division, the Schwarz Group is involved in the entire circular economy. This calls for a great deal of responsibility, which we take very seriously. That is why we as the Schwarz Group decided to set ambitious targets for 2025 as part of our plastics strategy REset Plastic. We are pursuing these targets group-wide, never losing sight of our vision: Less Plastic – Closed Loops.
