The courses organized in cooperation with the Ministry of Science and Technology always pay great attention to the role of industries in China's sustainable development. What the forthcoming training on "Innovation of Enterprises and Green Technologies" tries to underline is that when innovation and protection of the environment run in parallel, companies can gain many advantages from the economic and social point of view.
The delegation that will visit Italy between September 6 and 17 is composed by 27 participants selected among provincial science and technology departments and centers for technological innovation. They will have the chance to see in first person many companies operating in very different sectors (mechanics, furniture, paper, boilers and steam engines, food), which have in common the objective of reducing the impact of the production processes or final products on the environment, through the deployment or creation of innovative technologies. At the same time the participants will be introduced to the main policies promoted by the Italian Government for the support of clean technologies and the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), one of the tools that companies worldwide can apply to understand which steps of their production cycle they can improve to reduce their burden on the environment.
