Sustainability

Already thinking of tomorrow today

Protecting the climate and species diversity; retaining habitats and landscapes; preserving economic resources – sustainable and responsible actions are our highest objective. As an economic company, all aspects of sustainability count for us; ecological, economic and social. 

With the return of used packaging and plastics and the subsequent recycling, we would like to make a contribution towards making our world worth living in in the future, too, from which we all and the generations to follow will profit.

Founded by the industry for the industry, commerce and agriculture, the RIGK Team develops and realises innovative recovery systems and recycling solutions. Here we take on the legal obligations for producers and packers/fillers reliably and worldwide – and also organise and promote voluntary recovery initiatives. And: our operations for the sustainable handling of valuable resources extend over the Germany’s borders into the whole world with our successful foreign subsidiaries and consultation projects.

Discover the numerous existing aspects of plastic recycling and out diverse commitments in terms of sustainability for a future worth living!
