Pochet and Sulapac, winners of the Luxe Pack in green awards

Sustainable development was a key topic of the 2017 edition of Luxe Pack Monaco.

On Tuesday 3 October, after an excellent discourse to a packed hall from Mr Laurent Boillot, CEO of Guerlain, on his vision of sustainable development, followed by a roundtable addressing in concrete terms the sustainable actions conducted in the luxury sector, HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco presented the Luxe Pack in green Monaco 2017 Awards.

Sulapac offers a brand-new, entirely biodegradable packaging material made of wood and natural binders, which can be mass-produced using traditional plastic moulding techniques, including injection, extrusion and blow-moulding. It has mechanical properties that are comparable to those of plastic. It is water and oil-resistant, and offers an excellent oxygen barrier for protecting the product. Thanks to its small carbon footprint, it is an environmentally-friendly product. Sulapac also offers reduced costs when compared to bioplastics.

Groupe Pochet was the jury’s choice in the category: “CSR approach”. The group will be celebrating its 400th anniversary in 2023. With an eye toward the future and sustained by its history, it has implemented an ambitious transformation programme which includes a robust corporate social responsibility strategy. It is this global approach, structured around four pillars presenting costed, dated and substantiated commitments, which won the approbation of the jury.

This year, for the 30th anniversary of Luxe Pack Monaco, the Luxe Pack in green Awards were present in conjunction with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation which participated in the jury and in the roundtable event at the exhibition. Furthermore, the Foundation will provide winners with scientific and technical support to consolidate the work they have done and enable them to benefit from its international network.

The presence of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco demonstrates the strong commitment of the Principality to these environmentally-friendly solutions, as part of a dynamic to raise awareness of these issues internationally,” highlight the organisers of the event in a release.
