Environmental labeling of packaging

CONAI’s tools to support businesses


The legislative decree n. 116, 2020, introduced the obligation of environmental labeling for packaging. Businesses immediately moved to respond to the regulatory requirements, despite having many doubts.

To answer the businesses many questions, CONAI decided to develop this platform dedicated to the topic, where to bring together the tools developed to support businesses.

It starts with the Guidelines on mandatory environmental labeling, the outcome of joint work with the Italian Packaging Institute and the participation of many players in the associative and industrial world, which propose a shared interpretation of the standard, as a useful technical reference. Available both in downloadable and browsable format in Italian and English.

The Guidelines for voluntary environmental labeling are also available, currently in public consultation at the following site: www.progettarericiclo.com/docs/etichettura-ambientale-degli-imballaggi. A useful support for the many companies that have approached this novelty as an opportunity to also review the set of voluntary environmental information to be reported on their packs. Take part in the public consultation and leave your comments!

The FAQ section continuously is updated and enriched with answers to the most frequent and significant questions, collected by CONAI through the epack@conai.org service and the webinars promoted in the recent months.

If you cannot find the answer you are looking for, send us your questions using the appropriate form in the “Send your question” section.

Since good examples are always inspirational, we have created a “Best Practices” section, where we collect your virtuous labels, which you can send us through the “Send your Best Practice” section.

When you are ready to move from theory to practice, remember to use e-tichetta, the tool designed by CONAI to help companies identify information for environmental labeling.
