FTI is Förpackningsinsamlingen (the Packaging Collection Service). Our assignment is to collect packaging so it can be recycled.
Owners and Board of Directors
FTI is owned by four materials companies – Svensk Plaståtervinning, Returkartong, Svensk GlasÅtervinning and Svenska Metallkretsen.
The activities do not generate a profit, and no dividends are paid to the owners.
FTI’s relationship with the materials companies
Our business is based on producer responsibility for packaging. Producer responsibility means that any company that places packaging in the Swedish market is also responsible for ensuring that the packaging is collected and is recycled. The Swedish government introduced producer responsibility in 1994. To meet this new requirement, the business community joined forces and formed materials companies, which subsequently formed the Packaging Collection Service (FTI).
FTI’s Board consists of representatives assigned by the owners of the materials companies.
- Lars Påhlson – Chair
- Peter Trimmel – CEO, Svenska Metallkretsen
- Mattias Philipsson – CEO, Svensk Plaståtervinning
- Magnus Andersson – CEO, Svensk Glasåtervinning
- Ingrid Näsström – CEO, RK Returkartong
- Cecilia Möller – employee representative, Akademikerna (trade union) FTI
About the materials companies
Like FTI, none of the four materials companies generate a profit. No dividends are paid to the owners. The aim is to minimize the impact of collection and recycling-related expenses on the price of the goods.

The collection scheme is mainly financed by the packaging fees paid by our affiliated producers. We are a non-profit operation. We do not generate a profit from our activities or distribute profits to our owners. The idea is that the collection scheme finances itself. It should not burden the price of the goods any more than is necessary for the collection scheme to work.
The collection scheme is mainly financed by the packaging fees paid by our affiliated producers. We are a non-profit operation and do not distribute any profits to our owners. The cost of collection and recycling should have the least effect possible on the price of the goods.
