22 Dec 2022

To enhance the efficiency of its producer responsibility system, AS CleanR Grupa, a concern comprising Latvia’s leading companies in the environmental services sector, has acquired SIA Zaļā josta, a producer responsibility system provider. With the acquisition of a majority stake in SIA Zaļā josta, the Group consolidates the producer responsibility system provider SIA Eko rija. From now on, Eko rija’s clients will be served by one company operating under the single Zaļā josta trademark.

In line with its development strategy, CleanR Grupa has concluded a deal on acquisition of a majority stake in SIA Zaļā josta. Guntars Levics, Member of the Board at CleanR Grupa, informs that back in April 2022 the Group had already received a go-ahead from the Competition Council on purchasing a 30% stake in SIA Zaļā josta, and now—with the acquisition of a majority stake—the deal has been brought to a close.

With this deal, the Group’s subsidiary company Eko rija has been incorporated into the company structure of Zaļā jostaEko rija offers used packaging management services, and it became a producer responsibility system provider in 2017. Guntars Levics emphasizes that this deal will allow the Group to streamline its producer responsibility system, which will facilitate implementation of the Latvian and European Green Deal aims.


Guntars Levics, Member of the Board at CleanR Grupa: “In its five years of operation, Eko rija has been a stable and reliable business partner to its clients, successfully carrying out the functions of a packaging producer responsibility system, according to the Latvian and European Green Deal aims.  On the other hand, Zaļā josta in its 20 years in business has earned trust from its clients and business partners, as well as developed efficient environmental education programs, which form an essential part of the used packaging management system. The combination of best practices from both companies in one powerful brand will benefit the overall development of the industry and raise awareness in society on environmental protection.”

Eko rija’s clients have been duly notified about the deal.
