The Green Dot

The Green DotThe Green Dot...

...or Der Grüne Punkt, is a symbol used in mainland Europe to fund systems for recycling packaging materials. In the UK it is not a recycling symbol at all but a trade-marked device requiring the payment of a licence fee. Many companies have universal packaging so that the Green Dot may be applied to their packaging to comply with the European requirements without realising that this use in the UK triggers a licence fee payable to the trade-mark holder. Synergy Compliance is licensed in the UK to provide this service to our members.
