Why Léko?



Satisfied customers

Léko is an eco-organization approved by the French government in charge of managing on behalf of companies that produce or import packaged products on French territory, their Extended Producer Responsibility for the management of household packaging. As such, Léko is authorized to collect eco-taxes from these companies, called "Producers", in proportion to the quantities of packaging placed on the French market each year (article L541-10 of the Environment Code).

The sums collected by Léko contribute to the financing of prevention, collection, sorting, reuse and recycling of this packaging.


Léko is a fully committed player in the circular economy, serving the household packaging sector in France and abroad.

Léko revisits the offer and stimulates the activity of the sector with the ambition to :

  • Contribute to reducing the amount of packaging put on the market through reuse and eco-design
  • Simplify processes and take responsibility for the life cycle management of their packaging by the companies that place it on the market
  • Supporting citizens in their sorting gesture and the adoption of a responsible and more environmentally friendly consumption mode
  • Support communities in their efforts to collect, sort and recycle packaging waste
  • Promote the emergence of innovative solutions to reduce the environmental impact of the packaging industry


If you represent a company that manufactures or imports packaged products on the French market for the general public, you are a " marketer " also called "Producer " and this is true regardless of the number of products you sell.

To fulfill your obligations as a "marketer" or "producer" you can either develop your own individual system and take care of the end-of-life treatment of all your products' packaging by yourself, or, more simply, you can delegate your responsibility as a "Producer" by joining a state-approved eco-organization like Léko.

We also work with managers who act as intermediaries between the eco-organizations and the producers who entrust them with the task of bringing them into compliance on French territory. We therefore have the tools and skills to manage the compliance of numerous producers simultaneously.

Packaging for take-away food services, bulk sales in stores and overpackaging for distance selling are also covered by the regulations on Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR).

When you join Léko you will receive a few days later your Unique Identification Number (IDU) generated by Ademe proving your compliance with the EPR of household packaging in the eyes of the French state. You will also receive the files of sorting instructions that must be applied to your household packaging.

Léko was born out of the RAAN Group 's desire to deploy its activities as an approved eco-organization for the packaging sector and as a consultant in the field of Producer Responsibility (PR) throughout the world.

The RAAN Group, to which Léko belongs, operates eco-organizations in France, Germany, Slovakia, Austria, the Czech Republic, Canada and Finland, and is planning further developments in Europe and across the Atlantic...

The subsidiary RecycleMe which specializes in consulting for companies and institutions, operates as a consulting firm in over ten countries.

Léko offers a wide range of services for producers to help them manage their obligations in France and abroad. French producers can thus benefit from the services of the Reclay group group for their international activities and vice versa; companies that import their products into the French market can benefit from an efficient relay of advice for their regulatory compliance on French territory.
