We protect the environment
Corporate social responsibility
From raw materials to the use of renewable energy in the plants, we are seriously committed to protecting the environment.
Board chain of custody
Circular Economy and fight against waste
Nothing in ICIS is wasted. We only use low odor and low migration plant-based inks that we prepare in the quantity strictly necessary for production, avoiding the need to manage leftovers. We produce part of the energy necessary for our needs with photovoltaic panels and we use energy from renewable sources. Board scraps related to die-cutting operations are sent for recycling and generate new raw material. We are members of the CONAI and COMIECO consortia. In 1985 we were founding members of the National Consortium for the recovery and recycling of cellulose-based packaging (COMIECO), which in 2019 collected and sent 81% of the collected paper for recycling. We have always been involved in the circular economy.
COMIECO is the national consortium for the recovery and recycling of cellulose-based packaging, and brings together paper mills, converters, processors and importers of paper and board for packaging. It was established in 1985 as a private body as the result of the wish of a group of companies in the paper sector including ICIS interested in promoting the concept of “ecological packaging” and since 1997 it has become a national supply chain consortium for the recycling of this type of material, in compliance with Legislative Decree 22/97, subsequently Legislative Decree 152/06. It is part of the CONAI system.
