About Close the Loop

Close the Loop (CtL) provides best-in-class sustainability solutions to help companies like yours enhance corporate social responsibility programs.

We first earned the trust of the global imaging industry where we continue to design and manage highly efficient ink and toner take-back, recovery, and reuse programs. These partnerships are with Fortune 500 companies such as Xerox, Staples, HP and Konica Minolta.

Today, manufacturers of all types turn to CtL to minimize waste and work towards a circular economy. A circular economy makes the most of your valuable resources, transforming items that would normally end up in landfills and oceans into useful commodities that can be returned to the supply chain.

If you don’t already have a working take-back and recovery program, partnering with us to design a program that meets your needs will prevent missteps along the way.

With strategically located operations centers around the world, CtL is a clear choice to streamline your existing or a new sustainability program.

In 2021, Close the Loop merged with O F Packaging, an industry-recognized packaging specialist in Australia to form our new business group Close the Loop Group!  Then in December 2021, Close the loop Group became listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (CLG).  To learn more click here.

Sustainable packaging is in the core of our innovation efforts at O F Packaging. The shift to eco-packaging in Australia continues and we stay on top of it by pushing the boundaries of our packaging designs and manufacturing capabilities. The industry has already made significant strides in environmentally friendly packaging.

O F Packaging provides premium and innovative flexible and carton packaging to brands all around the world.  Together O F Packaging and Close the Loop share one common goal of diverting waste from landfill!
