Our History

Close the Loop (CtL) is an international company headquartered in Australia with operations in Australia, New Zealand, United States and Europe based in Belgium.  Now employing more than 200 people, the CtL is recognised as the global leader in imaging consumables takeback programs. Founded in 2001 with a zero waste to landfill brand promise, CtL has successfully adhered to that promise.  In 2003, Close the Loop partnered with Planet Ark to create the Cartridges for Planet Ark (C4PA) program.  This program is one of the most successful voluntary stewardship programs in the world. In 2007, Close the Loop took the success they had in Australia and expanded to the United States.  Here they expanded the relationships they had with the imaging companies and began to service their sustainability initiatives on a global level.  Then again in 2016 – Acquired Clozdloop BVBA in Belgium, a company based in Belgium who’s services aligned with CtL’s. Known globally for being a resource recovery and sustainability solutions provider, CtL helps major imaging companies become sustainability pace-setters within the industry. Today, Close the Loop translates that success and experience across all industries, in all regions of the world.  CtL is broadening their horizons managing other streams that leverage our existing skills and adding new capabilities to the business while staying true to their core values of transparency, innovation and integrity.
