    Collaborations and partnerships

    We’re proud to mention our long-standing collaboration with Novamont and are registered user no.1 of the Novara-based chemical company’s Mater-Bi trademark license.
    Mater-Bi is an innovative range of bioplastics which use plant components like corn starch and biodegradable polymers, derived from both renewable and synthetic raw materials.

    Mater-Bi was developed by Novamont and is a highly innovative material that resents a real solution to current, strongly impacting problems, such as managing organic waste. The plant component of Mater-Bi allows industrial companies to offer mass consumption products with low environmental impact, reducing greenhouse gas emission and consumption of energy and non-renewable resources.

    We have supported the environmental protection projects of Italy’s largest environmental agency, Legambiente, for years. We support important projects like the “Ridurre si può” and “Disimballiamoci” campaigns to reduce unnecessary packaging and the “Spiagge e fondali puliti” beach cleaning volunteering day at the sea, to clear abandoned waste from our beaches and sea beds.

    Since 2011 we’ve been on board with the “Treno Verde” environmental project, another information and awareness campaign by Legambiente focussed on energy, urban quality of life and sustainable living in our homes.

    Our local area

    Companies are not outsiders in their local area; they are responsible for contributing to the development of that area. That’s why we sponsor local sporting events and activities and collaborate with two Social Co-operatives: L’Incontro and La Vallorgana.
