Benefits of recycling packaging

The recycling of packaging offers considerable environmental benefits in terms of saving raw materials, energy and water and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This activity also contributes to our country’s economic and social development by generating jobs and creating an industrial infrastructure.

Since 1998, the year when Ecoembes started its activity and the first yellow and blue containers appeared in Spain, we have managed to recycle a total of 19.3 million tons of packaging. The recycling of containers is not only a positive for the environment, but it is also an economic and social opportunity. In fact, Ecoembes’s activity has already generated 42,600 jobs in Spain, over 9,400 of them direct.

All this, and significant environmental benefits as well.
