Ecoembes is a non-profit company whose corporate objects include the design and organization of an Integrated Management System (IMS) for the selective collection and recovery of packaging waste for subsequent treatment, recycling and upgrading.

To this end, there is a process in place that starts with people depositing packaging in the yellow containers (plastic packaging, cans and cartons) and in the blue containers (paper and cardboard packaging) made available to us by the town halls, which then handle the process of picking up and transporting the packaging to recycling plants. There, the packaging is recycled and turned into new raw materials that are used to make new products.

Ecoembes was incorporated in 1996. Since then, more than 12,000 companies have joined the IMS and receive the support of Ecoembes in terms of ecodisgn of their packaging.

In 2017 Ecoembes opened The Circular Lab, an open innovation center focused on the pioneering circular economy in Europe.
