Karton wins Conai Environment Award 2017

Karton wins Conai Environment Award 2017

Karton's commitment to the environment is rewarded by CONAI

Milan, November 15th 2017

The sold-out event, organized in cooperation with Corriere della Sera newspaper, had several guests of honour: the inventor of the "cradle to cradle" concept, Professor Michael Braungart, and the author of the “Doughnut Economics”, Kate Raworth. But also Markus Beck, Business Development Lead for the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the world's leading institution for the promotion and development of the circular economy.

146 cases presented, 7 winners of the special prize, including our company: these are the numbers of the fourth edition of the "CONAI Call for Prevention - Enhancing the environmental sustainability of packaging". The winners of the Award were announced today.

The award is promoted by CONAI, the National Packaging Consortium, under the patronage of the Ministry of the Environment. CONAI awarded the most innovative and environmentally sustainable packaging solutions on the market for the years 2015 and 2016.

All the associated companies who designed their packaging aiming at environmental sustainability could participate in the tender. The main leverages were: re-use, raw materials savings, logistics optimisation, facilitation of recycling activities, use of recycled materials, simplification of the packaging system and optimization of production processes.

Karton revised and optimised the packaging system dedicated to the transport of special Cartonplast® sheets for visual communication, improving its environmental performance.

The wood pallet has been replaced with new pallet 12% lighter; moreover, the plastic protective components have been replaced with lighter materials, without compromising the packaging performance. The new protective packaging is made by 50% recycled material: a virtuous circle in which Karton gives a second life to end-of-life products (such as polypropylene  layer pads and pallets) recovered from its customers through the buy-back program: a genuine example of Circular Economy.

The winners have been selected applying the Conai Eco Tool (www.ecotoolconai.org),  a tool which calculates a simplified LCA analysis, measuring the effects of prevention actions applied on the packaging, analysing and comparing  energy, water and CO2 reduction.

The winning cases have been validated by a third certification company as well.

" CONAI Call for Prevention” has reached its fourth edition and has registered increasing numbers both in terms of candidacies (+ 22%) and in terms of projects awarded (+ 16%)" said Giorgio Quagliuolo, President of CONAI (photo). "It is thanks to prevention  actions and commitment of companies that the circular economy can continue to develop, reducing the environmental impact of packaging and favouring its recyclability at the end of its life".

Karton is a very good example of this practise.
