The model's efficacy is guaranteed

Discover the foundations of our dedication

At Ecoembes, we do more than just make sure that the environmental regulations is followed. We aim to make sure that the system we oversee continues to evolve sustainably while providing people, businesses, and other stakeholders with a top-notch, open, cutting-edge service.

To achieve this goal, we focus on these 3 pillars:



Non-compliance mechanisms

The importance of agreements as a mechanism

The careful packaging collection entails a cost to Local Authorities. In order to pay for it, we create agreements that guarantee this collection is carried out in the most effective manner at the least expensive in terms of the economy, society, and the environment.

Currently, we have more than 100 agreements in place, which cover more than 99.8% of Spain's population.

Innovation as a key factor

To improve our management model and adapt to changes in packaging and waste, we encourage and use technological advancements across the whole packaging cycle.

Additionally, we keep an open and innovative mindset at all organisational levels, adopting environmental and technical advancements that enhance our internal and external operations.

Our defences against non-compliance

At Ecoembes, we do more than just make sure that the environmental regulations are followed. We have internal systems in place to locate and identify companies that do not comply with the regulations.

We are dedicated to the companies that are Ecoembes members, tracking and periodically reporting to the Autonomous Communities all those that do not comply with environmental regulations and are not managing their packaging through a SCRAP.

We use 4 systems to ensure detection and contact with companies that are not in compliance:

  1. Product packaging at all kinds of places of sale is verified, including the online channel.

  2. Analysis of company databases (Commercial Registry) in sectors more likely to be non-compliant throughout Spain.

  3. Monitoring the businesses that leave the SCRAP each year to identify those that do so unjustifiably or because they have broken their contractual responsibilities (failure to submit packaging declarations, non-payment, etc.).

  4. Checks through the Packaging Section of the Registry of Product Producers of the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge
