Sustainability: an advanced product offer, an effective ESG approach

The company has been actively engaged in sustainability for over 15 years starting research on low impact materials, a commitment that has developed until now with the implementation of a concrete ESG strategy whose core is based on research on new, more sustainable packaging products.

The most evident outcome of this commitment is EcoPositive, a new range of eco-friendly solutions, developed consistently with 3 different sustainability approaches:

  • Regenerate: glass and plastic packaging recycled from first-choice waste collection, such as rPET and rHDPE bottles
  • Renew: bioplastic packaging derived from renewable sources, such as PE bottles and PP capsules produced from sugarcane leftovers
  • Reloop: glass and advanced polymer products made from infinitely reusable materials, such as Carbon Capture PET bottles produced from the recovery and transformation of CO2 emissions.

These glass and plastic solutions can be provided together with detailed LCA studies, as well as
with extractables testing showing the safety in any conditions of these solutions in respect to
conventional ones.

Besides continuous R&D efforts on new, sustainable materials, Bormioli Pharma’s ESG strategy features measurable, concrete targets on 4 areas of action:

  • using sustainable raw materials for 50% of its production by 2025
  • reducing water consumption by 41% and CO2 emissions by 30% by 2030
  • 95% office employees trained for D&I by 2025
  • assessing 90% of its suppliers on the international rating platform EcoVadis, which measures the performance of the sustainability management system of suppliers.
