The Naeco ecolabel identifies our plastic pallets, crates and containers with an exclusive and original sustainability index based on a 3R philosophy. For each R fulfilled by the product, it receives a sustainability “+”, with “+++” being the maximum classification on our environmental contribution scale.
What do the 3R on our sustainability ecolabel mean?
Recyclable: This indicates that the product has been eco-designed and can be deconstructed at the end of its useful life, allowing for its recycling and avoiding the creation of new waste.
Recycled: This indicates that the product has been produced from recycled materials, a feature that enables the material from other waste to be inserted back into the value chain.
Repairable: This indicates that the product has been designed to be repairable and that its pieces can be replaced for new ones, increasing its life cycle (and reuses) exponentially.
Can the environmental improvement of each product unit be measured?
For products that are made from recycled materials, we can measure the real contribution in terms of Recycling with the following parameter:
Recycled plastic packages: This indicates the number of plastic packages (units) that have been recycled to produce a single product unit.
Note: Based on our own experience and measurements made on our facilities, the average weight of the packages we recycle is 40gr per each package unit. This is the value used to perform the calculation.
