INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON RESOURCE EFFICIENCY
ROME, MARCH 30, 2017
From, 1 pm to 6 pm
CONFEDERATION OF ITALIAN INDUSTRY (CONFINDUSTRIA)
With the support of
GLOBAL BUSINESS COALITION (GBC)
Present trends are forcing today’s societies to reconsider the way they produce and consume. Meeting demand for natural resources in a sustainable way is one of the biggest global challenges of our time. The industry and business can enable consumers to meet their needs in a more sustainable way and are key solution providers for making our economies more resource efficient and circular.
Confindustria, along with the Global Business Coalition is engaged in a process of informing the G7 and G20 policy-makers of the forward trends within industries to support the development of an integrated international policy framework that benefits from good practices and experiences of how businesses can promote resource efficiency activities globally.
Founded in 1910, Confindustria is the main organisation representing Italian manufacturing and services companies. Over 150,000 companies of all sizes, employing over 5.5 million workers are voluntary members of the organisation. In its by-laws, Confindustria advocates contributing to Italy’s economic and social growth by cooperating with Italian, European and international political institutions and economic, social and cultural organisations.
Established in 2012, the Global Business Coalition (formerly known as the B20 Coalition), brings together leading independent business associations from the major world economies and advocates on behalf of more than 6.8 million small, medium and large companies. By providing a unique link between governments, relevant international institutions and business communities, the Global Business Coalition has become instrumental in representing the voice of enterprises within the G20 process and other major international fora.
