With the EU’s objective of making all plastic recyclable and reusable by 2030, and the new requirements for integrating the recycled content in beverage bottles, companies strive to transition from linear towards a circular economy - multiplying the number of environmental claims on plastic packaging.

In addition to the legislative pressure, the brand owners and retailers are faced with consumers looking for products with lower environmental impact. All this prompts the need for reliable certification and labelling of environmental claims to prove sustainability and eliminate greenwashing based on void declarations used purely as a marketing tool without reducing the impact on the environment.

RecyClass Certifications are voluntary audit schemes, that demonstrate the degree of recyclability of plastic packaging and recycled content of plastics used in products. Certification schemes are owned by Plastics Recyclers Europe, managed by RecyClass and issued by third-party recognised Certification Bodies.
