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 2019 consumption of about 4,5 million tons of raw material was avoided, 50% more than in 2005.

From the economic point of view, the benefits generated by the CONAI-Consorzi di Filiera chain reached 1 billion euros in 2019, more than doubled value compared to 2005. A commitment that in twenty years avoided  the filling 160 new landfills.
