Our principles of operation
Availability of an efficient system for collecting packaging, worn out electrical equipment and environmentally harmful products for all residents of Latvia
The objective of the Latvijas Zaļais punkts
AS Latvijas Zaļais punkts (the Latvian Green Dot) was established on January 11, 2000 and it is the most experienced producer responsibility organisation in Latvia. Since its creation, Latvijas Zaļais punkts has taken care of the management of packaging waste. Since 2006, the Latvijas Zaļais punkts is also responsible for the management of worn out electrical equipment and goods harmful to the environment.
Latvia – country without waste.
Everything is sorted,
Everything is recycled,
Everything has its value.
The vision of the Latvijas Zaļais punkts
We do realise that waste is inevitable, but our aim consists in turning it to values, rather than letting it pile at waste landfills. We are for Latvia without waste landfills. We are for Latvia with segregated and recycled waste with new value added.
Inspire to do more while spending less.
The mission of the Latvijas Zaļais punkts
We are convinced that responsible and smart resource usage helps to save both companies and each inhabitant of Latvia. Spending less is not about stagnation, it is about development and higher standard of living. We are for smartness, responsibility and development.
