Enel and Intesa Sanpaolo strengthen commitment to the Circular Economy


Enel and Intesa Sanpaolo have pledged to strengthen their commitment to the continuous improvement of Italian companies in innovation, competitiveness and environmental performance by promoting the Circular Economy, an approach which allows for these goals, which are highly complementary, to be pursued.


With this aim in mind, Enel and Intesa Sanpaolo were the promoters of an event held on November 29 at the Confindustria headquarters, which opened with speeches by the Minister of the Environment Gian Luca Galletti, and member of the European Parliament, Simona Bonafè.


During the initiative, which received sponsorship from the Ministries of the Environment and of Economic Development, Enel and Intesa Sanpaolo, together with Novamont, Costa Crociere, the Salvatore Ferragamo Group, Bulgari, Fater and Eataly, signed the Manifesto for the Circular Economy which involves, as a lead company for each sector, a major player company of the Made in Italy brand that has gone international and is already strongly committed to this economy.


The Circular Economy aims to transform processes and redesign products and services, promoting a departure from the traditional divisions between different industrial sectors, as well as a greater synergy between companies. Innovation and sustainability therefore constitute integral elements of business and a strategic choice for competitiveness, also as far as combating climate change is concerned.
