Environmental labelling of packaging

From 1 January 2023, the Legislative Decree of 3 September 2020, n. 116 entered into force and requires that all packaging placed on the Italian market be “suitably labelled according to the methods established by the applicable UNI technical standards and in compliance with the decisions adopted by the Commission of the European Union, to facilitate the collection, re-use, recovery and recycling of packaging, as well as to give correct information to consumers on the final destinations of packaging”.

For the purposes of correct communication and indication of the environmental label, it is important to know that the information to be indicated differs according to the final recipient of the packaging, which can be the final consumer (indicated with B2C, or business to consumer) or a company (B2B, or business to business).
As regards our B2B channel, it is mandatory to report the alphanumeric coding of the packaging material established by Decision 97/129/EC. All other information remains, however, voluntarily applicable.

Also for the aforementioned channel, the standard allows, when it is not possible to affix the symbol on the packaging, to specify these references on the transport documents or to use digital channels which, in this case, can completely replace or integrate the mandatory information marked directly on the packaging.

For any packaging on which there will be no coding, Frilvam has prepared on the transport document and on the label on each single bag, a QR CODE “Environmental label” which will take you back to this WEB page.
