Yes, we care!
Our promise for proactive action as an innovation leader
We as Brückner Group want to take responsibility! This is why we launched the initiative "Yes, we care". This project is as much an acknowledgement to our own responsibilities in the matter of plastics and sustainability, as well as a promise to the employees in all the Brückner Group companies. Together we will act, develop visions, boost innovations and find solutions.
"Reduce - Reuse - Recyle" should not remain a buzzword for us, but be filled with life.
As a technology and market leader in the most diverse areas of the plastics and packaging industry, we have the opportunity to contribute our vision of the future and our engineering spirit for more sustainability.
More about the organisations
ASASE has an impressive comprehensive approach: Women collect plastic waste in and around Ghana’s capital Accra, and produce regranulate in their own small “factories”. This is then sold to the local plastic recycler “Nelplast”, who use it to make paving stones or roof tiles. This is recycling and circular economy at its finest as it shows how the excessive amount of plastic rubbish can be sensibly recycled.
The project also makes it possible for women in the region to earn a secure and sustainable income for themselves and their families.
One Earth – One Ocean
Concentration on waters and coastal protection
One Earth – One Ocean is an environmental organisation that concentrates on waters and coastal protection. They have set the target of developing and implementing a concept which will free waters worldwide from not only plastic, but also oil and other pollutants. In the multi-step concept “marine litter cleanup”, specialist ships will collect the plastic waste and recycle it, or convert it back into oil. 800 litres of oil can be recovered from one tonne of sorted plastic waste.
One Earth – One Ocean has been the official partner of the UN environmental campaign #CleanSeas. The organisation was nominated for the Ocean Tribute Award last year for the most innovative and sustainable concepts in marine conservation.
