The packaging for exhaust hoods by Elica SpA was modified based on a “less air to transport” approach. The packaging, which consisted of a box in corrugated cardboard, polyethylene low density film and polystyrene protective inserts, is now composed of a box in corrugated cardboard with a 20% reduction in weight with the same performance, LDPE film and PP straps, increasing the transportability value by 36%. Since 1999 the company has adopted an Environmental Management System in compliance with UNI EN ISO Standard 14001.
