Novo Verde Symbol
The “Novo Verde” mark is registered by Novo Verde as a packaging-specific identification symbol in the Integrated System for the Management of Packaging Waste.
Once the “Novo Verde” mark is affixed to a packaging unit, it means that the economic operator responsible for it fulfils its responsibility as the first party to put the product into the market, transferring this responsibility to a system by paying the financial fees.
Until 31.12.2018, the marking of packaging with the specific system mark was mandatory by law on disposable primary packaging and optional on disposable reusable packaging and carrier bags. As of 01.01.2019, single-use packaging is no longer affected by this obligation.
The legal framework for the mandatory labelling of packaging is set out in Article 28 of the
Legislative Decree No. 152-D / 2017, as amended.
Operators may use this symbol if they enter into a contract with Novo Verde, pay the amount established for its use and comply with the graphic rules.
