For direct materials, the proportion of recycled materials used in 2019 was around 1.3% (previous year: 1.6%), regained from used products. This figure is reported in Sika’s operational reporting system. For many other secondary materials, such as packaging or solvents, local Sika companies use circular systems or rely on the recycling systems in place today in many countries.
