From plastic to cotton: GNA Srl proposes an eco-friendly solution. A green alternative that represents a great opportunity to stand out from competition.
Climate change and environmental degradation are a major threat to the Earth, and it is now visible to all. That is why the European Union is committed to the Green Deal, which will transform the EU into a modern, resource-efficient economy.
The European Commission has adopted a series of proposals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 55% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels. The aim is to reduce emissions over the next decade to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050 and to make the Green Deal a reality.
Decoupling economic growth from resource-intensive use requires everyone’s commitment: Consumers and companies, many of which have been offering sustainable solutions for a long time. Among them, the Italian company GNA Srl from Ozzano Emilia (Bologna), specialized in the production of packaging machines for food and non-food products.

The Bologna based company is now offering its Wrap Box wrapping machine in a new guise.
