Coem has reduced the consumption of packaging materials by 50% compared to 2021
Our packaging uses mainly three categories of materials: wood, plastic and cardboard. Data show a fall of 10.5% of specific consumption of packaging materials compared to 2021. Wherever possible, cardboard bubble wrap and other environmentally friendly cardboard material is used for sample preparation, and where this is not possible as its use would cause the sample to break, recycled plastic bubble wrap is used. The shrink sleeves we use for packaging are made partially of recyclable plastic and are recyclable.
For several years we have adopted a packaging technology that makes it possible to reduce the consumption of cardboard by up to 50%, composed of recycled and completely recyclable material. In 2022 a programme for the gradual elimination of white cardboard, subject, therefore, to chemical whitening treatments, replaced by neutral unwhitened cardboard. The use of cutting-edge packaging machines, which package our ceramic surfaces directly in the machine and just-in-time with personalised graphics, make it possible to limit the consumption of cardboard. It is worth mentioning that achieves excellence in all the packaging parameters linked to the new ISO 17889-1 certification, as independently verified.
