Percentage of products sold and their packaging materials that are reclaimed
We create less waste by using efficient packaging. Wherever possible, we deliver our products in large containers that we take back and reuse. For small containers, we use disposable packaging for logistics reasons. Symotion GmbH, our logistics services subsidiary, optimizes this packaging continuously in respect of both the economic and ecological implications and of product safety and occupational health and safety aspects. In 2014, we used 7,748.28 tons of packaging material globally. The recycling quota was 81.2 %.
