On the day when it was discovered that three large companies were benefiting from the environment by using garbage to produce raw materials, the 2017 report from ASviS, the Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development, confirms that in our country “the situation is deteriorating significantly” in regards to “protecting, restoring and promoting a sustainable use of the ecosystem.”
This is the 15th of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of the U.N. Agenda 2030, promoted in Italy by ASviS, a network that brings together 176 institutions, foundations, associations, trade unions and businesses. On Thursday morning, ASviS presented its 2017 report, explained by its spokesman, former Minister Enrico Giovannini, and introduced by President Pierluigi Stefanini, president of Unipol financial group.
In a general framework that “confirms the unsatisfactory position of our country in relation to other OECD countries” (in 30th position since “no SDG appears in line with the objectives”) the chapters on environmental issues are among the most negative, especially from the energy point of view.
