DSD’s Environmental Performance Report for 2008 published
Packaging recycling with the Green Dot saves substantial amounts of energy and greenhouse gases; the recovery rates achieved by Duales System Deutschland GmbH (DSD) have risen to new all-time highs – these are the major results of DSD’s Environmental Performance Report for 2008.
By recycling 2.6 million tons of used sales packaging, DSD saved 59 billion megajoules’ of primary energy in 2008. This amount of energy would suffice to supply one year’s worth of fuel for 1.9 million compact-size cars with an average annual mileage of 15,000 kilometres. At the same time, DSD prevented the emission of 1.4 million tons in carbon dioxide equivalents – as much as 630,000 of these cars would emit in an entire year.
