Green Dot

On November 2, 2001, CSR: Corporations Supporting Recycling and PRO EUROPE, the umbrella organization of "Green Dot" packaging recycling systems in Europe, concluded a license agreement for the use of the Green Dot trademark in Canada. Generally, the use of the trademark on packaging indicates that a financial contribution has been paid to a private-sector organization for the collection, sorting and recycling of packaging. In Canada, however, the trademark cannot be used at this time as a financing symbol. Rather, CSR will charge a licensing fee based on cost recovery. CSR assumes responsibility for ensuring that only authorized companies use the Green Dot on packaging. CSR will also grant sub-licenses to organizations if they express interest in this arrangement.
