Global Commitment of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation
For us, thinking holistically also means looking beyond the boundaries of our own corporate group. Consequently, we as the Schwarz Group are also a member of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, a globally active, non-profit organization, with a vision to achieve a functioning circular economy. As part of our membership, we were the first retail company in Germany to sign the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment, and thus committed ourselves as early as 2018 to global objectives for building a circular economy for plastics.
As part of a global network, we determined our Group-wide plastics strategy to tackle the challenges of the New Plastics Economy together and develop new innovative strategies and solutions in cooperation with our partners. As a pioneer in retail, we aspire to rethink the plastics and recycling industry and, with our commitment along the entire value chain, make a contribution to the conservation of resources and the environment.
