As of May 2020, after surmounting a long and thorough assessment process, Icma has become part of the B Corp® group, a global movement involving companies that want to make their contribution to historic cultural change to protect the environment and favor social development.
Being a Benefit Corporation means voluntarily committing to a journey of continuous improvement concerning environmental impact, the wellbeing of employees, the active role in the community to which the company belongs, but also to the general mission of the company, including ethics, responsibilities, and transparency; all of this while maintaining the nature of an organization that pursues economic goals.
The first results of the Icma 2030-Lab project, obtained through a long process of research into materials, are the new “100% R Bases” papers, which are 100% recycled, certified with the FSC Recycled Credit, and produced in an integrated cycle without the use of optical bleachings. They represent a different approach to sustainability from those currently offered in the sector of creative paper for luxury packaging and will be available as of May 2020.
The new papers are the most suitable materials on which to begin a new season of research and creativity into the surface processing of paper and cardboard and will provide the market with an aesthetically and ecologically unique collection.
PAPER IS REBORN
Rinascimento, an innovative circular economy process, is Icma’s latest creation, aimed at providing a service with added value for the client, the end-user, and the environment.
Rinascimento turns cellulosic scraps from the client companies into elegant recycled creative paper— the protagonist of the companies’ own packaging projects.
