October 1, 2020 - 5pm
Meeting Point Istituto Marangoni Via Cerva 24 Milano

The session investigates new strategies and systems of the circular economy. Sustainable models of production and consumption, research and innovation, and improvement of digital infrastructures, are drivers for the restart in our country, the keys to the development on which to work for the future of our planet and the protection of our territories. And Green businesses, as confirmed by the GreenItaly Report 2019, are more innovative than others: 79% have developed activities of innovation, as opposed to 61% of non-investors. The innovation also has to do with production processes 4.0, with an increasing focus on transformation of scrap and refuse into a resource, also in economic terms.
