Sustainable development & CSR
Concrete solutions vs. Green washing
In a difficult and highly competitive market situation, ILIP’s Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility is translated into concrete commitments, pragmatic choices and the implementation of solutions capable of reducing the environmental impact of the production processes and the final products.
“Informing and allowing customers to choose between different sustainable options according to their own needs”: this is the fundamental principle at the basis of ILIP’s relationships with its customers.
Ilip’s Three Main Commitments
1. REDUCE packaging weight without compromising the safety and shelf life of the packaged products.
Thanks to its know-how, ILIP is at the forefront of downgauging, in terms of both extrusion and thermoforming. Furthermore, ILIP promotes more sustainable and innovative packaging systems, like heat sealing.
2. RECYCLING is the real challenge for our future, and r-PET (post-consumer PET) is currently the irrefutable proof that recycling has become economically and environmentally sustainable.
ILIP promotes the culture and the use of post-consumer plastic raw materials, and is part of I.L.P.A. SRL vertical integration of the r-PET supply chain in a CLOSED LOOP SYSTEM: from post consumer waste to food packaging.
3. RENEWABLE RESOURCES. Bioplastics, plastics from plant like PLA (Polylactid acid), are renewable and compostable and are a valid solution and alternative to polymers of fossil origin.
ILIP is the only European manufacturer with complete ranges of disposable tableware, foodservice packaging and fresh produce packaging made with PLA
