Our efforts to provide our consumers with sustainable packaging continue to receive widespread recognition, including from the 2020 edition of the “CONAI Award for Ecodesign in Packaging for the Circular Economy – Enhancing environmental sustainability in packaging”. The initiative was organised by CONAI (the National Packaging Consortium, which brings together producers and users of packaging), with sponsorship from the Italian Ministry of the Environment (now known as the Ministry of Ecological Transition). The award was for the most innovative and environmentally sustainable packaging solutions that appeared on the market in 2018 and 2019.
With 300 projects entered by participating companies, Bolton Group won awards for 25 solutions across Personal Care, Home Care, and Food products. Among Bolton Group’s most successful solutions at the seventh edition of the CONAI Awards were:
– Acqua alle Rose Latte detergent 200 ml, recognised for facilitating and incentivising recycling by end consumers and for reducing the amount of plastic raw materials used
– WC Net gel 800 ml, recognised for its use of recycled materials
– Rio Mare Tuna with olive oil 80 g, recognised for the design of the cans, which enabled us to reduce the thickness of the tinplate used.
According to CONAI, the 25 winning solutions contributed – along with all the others honoured – to reducing the environmental impact of packaging through a 21% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions and a 19% water saving.
