Ecomondo

Ecomondo is the leading Euro-Mediterranean area green and circular economy expo. An international event with an innovative format that brings together all sectors of the circular economy in a single platform: from material and energy recovery to sustainable development.

Running at the same time as Ecomondo is Key Energy, the expo of “energy for the climate”, energy-efficiency solutions and applications and renewable energy.
Since 2009, Ecomondo has also offered an ideal model of the Città Sostenibile (Sustainable City), in an exhibition space demonstrating models of urbanisation, technological solutions, projects, and mobility schemes that permit improvements in the population’s quality of life and promote sustainable territorial development.

Italy is among the leading countries in Europe in the green and circular economy, in particular in energy efficiency, waste recycling and resource productivity. For this reason, Ecomondo is a reference point in the international panorama, where all the leading companies of the sector can meet and discover the trends, innovations and new technologies and exchange views with sector professionals.
