Léko is a Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) approved by the French State in charge of managing the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) for household packaging on behalf of companies that produce or import packaged products on French territory.
As such, Léko is authorized to collect eco-contribution from these companies called « Producers » in proportion to the quantities of packaging placed on the French market each year (article L541 of the Environmental Code).
The funds collected by Léko finance prevention, collection, sorting and recycling of this packaging.
If you represent a company that manufactures or imports packaged products on the French market for the general public, you are a « Producer », regardless of the number of products you sell.
Packaging for take-away, bulk sales in shops and overpackaging for distance selling are also covered by the regulation relating to Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR).
To fulfil your obligations, you can either develop your own individual system and take responsibility for the end-of-life treatment of all your packaging, or, more simply, you can delegate your responsibility as a « Producer » by joining a state-approved Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) such as Léko.
There is a single contract but three types of membership depending on the quantity of products put annually on the market. The quantity is expressed in CSUs (consumer sales unit). Please choose below the option that best suits your situation:
