Landbell Group has joined the PREVENT Waste Alliance which aims to help developing and emerging countries transition towards a circular economy. The alliance was officially launched in May 2019 by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) in cooperation with Indonesia and Ghana, and consists of more than 30 organizations from business, science, civil society and public institutions.
Mainz, 1st August 2019. Landbell Group will primarily support the alliance with its experience in the collection and recycling of waste packaging and electronics, and the related cooperation with municipal organizations. Having contributed to the circular economy for more than 20 years, Landbell Group is very pleased to share this long-time knowledge with its partners in the alliance and in the developing and emerging countries.
“The development of a global circular economy is one of the most important tasks of our time,” explained Jan Patrick Schulz, CEO Landbell Group. “The PREVENT Waste Alliance follows this approach, and we are proud to be part of it and to bring our years of experience and investment in innovation and digitization. Together, we will work to increase collection and recycling targets and to reduce waste as much as possible.”
