There Is No Such Thing as Waste – Just Material in the Wrong Place
Every year, March 18 marks Global Recycling Day. The reuse of materials also has a high priority at Continental.
Circular economy is more than recycling
The recycling model commonly used today is important, but is only a first step in the right direction. Because pure recycling can often be applied only in limited repetition cycles without causing a loss of quality in the material, it still falls short of being sustainable in the long term. That is why we at Continental are going one step further and focusing on circular economy.
