Financing

Financing

The CONAI system is self-financing through the application of the “CONAI Environmental Contribution”. The Contribution is levied upon the so-called “first transfer”, which takes place when the finished packaging, even temporarily and for whatever reason, is transferred from the last producer to the first user within the national boundaries.
CONAI pays the contributions received to the Material Consortia which mainly use these funds to pay Municipalities the “compensation fee”, as stipulated by the ANCI-CONAI Agreement, for the take back of packaging waste from separated waste collection. The subjects required to pay the Contribution are those who first place the finished packaging on the national market. Packaging produced for export is on the other hand exempted from the payment of the Environmental Contribution.
CONAI, National Packaging Consortium, is a private consortium of firms working towards the recovery and recycling of packaging issued for consumption on national territory, with the aim of meeting statutory targets.
CONAI guarantees target achievement at the lowest economic cost of all the European consortia, working as a market subsidiary.
