Summary of the pledge: 

The use of recycled plastic is an important part of Kärcher's sustainability policy. One of our worldwide Kärcher sustainability target is to increase the usage of recycling plastics by 400% until 2020.  We are using production waste from our plastics processing for our products (Post Industrial). We used recycled plastics generated from old car battery housings for our products (Post Consumer). We accept the use of recycled plastics by our suppliers, e.g. recycled cable material for the production of wheels. 
 
Kärcher therefore supports the aim of the pledging campaign and will push forward the use of recycled plastics in Kärcher products. For example through the usage of several 100 tons/year of ECO-PA (recycled material from airbag production) for the production of Kärcher-accessories.
