MEGA, with the absolute respect to the Principles of Circular Economy, since 2020 incorporates recycled closed – loop material in its products’ packaging, thereby contributing dynamically to the efforts of rational management of resources by avoiding the use of virgin LDPE produced from oil, thus significantly improving its carbon profile. Notably, the recycled material complies with all the strict safety standards of MEGA resulting from the demanding diagnostic and laboratory tests carried out by the company.
The above environmental initiatives are part of the Act Green Sustainability Strategic Plan.
With the ACT GREEN program, MEGA is aiming to create a positive impact of sustainability through the substantial redesign of its processes and products (REDESIGN), adopting the principles of the circular economy, achieving significant levels of material reuse (RECYCLE) and resource savings (REDUCE).
MEGA, through its daily operations, as well as its strategic choices, is promoting responsible production and consumption, thereby contributing to the common effort for ensuring a sustainable future to the next generations.
