Message to Stakeholders

stakeholders
Nowadays, sustainability is not just a "choice”: it is a crucial and necessary way of existing. The "sustainable native" generation knows this well, as their attention to the environment is a common practice and unwavering belief. This is also a strong belief of the UN, which has set up the Agenda of Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs), and the European Union which, with the intention of carrying out an energy transition focusing on decarbonisation, has drawn up the Clean Energy Package to set a series of targets to be achieved by 2030. This is also understood by entrepreneurs like us, who have chosen a company strategy that brings together innovation and responsibility, in the knowledge that the future of business is linked to sustainable long-term growth.
