Jeffrey Sachs: “Italy puts the world economy on the right track”

Great interest in the online forum on sustainability organised today by San Patrignano and Confindustria “We must see this pandemic crisis as a clear message to companies, corporations and governments. What we have done up to Covid is not good, we have not protected ourselves, we have destabilised the natural environment, we have created increasing inequality. In the post-Covid era, we will have to think about true sustainable development, with social inclusion and environmental sustainability as crucial elements”. World-renowned economist Jeffrey Sachs, director of Columbia University’s Earth Institute, was among the keynote speakers this morning at the third edition of the Sustainable Economy Forum promoted by San Patrignano and Confindustria and moderated by Sebastiano Barisoni, deputy executive director of Radio 24. We need a collaborative and cooperative approach among countries towards a common vision of sustainable growth, guided by investments on the pillars of the European Green Deal, the approach […]

Intesa Sanpaolo supports the San Patrignano Foundation

For years the San Patrignano Foundation has been a mainstay in the prevention and treatment of addictions. In these particularly difficult times, Intesa Sanpaolo has accepted the Foundation’s request for support over the next three years, and will in this way be helping – in addition to the many other charities the Bank supports – a foundation that is clearly not only useful but indeed necessary for our society. Even during the extraordinary emergency we are currently experiencing, Intesa Sanpaolo has continued to be a keystone in providing support to the Italian healthcare system and social projects, in addition to its enormous commitment in supporting the economy. Intesa Sanpaolo has been able to introduce this programme of initiatives because it has had the ability to be not only one of the soundest and most profitable banks in Europe but also one of the most attentive to combating poverty and reducing […]

Confindustria – Social responsibility and sustainable economy must become a new economic paradigm, an antidote to social disintegration, a further piece of business culture and an impulse towards a different business model

Confindustria has been the Sustainable Economy Forum’s strategic partner since the first edition in 2018. Confindustria’s presence underlines the commitment to strengthening the dialogue between national and international social actors. It also testifies the entrepreneurial system’s strategic role in achieving the objectives of environmental, economic, and social sustainability. Confindustria strongly believes in The Sustainable Economy Forum project because Italian and European industry must aim for a world rebirth based on a modern idea of development, achieving important objectives through the key principles of sustainability and social responsibility: increasing productivity, promoting growth, fighting poverty and inequality. These are the foundations to build a new international economic agenda. While the debates focus on crucial issues such as health, social finance, digital transformation, innovation, environment and development, the collaboration with San Patrignano seeks to give substance to ideas, transforming them into concrete alliances and projects. An example is the Memorandum which was born […]

San Patrignano – Sustainability and social responsibility for the common good and the well-being of the next generations: it is urgent to change the models of development and relationship

One year ago San Patrignano was going to host the third edition of the Sustainable Economy Forum, when the Covid-19 pandemic and the lockdown forced the whole of Italy to stop. And our annual event with it. The Coronavirus emergency has also forced San Patrignano community to change habits, to redefine activities and relationships, both internally and externally. Even before the first restrictions were imposed by decree, with foresight San Patrignano decided to make some difficult choices, and throughout the lockdown the doors of the community remained closed. With a great sense of responsibility, the young women and men in the community interpreted the new concept of distance, which was physical but not social, with a true civic sense, as attention to others and mutual respect; with the hearts and thoughts of all constantly participating in the suffering and pain of those who were, and unfortunately still today are, facing […]
