Valipac was created in 1997 by Belgian industry to provide a collective response to the extended producer responsibility for industrial packaging. Their basic mission is to achieve the recycling rates imposed on industry for industrial packaging placed on the Belgian market. This mission has been successfully fulfilled, as the organisation now demonstrates an overall recycling rate of 91.6%.

With 25 years of experience, Valipac is the first EPR organisation for industrial packaging in Europe. And the results are there: with 91.6%, the recycling rates of Belgian industrial packaging far exceed the European targets. And this at an average cost of €10.6 per tonne for Belgian industry.

In order to achieve circularity of industrial packaging, Valipac acts on 4 pillars: encouraging companies to use circular packaging, ensuring the traceability of industrial packaging waste and guaranteeing its effective recycling, stimulating local recycling and finally encouraging more selective collection of industrial packaging in companies.
