Environmental sustainability and the national production system: these are the key topics for the discussion between the Minister for the Environment Corrado Clini and the Chief Operating Officer of Telecom Italia Marco Patuano, during the “Businesses and environmental policy. Telecom Italia, sustainable innovation" event.
The meeting, moderated by the editor of Linkiesta Jacopo Tondelli, will take place on Wednesday 10 October at 11 a.m. and will be broadcast in live streaming on the websites www.telecomitalia.com, www.linkiesta.it and on http://eraclito.telecomitaliahub.it. At the end of the debate there will be a special Twitter Time, during which Minister Clini and Marco Patuano will answer questions put by the Web from their respective Twitter accounts @corradoclini and @marcopatuano; the hashtag of the event is #CliniPatuano.
The initiative comes within the activities set up by Telecom Italia to promote environmentally sustainable practices and follows the agreement that the Group has already signed with the Ministry, aimed at promoting projects to measure, contain and neutralize its carbon footprint (the greenhouse gas emissions generated mainly by the consumption of electricity from fossil fuels).
Telecom Italia has undertaken a number of actions on matters of sustainability and the reporting of its own impact on the environment and the climate and is present in the leading global sustainability indexes. The agreement signed in May 2012 with the Ministry for the Environment confirms the strategic relevance these topics have for the Group and the importance of promoting an open dialogue on the matter through debate with the Ministry itself.
