Ecofolio

 

The agreement of ACR+ member Ecofolio has been renewed for the third time by the French government, in a decree published in the Journal Officiel on 29 December 2016. This agreement, which started on 1 January 2017 until 31 December 2022 is the acknowledgment of the progresses made for already 10 years and a new step to improve even more paper recycling in France. To reply to the requirement of this new agreement, in particular regarding the new objective of 65% of paper recycled in 2022 and the raise of support to recycling, Ecofolio and its clients will dedicate over 500 million euros between 2017 and 2022 for the public authorities and the sector, that is twice more than the two previous agreements put together. Starting from 2017 Ecofolio will :

  • Develop the economic and environmental performance of the collection, sorting and recovery system;
  • Transformed old papers into a quality a quantity resource with a price signal for the industrial using them
  • Develop an innovation policy of R&S and strategic studies for the sector
  • Promote more than ever eco-conception, to reduce recycling costs and improve the quality of the secondary raw material
  • Boost collaboration in the policy field
  • Make progresses towards a generalisation of sorting to reach, with all partners, the objective of 65% recycling in 2022

Ecofolio also aims to improve the offer and the qualities of the services offered to public authorities and businesses, and enhance the effects of the messages targeting the general public.
