Circularity supports the company in its strategic and planning path to map and eliminate or replace the use of paper and/or plastic from the company perimeter, digitise processes, raise awareness among the company population and communicate the commitment to employees and external stakeholders.
Identify the aspects that are involved on the various levels of the life cycle of plastic and/or paper products and gain awareness of the risk arising from the incorrect management, consumption and dispersion of materials in the environment.
Address and evaluate the replacement of paper/plastic products with recycled or biodegradable materials.
Map the results obtained from the initiatives undertaken according to the guidelines of the Materials Under Control protocol and validate the actions taken.
The external body will verify compliance and compliance with the requirements supported by a checklist. If the outcome is positive, certification will be issued.
