Our commitments: 26 new patents by 2020


In 2020, 7 new patents were developed: 2 new patents in Italy, 1 in Luxembourg and 4 design models in Italy. We have recorded 25 new patents since the start of the Sustainability Programme, with more than 170 patents and IP (intellectual properties) recorded by 2020. At the end of 2020, we are almost on target. There is no doubt that we will exceed it in the coming months.


Our two major areas of innovation are:
Connected Closures that meet the high expectations of the market and consumers.
Eco-design projects which develop products that consume fewer resources, are more recyclable and use new materials which have a lower impact on the environment.
