Zero & Co. winner of the “Ecodesign call for packaging”
On the occasion of the summit “Resilienza e Innovazione: il modello Puglia” organized by Corriere della Sera – Economy, Zero & Company was elected winner of the “Ecodesign call for packaging” established by CONAI, the National Consortium guaranteeing the recycling of packaging.
The Company, which has always been attentive to environmental sustainability, has created a simplified system for packing and logistic optimization, avoiding the use of hangers inside the packed boxes and reducing, in this way, the number of the cardboard boxes for the shipment. The goods (jackets for adults and children) without hangers are now packed in smaller boxes allowing an increase in products transported on pallets (+ 40%).
In fulfilling our unstinting and constant commitment to protecting the environment, we ensure full regulatory compliance in every link in the production chain without ever renouncing the quality of our services and products. By standardising its manufacturing process, Zero & Co. has been able to adopt solutions that favour energy saving and sustainable development. The economic and environmental policies of the company include:
• Procuring our energy supplies from green sources. The energy generated by around 4,000 square meters of solar panels not only illuminates and heats the production facilities but also powers all the manufacturing and packaging machinery.
• Certifications of the raw materials and finished products manufactured by the company over the years. The company has set its sights on obtaining important quality certifications such as STANDARD 100, issued by OEKO-TEX®, a consumer-oriented standard that guarantees a high level of product safety and efficiency.
• Waste recovery and disposal is carried out in full compliance with current law. Zero & Co. uses certified companies specialising in the recovery and sustainable disposal of waste and textile scraps. Our company also recycles and reuses fabric leftovers to add details and accessories to finished garments and products.
