Companies now have a more important social role, they must facilitate the progress and good condition of the society they serve, according to Alessio Menegazzo, Head of Sustainability and Public Affairs at Enel Romania.
“Sustainability is no longer just nice to have, it must be the basis of the investment and development plan of any company that wants to survive. Sustainability is the basis of a company’s development,” he said during the online conference SUSTAINABILITY IN BUSINESS – Practice what you Preach.
“We need to pay attention in avoid the past mistakes of European countries that implemented renewable energy solutions with technologies and know-how delivered by non-European countries, such as China. Through Green Deal, EU tries to balance this error so that it can become the world’s largest hub in developing renewable energy technology and know-how. Otherwise, we risk in losing the competitive advantage and the industrial revolution’s lead,” he concluded.
