Green Economy

For more than 20 years, CONAI has been a virtuous example for recycling packaging waste, while also playing a leading role in Italy’s Green Economy. In fact, CONAI’s work not only focuses on protecting the environment but also on creating economic and social value, with a major positive impact on employment.

Thanks to recycling packaging waste, in 2017 consumption of about 3.8 million tons of raw material was avoided, almost 50% more than in 2005, the consumption of over 42 million tons of raw material.

From the economic point of view, the benefits generated by the CONAI-Consorzi di Filiera chain reached 970 million euros in 2017, a doubled value compared to 2005. Extending the perspective for the period 2005-2017, the economic benefit generated for the System Country was equal to 9.8 billion euros.
