Prevention Dossier

The Prevention Dossier, published every three years by Conai, was created to provide information about a selection of eco-sustainable packaging materials available on the market.

The objective of the Dossier is to demonstrate and present the advantages of the prevention actions implemented by companies on their own primary, secondary and tertiary packaging. This is how Conai intends to promote awareness and diffusion of best practices, as well as to give a fresh impetus to efforts to reduce the environmental impact of packaging materials, from the design stage to the post-consumer stage.

Prevention actions can be broken down into the seven categories identified by Conai (reuse, raw materials savings, use of recovered/recycled materials, facilitation of recycling activities, logistics optimisation, simplification of packaging systems, optimisation of production processes), which refer to all packaging materials: steel, aluminium, paper, wood, plastic and glass.
