Sustainability Matters: IMA ZERO

Tissue&Nonwoven is committed to sustainable practices, which are a fundamental pillar of IMA Group.

IMA ZERO, born in 2019, is the foundation of the Group’s sustainable development programme. It has the ultimate goal of minimizing environmental impact in industrial manufacturing, and of promoting and creating a working and living habitat that always puts people at the centre. IMA ZERO is composed of 4 main programs: NoP (No-Plastic Program), LOW (Low Impact Program), E-MOB (Sustainable Mobility Program) and YOU (Human-Centric Program).

All these pillars put at the forefront the environment and the people living in it.

In the packaging industry, adopting sustainable solutions is a mandatory challenge: through the research and testing of alternative processes and materials, together with specialised partners, IMA NoP fosters plastic-free and sustainable, compostable or biodegradable packaging solutions.
For this purpose, IMA has established the OPENLab: a series of laboratories where Material Technologists study, develop and test compostable and recyclable materials to be used on its packaging equipment.

IMA ZERO is our very latest promise to create products, production processes and services, benefitting from a renewed logic of sustainability and from the awareness that our commitment today will help to shape the world of tomorrow.
