Increased environmental contributions on raw materials

EMILIANA IMBALLAGGI would like to inform all its customers that legally mandated environmental contributions on raw materials such as wood, paper and plastic purchased by packaging users have been increased. This change, which was decided by CONAI, became effective on 1 January 2020. These environmental contributions are intended to guarantee resources for recovering and recycling packaging waste throughout the country.

In our case, the contribution for wooden packaging, for which the supply chain consortium Rilegno is responsible, has increased from 7 to 9 euros per tonne. As stated by CONAI organisation, besides the increase in the amounts delivered, the main reason for this increase is the fact that the only existing wood recycling plant in Southern Italy was shut down, resulting in higher transport costs for recycling in Northern Italy.
