Circular economy

ARA – a driving force for the circular economy

ARA started out as a packaging compliance scheme in 1993. Since then, we have expanded the range of our services in cooperation with our partners; today, the ARA service group is recognised internationally for the quality of its services.

State-of-the-art technology, many years of experience and comprehensive know-how are the reasons why we are leading pioneers and innovators in our field. We provide the environmentally and economically best solutions for the circular economy and for the preservation of natural resources. No matter if we’re talking about packaging, electrical and electronic equipment and batteries or commercial and manufacturing waste, our goal is always the same: maximising environmental benefits and minimising economic expenditure.

We are well aware that our success rests on people’s sense of responsibility – thanks to their commitment, the circular economy has become a powerful instrument for securing resources and protecting the climate. The importance of the circular economy for our future has also been underscored by the European Commission, which has named it one of the pillars of development over the next decades, alongside the energy transition to a low-carbon economy and the digitisation of industry.
