Mosca topped the list of winners in the “Germany’s best – Sustainability” category of Focus Money’s prestigious awards for German companies. The company has thus set the benchmark for the industry in the “Mechanical and Plant Engineering” category, in which 34 companies were ranked.

The award was made as part of the “Germany’s Best – Sustainability” study conducted by the IMWF (Institute for Management and Economic Research) on behalf of Focus Money and the Deutschland Test. The study looked at around 24,000 companies and brands in the period from March 2020 to February 2021. By taking first place in the “Mechanical and Plant Engineering” category, Mosca has set the benchmark for the industry.

Mosca’s supporting sustainability goals

The award criteria, which give equal weight to ecology, economy, and social issues, prove that sustainability goes far beyond environmental protection. For Mosca, sustainable conduct has always encompassed these three areas, starting with strapping itself as a transport security solution. 

The minimal packaging requires only narrow plastic straps for transport protection, separated and recycled by type after use. The PET strapping produced by Mosca already consists of 100 percent recycled materials, and PP strapping is also produced with up to 30 percent recycled content. 

The company is already aiming to increase this proportion. The production of strapping itself is carried out in a “green” process at the Odenwald plant in Muckental, a state-of-the-art production facility that produces plastic strapping from PET and PP, fully automatically and around the clock. All the necessary energy comes from the company’s own solar power plant and renewable sources

In addition, Mosca strives to systematically implement the circular economy, which benefits customers and actively involves them in shaping it. Customers are encouraged to return their strapping to the cycle after use, thus supporting their own sustainability goals.

Conserving resources

Mosca’s strapping machines themselves operate efficiently and in an environmentally friendly manner. The company has established its own label for this purpose: “GET Inside” (“Green Efficient Technology inside”), which refers to sealing by means of low-emission and energy-saving ultrasonic technology, wear-free direct drives, and the use of electronics instead of pneumatics, as well as requiring the use of climate-neutral PET strapping.

Energy-saving innovations from Mosca thus deliver immediate added value. The patented SoniXs ultrasonic technology translates into lower energy consumption, as there is no need to heat the plastic strapping when joining the ends of the strap. As a result, no fumes or smells are generated by the melting of the strap, allowing the use of machines equipped with this sealing technology in all sectors, including the food industry. 

Mosca’s customers also benefit from the machines’ longevity based on high-quality materials, holistic solutions, targeted training, and customized maintenance concepts. This ensures smooth operation and extends the service life of the strapping machines. 

Social responsibility

Back in May of this year, Mosca signed the WIN Charter of the State of Baden-Württemberg to publicly affirm its commitment to human and employee rights, environmental concerns, regional and economic added value, and sustainable and fair finances. The commitment to social responsibility is also laid down in the company’s Code of Conduct. This means that business partners can be confident that they are working with a responsible and reliable partner.

Digital solutions for the future

Mosca is also committed to collaboration in energy-saving innovations and smart process solutions. Examples include remote and predictive maintenance as well as a pay-per-use model. Comparable to car sharing, this will in the future enable customers to pay only for the strapping they use, but not for the machine itself. Such innovative concepts show Mosca’s total focus on customer-oriented solutions that offer practical added value without placing an additional burden on the environment.

“We are delighted to receive this recognition for our efforts in intensifying our sustainability initiatives,” commented Mosca’s Managing Director, Simone Mosca. “In essence, our aim is not to be better than everyone else. For us, successful sustainability is when everyone gets better and better together. That is why we work with our customers and partners to keep optimizing both our own and their production processes in the spirit of sustainability.”


The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
