One licence agreement – a full range of services

And that's not all: Our licence package, starting at the low annual fee of EUR 39, includes your packaging licence plus many other free add-on services, such as our volume download for LUCID, our online seal of quality and our resource protection certificate. All of which we view as an essential part of our service!

Free additional services

Our goal: to make sure you enjoy the best customer experience. With our volume download for LUCID, for example, or our Calculation Assistant. We take care of any obstacles – and it’s never been easier for you to act sustainably.

All-round coverage

As long as you are satisfied with us, you are legally compliant year after year with regard to the system participation obligation from the German Packaging Act with Lizenzero. We will reliably inform you about important deadlines or changes.

30 years of expertise

As an established dual system, we are living proof that the circular economy works. In our other divisions, we’re re-thinking the circular economy and taking it further – from recycled plastics to packaging optimisation.

Vertrauen und Transparenz

Ihr Feedback nehmen wir uns zu Herzen und nehmen es als Ausgangspunkt für fortlaufende Optimierungen.

Your contribution to a future worth living:
Why do we need packaging licensing?

What does the German Packaging Act seek to achieve? In a nutshell: Higher rates of recycling and an efficient closed-loop economy that meets the needs of the future – topics that affect us all as we seek to create a world worth living in for us and future generations.

What’s clear is that we cannot achieve these goals unless we work together: by fulfilling your product responsibility as required by the Packaging Act, you’re truly helping to protect the environment. Your licence fee is used directly to fund the waste management and recycling process we organise on your behalf, which ultimately works to protect key resources and cut harmful greenhouse gas emissions. This creates resource loops for handling materials such as paper, plastics, ferrous metals, aluminium or glass and real teamwork that literally pays its way. THANK YOU!

Work out packaging weights easily with our Calculation Assistant!

Not sure how to work out the total weight of packaging that you distribute on the market every year? No problem: we’re here to help! All you need to do is to pick the matching packaging type from the various standard packaging types. Then estimate the total number of packaging items required based on the product quantities you will probably sell in one year. The rest is handled by our Calculation Assistant, which uses the details you enter to calculate the estimated total weight of your packaging.

Choose your packaging type:

    Here you can see how many kilograms of primary raw materials you save with your packaging licensing and its associated recycling. To clearly illustrate the volume saved, we also use a diagram containing the corresponding number of apples.

    The calculated values are based on an annual study from the prestigious Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety and Energy Technology (UMSICHT).

    We state the volume of primary raw materials saved and greenhouse gas emissions reduced by your company’s partnership with Interseroh on your personal resource protection certificate.

What our customers say

Philipp Rodemann - Managing Director
FAIRFITTERS


Everything was just right for us with Lizenzero: From the price-performance ratio to the positive customer reviews to the easy handling through the calculator.

Cathrin Tach - Managing Director
Pappsalon


We are a small company, so we can't make a doctoral thesis out of the Packaging Act. With Lizenzero we have landed a stroke of luck - manageable and the licensing does not require more time than absolutely necessary.

Anja Rausch - Business Development Manager
Pick-a-Pea Bio Food


What we like about Lizenzero, apart from the appealing structure of the website, is the simple handling of registering packages. It saves us a lot of time and is cost-efficient. The fact that we have found a partner from the region in Lizenzero makes us even happier!

Christian Koch - Owner
BLUMEN-KOCH BERLIN


As florists, we surround ourselves with beautiful things every day - the appealing presentation of Lizenzero corresponds to this one to one. The fact that the store also keeps the office catie effort as narrow as possible and nice and simple, then gave the final tipping point for Lizenzero.

Katrin Lange - Owner
Naturzwerge Kidswear


Thanks to Lizenzero packaging licensing was very easy. With the self-explanatory documentation of how to license I was guided very quickly and easily through each step. All in all it took me only 10 minutes to complete the process and register my shop. Terrific!

Nico Meisner - Managing Director
Buster Surfboards


We can recommend Lizenzero without reservation. We have looked at several providers. We chose Lizenzero because they make it easiest for customers to see through the packagingG and the signup / registration on the website is very simple and fast.

Peitz -
Managing Director

Holzspielzeug Peitz


Interseroh has given me all the information I need about packaging licensing. The company’s long experience speaks for itself, and I can be sure that Interseroh will help me to fulfil my obligations from the German Packaging Ordinance and the new German Packaging Act. And I can also get everything done easily online!

Beatrice Rittelmeyer - Managing Director
Leithner's Shop


I have only a limited amount of time and cannot afford to spend day after day working out my packaging licensing. At Lizenzero, I was guided step-by-step through the registration procedure. Registration is completed in just a few clicks. And the price is very fair, too. The peace of mind from knowing my packaging is licensed means I can focus once again on my customers.
