The benefits of an AGVU membership

For over 30 years, AGVU has been committed to providing incentives that lead to more recycling and more use of recycled materials or renewable raw materials in packaging. Through our members, our association represents the entire value chain: from the packaging industry, the consumer goods industry and the retail to dual systems, disposal companies and recyclers. We are convinced: together we can close the loop.
