Conai for eco-sustainability in packaging: the 2015 Stewardship Tender is now underway
The Consortium awards 200,000 Euros to manufacturers and users of packaging which invest in green packagingThe second edition of the “CONAI Tender for stewardship – Enhancing the environmental sustainability of packaging“, promoted by CONAI, Consorzio Nazionale Imballaggi, to reward the most innovative and eco-sustainable packaging solutions on the market, in the two-year period of 2013-2014. The tender is open to all companies of the consortium which have reviewed their packaging with the aim of fostering innovation and environmental sustainability, taking action on at least one of the following points: reuse, reduction in the use of raw materials, optimisation of logistics, facilitating recycling activities, use of recycled materials, simplification of the packaging system and optimisation of production processes. All entries must be received by July 31 2015, by downloading the appropriate application pack (STEWARDSHIP_Tender_2015). Applications will then be analysed using the Conai Eco Tool (www.ecotoolconai.org), which makes it possible to calculate, through a simplified LCA, the effects of the stewardship measures implemented by companies in their packaging using a before-after comparison in terms of saving energy and water, and the reduction of CO2 emissions. The Consorzio Nazionale Imballaggi will provide 200,000 Euros in prize money to worthy projects, of which 60,000 Euros will be shared by the 6 winning entries judged to be the most virtuous.
