Spring reception at the Reclay Group office in Germany’s capital

13 March 2014

The Reclay Group's first spring reception at its Berlin office enjoyed brilliant sunshine and spring-like temperatures. Numerous prominent guests accepted the Group's invitation to the first Parliamentary Evening in its Berlin office, including not only the Chilean ambassador and representatives of the diplomatic corps, but also Parliamentary State Secretary Peter Bleser and numerous members of the German Bundestag, particularly from the Environmental and Economic Affairs Committee. In addition, the event also welcomed numerous representatives of associations and the media, as well as partners of the Reclay Group.

In his words of welcome, Raffael A. Fruscio, shareholder of the Reclay Group, also offered a warning about hasty decisions with regard to the ongoing political discussions. He made reference to the achievements of the private waste management sector and talked about the successful international expansion of the Reclay Group. Keynote speeches by two guests of honour, former Federal Environment Minister Prof. Dr. Dr. Klaus Töpfer and former State Secretary Clemens Stroetmann, also contributed to the success of the evening. Both Töpfer and Stroetmann played a major role in the development of the environmental and waste disposal management sector in Germany. In the early 1990s they joined forces to call for increased recycling, overcoming considerable resistance in both the political and business spheres in order to pave the way for private closed substance cycle waste management.

The 'Forefathers of the German Packaging Ordinance' used their speeches to highlight Germany's pioneering role in the field of return systems and recycling, as well as the recognition this has brought Germany from around the world. At the same time, they also made it clear that in light of increasing resource scarcity and Germany's reliance on imports, it would not do to carelessly put at risk the well-functioning system that has demonstrated its success over the years.

Once the official part of the evening had concluded, guests enjoyed good food and drink while engaging in a lively exchange, continuing their interesting discussions and exploration of topics important to the future until late in the evening.
