Der Grüne Punkt (The Green Dot) was founded in 1990 and is a leading provider of take-back systems in Germany. It offers companies a sustainable way to deal with waste and provides a nationwide collection of used packaging to recover raw materials for the economic cycle.

The new corporate headquarters in Cologne is an expression of their corporate philosophy, with sustainability and ecological solutions at the forefront throughout the process. The new 5,400 square meter workspace was designed by architects from the Pütz Group and provides employees with modern and more diverse environments for new ways of working and a range of workspaces...

"Der Grüne Punkt stands for circular economy and sustainability.
