Thu 16 Nov 2017

Event description

Integrate sustainability into corporate values ​​and transform it into a competitive advantage. This is the objective to which the European Union aims with Directive 2014/95 / EU, implemented by Italy with Legislative Decree 254/16, which requires large companies of public interest (eg listed companies) to deposit, together with the budget, a non-financial statement to illustrate the actions taken in relation to the environment, personnel, social impact, human rights, and the fight against corruption.

The seminar organized by CRIT aims to contribute to the debate concerning the integration of sustainability within the corporate strategy, with a particular focus on the role that innovation and new technologies can play in real-time monitoring of operating flows and performance, and therefore improve the quality of managerial decisions by combining the need for competitiveness with respect for the principles of corporate social responsibility.

In particular, the seminar intends to address the use of innovative tools and methodologies to measure the sustainability of companies through economic, environmental and social performance indicators that can also be extended to the entire value chain.

The seminar is part of the activities of the European project NUCLEI of which CRIT is the coordinator, and which has among its objectives the creation of innovation clusters among the countries participating in the Interreg Central Europe program, in order to promote more effective international value chains , especially in the advanced manufacturing sectors.

The seminar will be moderated by Daniele Vacchi, Director of Corporate Communications of IMA Spa and vice-president of the Friends of the Museum of Industrial Heritage.

Before the seminar begins, guests can take part in a guided tour of the Museum of Industrial Heritage in Bologna.
