The Schwarz Group participates in the initiative launched by Borealis in 2017.

According to Euwid, the in food trade leading Schwarz Group, which includes the chains Lidl and Kaufland, is a new partner in the "Stop Ocean Plastics" project. In 2017, polyolefin manufacturer Borealis and consulting and investment company System IQ launched the project at the 2018 Our Ocean Conference in Bali. In cooperation with city governments, the project aims to establish effective recycling systems in regions without a functioning waste management system. Initially, the participants will concentrate on regions in Southeast Asia, where the pollution of the oceans by plastics is particularly high. In addition to the initiators, the current partners of Stop Ocean Plastics are the Norwegian government, Nova Chemicals, Borouge and Veolia and, more recently, the food corporation Nestlé. According to the Schwarz Group, which has now joined the group, the partnership is part of the group-wide "Reset Plastic" strategy.
