A step forward in the Group's sustainable development strategy. Sofidel set the goal of reducing the use of conventional plastics in its production by 50% by 2030 (compared to 2013). This is equivalent to removing over 11,000 tonnes of plastic from the market per year.
This objective is being pursued through a general reduction, already started in recent years, in the thickness of the plastic film used in the production process, the introduction of new kraft paper packaging to shop shelves and the progressive use, in some markets, of recycled plastics or bioplastics. This new phase of the sustainability process is consequent to and consistent with the policies and investments that Sofidel has made in recent years in terms of responsible procurement of raw materials, energy efficiency of plants, rational use of water resources within production processes and technological innovation for production assets.
