Guala Closures receives "ISSC Plus" certification

Guala Closures has received an "International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) Plus" accreditation, which will facilitate the use of certified sustainable materials for the production of closures manufactured at the Spinetta Marengo plant.

This recognition, issued by Bureau Veritas verifies Guala Closures are producing "Circular Packaging" and "Bio-Circular Packaging" closures, which are certified as sustainable thanks to control of the entire supply chain, from raw materials to final products.

ISCC Plus certification enables companies to monitor and demonstrate the quality of their products by checking the sustainability and traceability requirements along the entire production chain. This represents a real commitment to supporting a circular economy, helping businesses to act more responsibly.

This certification covers all closures produced at the Spinetta Marengo site, according to a mass balance approach, as long as they contain a part manufactured with ISCC Plus certified plastics declared in the audit report.

Franco BoveCOO of Guala Closures Group, commented, “Our historic headquarters is the first plant within the Group to obtain ISCC Plus certification. It is an important signal and a quality standard that we intend to replicate in the other Guala Closures plants around the world. Currently the Group is working on its 2022-2030 Sustainability Program, to be presented next year. This will ensure Guala Closures will continue its commitment to people, communities and the territories in which it operates" he added.

Since 2020, the Group has been offering a line of sustainable closures – Blossom® Sustainable Closures – together with other projects such as the agreement signed with Oceanworks® and the recent entrance into UN Global Compact.
