Eco-sustainability at the heart of our actions
Green Packaging. Our deep conviction in pursuing a path of innovation and eco-sustainability has led us to set up an environmental management system that has enabled us to be the first company in our sector to obtain ISO 14001 Environmental Certification.
To date, this certification has always been confirmed, testifying to a deep and lasting commitment to the concept of sustainable development.
From small gestures…
…to community involvement
THINKING AND ACTING GREEN
“Our strategic choices and investments are aimed at achieving environmentally sustainable productivity that safeguards the environment and optimises production with a view to saving energy.”
GREEN PACKAGING: here’s why we can call it that
Environmentally friendly innovation
“Over the years, we have decided to make significant investments to embark on a path of innovation and eco-sustainability.”
The process of continuous evolution traced by our company places respect for the environment as one of the cardinal principles on which our production philosophy is based. This is why we have decided, over the years, to make strategic choices and important investments that would lead us towards full respect for eco-sustainable productivity that safeguards the environment and optimises production with a view to saving energy.
We have completed the modernisation of our machine park with the replacement of hydraulic presses with state-of-the-art hybrid or electric presses. The result is a reduction in the use and disposal of lubricants and a consequent reduction in energy consumption.
New ecological roofing. During 2017, the removal of asbestos-cement roofing was completed, leading to the elimination of the ‘asbestos risk’ and the possibility of particle pollution
We have installed a 248KWp photovoltaic system on the roof of our buildings. With an area of approx. 3,000 m², the system will enable us to move towards a significant reduction in CO₂ emissions.
A new LED lighting system was deliberately extended to all company departments
We have replaced the heat shrinking plant with a new burner-free system. This improvement will lead to a decrease in emissions and the use of gas
The commitment to reducing environmental impact also goes through the choice of introducing alternative, innovative and recycled materials during mass manufacturing

“The commitment to reducing environmental impact also goes through the choice and development of innovative and sustainable solutions in mass manufacturing”
We are aware that in order to revive economic development, companies must resort to business models that look not only at increasing productivity but also at technology and reducing resource consumption.
And it is precisely as a sign of our deep interest in sustainable development that we have always made significant investments in R&D to embark on a path of innovation and eco-sustainability.
Specifically, the involvement of universities, research institutes and leading companies in the sector has enabled us to develop important synergies aimed at the search for innovative and sustainable solutions (raw materials) capable of maintaining the physical/mechanical characteristics that are indispensable for high-quality packaging.
We are thus able to offer sustainable and high-quality packaging solutions through the use of the following alternative materials:
MATERIALS WITH REDUCED TRANSFORMATION ENERGY
Innovative formulations developed by our suppliers to achieve a reduction of transformation energy in the process. These state-of-the-art raw materials enable us to produce quality packaging that is 100% recyclable.
PLASTIC SECOND LIFE POST PROCESS
All waste products in our processes are reused, after grinding and regranulation, to obtain recycled material from which new recycled plastic containers with characteristics in line with our standards can be made. In this sense, ISI Plast can be defined as a ‘zero waste’ company.
POST-CONSUMER SECOND LIFE PLASTICS
This is recycled post-consumer plastic material through which it is possible to make products that respect nature!
Containers produced through ‘second life’ recycled material are suitable for industrial uses, especially for ‘green’ lines, and for waste disposal.
The ‘Colour Changers’
A testament to our commitment to the environment is our company’s handling of so-called ‘colour change’ containers (packaging that is technically identical to the first-rate containers but differs from them only in that the colour is not clearly defined and homogenous).
These containers are not discarded generating waste but are offered to customers who need packaging for their internal use.
ISI Plast è un’azienda a scarto 0, perché i nostri scarti vengono tenuti divisi per colori omogenei, macinati ed in seguito stampati realizzando nuovi contenitori.
