Botta Packaging of Italy is now offering carbon offsetting as a service to its customers

Botta Packaging, Italy, a corrugated box supplier is taking its sustainability services one step further. In addition to offering top quality sustainable packaging options it is now going to ensure its customers can truly minimize their environmental impact by offering carbon-offsetting as a service.

Botta is known for helping its customers achieve their sustainability goals by providing innovative sustainable packaging solutions. Despite this, Botta recognised there was more it could do. The challenge was that most of its packaging was already low impact. Corrugated cardboard boxes and paper-based packaging come from sustainable sources. They can be recycled numerous times and even be made using recycled liners, making them a valuable part of the circular economy. So where else could Botta help customers make impact reductions?

Customers will always look to reduce the impact of their packaging first. But there are impacts that by their nature cannot be removed completely, including production and transport emissions. It is these emissions that Botta is offering to offset as a service to customers. This service will include reports that can tie in with their customers’ existing environmental reporting systems.

As packaging is so often the first thing a customer sees of a business, customers can have their climate neutral packaging certification printed on the packaging, alongside a QR code that links through to the certified project the company is contributing to. This way customers’ commitments can be easily communicated.

“We know that for our customers, reducing their impact is not only the right thing to do for the planet, but also the right thing for their business. Helping them to remain ahead of the game when it comes being sustainable at every stage of their value chain. It is a very real threat these days to lose out to a competitor who can offer more sustainable solutions and alternatives. We want to help protect our customers and their reputations by offering them every option possible to achieve their sustainability goals and remain competitive,” states Lara Botta, VP Botta Packaging, Italy.

A family-owned Italian company, Botta has been in the corrugated cardboard packaging business for over 70 years. The company has a leading and competitive expertise in eco-friendly packaging. It collaborates and cooperates with universities, companies and start-ups to address innovation in the packaging industry, believing firmly in an open Innovation approach. Its strategy is focused on challenging and pursuing the most avant-garde packaging innovations that can be developed and enhanced to respond to the packaging sector’s needs – the company’s central focus.

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.
