The Schwarz Group is constantly looking for opportunities to cooperate with organizations working to free the environment of plastic waste. There are 700 pieces of plastic in the oceans for each person in the world, but the problem of durable plastics goes much further.
The Schwarz Group tests ideas that tackle the removal of plastic from rivers, lakes or land. Wherever an ecosystem is suffering from the thoughtless disposal of plastic, appropriate disposal measures should be taken.
We support the removal of plastic waste from the environment.
IN THE WRONG PLACE
The company values local and global projects that are holistically conceived to ensure the collected materials find a sustainable and purposeful use. Ultimately, waste is just reusable material in the wrong place. The Schwarz Group doesn’t just offer financial support, but also makes its expertise available to project partners.

By participating in “Project STOP”, the Schwarz Group supports a project that prevents plastic waste from entering the oceans. Founded in 2017, the initiative develops effective recycling management systems together with the affected cities and provides money and expertise to realize solutions.
The first project was launched in April 2018 in Muncar, a coastal region in Indonesia, and two further partnerships are planned for the end of 2019. In addition to the environmental gains, the local population also benefits from the resulting job creation.
To assess the technical feasibility and potential of the recycling processes, there is intensive cooperation with the REcycle and REdesign task groups. Their expertise is essential for feasibility studies.
