Our approach to environmental sustainability

Our approach to environmental sustainability

"The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it" (Robert Swan).

It is essential to realise that we must act on the front line to protect the planet, and we do our part, by putting plenty of effort to improve the environmental performances of our sustainable beverage cartons.

We strongly believe that the environment must be preserved and protected and that is why we are proud to offer packages that are Renewable, Responsible and totally Recyclable, aware that aseptic carton bricks are the most sustainable packaging for liquid food and beverages. The sustainability of long-life cartons is also perceived by consumers, who recognize them as the greenest packaging for shelf-stable dairy products.

We constantly strive to increase the renewability and sustainability of our aseptic bricks, always looking to the future, at people, and at the planet.

Renewable packaging

Our aseptic packaging is renewable, as it is mostly composed of materials from renewable sources. In fact, our aseptic carton packages are made of paperboard and biopolyethylene made from sugar cane, which we use to manufacture caps and material layers, and thanks to the use of paper straws, we can proudly say that our packaging is renewable up to 90%. Our R&D aims to provide our customers with a completely renewable packaging material, with no trace of fossil-based materials.

Responsible packaging

Our aseptic packaging is a responsible choice to protect the environment since the carton bricks supply chain has a much lower impact on CO2 emissions when compared to other packaging solutions. Various reasons contribute to reduce the carbon footprint of our packaging, among which: production, logistics and conservation in liquid cartons. IPI provides its customers with sustainable carton packages made with FSC® certified paperboard from responsibly managed forests and is among the few companies in the aseptic packaging business to be certified against the ASI Performance Standard, assuring the responsible supply of aluminium.


Recyclable packaging

Our packaging is fully recyclable. The transition from linear economy to circular economy means that existing waste materials are recycled and reused in order to create ever new products. Thanks to the separation of the paperboard of our aseptic carton bricks from aluminium and polyethylene a second life is possible for the raw materials. As a company, we strongly promote the recycling of our aseptic carton packaging and commit ourselves to correctly reuse production waste materials.
