The legally compliant packaging license for commercial and industrial companies

The German Packaging Ordinance (VerpackV) lays down the correct methodology for handling commercial and industrial packages. With a packaging license for commercial and industrial packages, we ensure legally compliant, reliable processing of disposal, and documentation on the recycling of used packages from commercial and industrial companies.

What are commercial and industrial packages?

The German Packaging Ordinance defines different forms of package. You can license all these different packaging forms with Der Grüne Punkt. By differentiation of the packaging license in our service portfolio, we take into due account the disparate framework conditions entailed by the different types of package defined in the German Packaging Ordinance. Final distributors of sales packaging not arising at the private final consumer shall be obligated to accept free of charge used and emptied sales packaging returned by the final consumer at or in the immediate vicinity of the place of actual transfer and to consign it to recovery (§ 7 Packaging Ordinance). Der Grüne Punkt can support you in complying with your obligations entailed by the provisions of the German Packaging Ordinance for dealing with used commercial and industrial packages.
