Licensing service for packaging

When we started out 30 years ago, we offered a packaging compliance service and organised the collection and recovery of packaging waste in Austria to take on all obligations our members had under the Austrian Packaging Ordinance. Our business has grown to include comprehensive packaging waste management and consultancy services.
