The ‘Green Deal’ to be marked at the Ecomondo 2020 exhibition in ItalyPublished 30/6 at 14:39
The Green Deal, which is intended to mark a new economic direction for Europe, has recently been established by Brussels.
This will make the EU the world’s first political entity to set the target of zero CO2 emissions (to be achieved by 2050). Additionally it will mark a ‘green restart’ for the European economy following the Covid-19 pandemic. Italy is ready to play a major role being eager to show how its research, innovation, new technology, green economy public policies and private investments can contribute to this new direction. To this end, the 24th Ecomondo, the ‘Green Technology Expo’ organised by IEG – Italian Exhibition Group - will be held from 3 to 6 November at the Rimini expo centre.
The exhibition will feature four sectors of the circular and green economy, comprising of ‘Waste and Resources’; ‘Water’ (with the integrated water cycle), ‘Bio economy and Remediation’ and ‘Hydrogeological Risk’. Under the scientific supervision of Professor Fabio Fava and the International Scientific Committee, Ecomondo 2020 will thus prove to be the perfect platform to focus on the European Green Deal and Italy’s contribution to it. The exhibition is thereby set to be a meeting place for scientists, business decision makers, associations and interest groups, as well as global enterprises catering for green business’ requirements.
Amongst the organisations attending include The European Commission, OECD, Conai, ITA (Italian Trade Agency), ARERA, Italian Biogas Consortium, Italian Consortium of Composters, Water Alliance, National Research Council, ENEA, ISPRA, Superior Health Institute, Fise Unicircular, Fise Assoambiente, The Foundation for Sustainable Development, Utilitalia, Italy’s Ministry for the Environment and Ministry of Economic Development, Confagricoltura, Federalimentare, Federchimica, Assobioplastiche and Legambiente. Additionally, there will be ‘national technological clusters’ showing how other countries are set to be essential supply chain and service partners in the green endeavour.
Due to the still possible effects of the coronavirus, the exhibition and public meeting areas of the exhibition have been re-planned for ‘safe business’ (https://www.iegexpo.it/en/safebusiness) to provide maximum safety for exhibitors, visitors and staff. The organisers of Ecomondo have in the meantime implemented ‘distanced’ communication channels via digital connections such as ‘Connect, Talk and Share’ which began in May.
Whether the subject is continental or national policies, utilities or sustainable technologies, Ecomondo 2020 will provide information and networking opportunities for the latest in green issues and developments.
