ACMA's sustainability commitment: building a greener future together

Our approach to sustainability

The only future is the sustainable future. To get there, ACMA is investing in a new company approach and in the development of green packaging solutions.

That's why ACMA is adopting a threefold strategy:

  • Green packaging formats, for a greener future
  • Sustainability Lab, exploring new sustainable solutions
  • Machines’ Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), to measure the machine’s impact on the environment

Green packages formats

In order to support customers in the Plastic to Paper transition, ACMA has designed new green pack types based on cardboard.

ACMA can provide different forming & filling technologies to bring new sustainable packaging solutions to life. These packages include:

  • Ecoshell
  • Tamper evident carton box
  • Flip top, Zip top & Slide pop

These green packages are ideal to win the branding challenge, since the paperboard provides infinite opportunities for an impactful design and an outstanding communication on the shelf.

Sustainability Lab

Sustainability Lab is a project dedicated to the research on green materials machinability, development of innovative upgrade kits and production optimization.

In collaboration with the Coesia Engineering Center (CEC), the central R&D asset of the Coesia Group focused on machine innovation and research on new packaging materials, ACMA can perform accurate laboratory analysis as well as machinability tests on paper-based, compostable, biodegradable and mono-materials, with a dedicated team of experts constantly at disposal.

The mission is to support customers and packaging materials producers in the sustainable transition, creating Partnerships to develop the machines of the future.

Machine Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

Machine Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

Life Cycle Assessment or LCA is a methodology for assessing environmental impacts associated with all the stages of the life cycle of a product. In particular, environmental impacts are assessed from raw material extraction and processing (cradle), through the product's manufacture, distribution and use, to the recycling or final disposal of the materials composing it (grave).

ACMA is one of the first Companies in its industry to carry out an assessment of the entire life cycle (LCA) of its machines to verify their environmental impact from cradle to grave.

More details are coming in 2023.
