Upon the Green Dot sign becoming widespread in EU member countries, the "Packaging Recovery Organization Europe - PRO Europe" was established in 1995 and the Green Dot became the official sign of the organization. The Green Dot has become an internationally reputable model contributing to the performance of industrial liability of the companies included in the system adopting the "polluter pays" principle.
