Wherever relevant, reuse business models should be explored as a preferred option, reducing the need for single-use plastic packaging.
A renewed system for plastics will benefit both the environment and the economy. This means keeping materials in use – either as products or, when they can no longer be used, as components or raw materials. This way, nothing becomes waste and the intrinsic value of products and materials is retained.
As the first strategic financial services partner of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Intesa Sanpaolo is committed to helping make the circular economy a reality – including how plastic is used. It makes sense for both the planet and business.
