• Italian Exhibition Group´s digital event on 30th and 31st May to give continuity to the debate on energy and ecological transition
• Ecomondo, K.EY, Tecna, IBE and DPE together for an overall vision of the evolutionary scenarios within green supply chains

Rimini (Italy), 26th May 2023 - A two-day event to introduce the latest energy and ecological transition scenarios: decarbonisation, circular economy, water emergency and new skills to speed up change. These are the themes that will feature in the first Digital Green Week of 2023, Circular Economy and Energy Transition: the road to decarbonisation, organised by Italian Exhibition Group for 30th and 31st May. A fully online event that will allow the entire series of talks to be followed remotely. With experts from the academic, industrial and institutional worlds. The first of two introductory events, in May and September, that groups all the events in the Italian Exhibition Group´s green&tech sector together on a single platform.

Designed for national and international communities, the Digital Weeks come into being thanks to GTI - GreenTech Insights, the digital hub that unites all Italian Exhibition Group´s green&technology events: Ecomondo - The Green Technology Expo, K.EY - The Energy Transition Expo, Tecna - International Exhibition of Technologies and Supplies for Surfaces, IBE - Intermobility and Bus Expo and DPE - Distributed Power Europe. A tool to keep all the players of the four events connected and increase opportunities for dialogue and interchange with digital content that can be used during and beyond the exhibition period.

In the May edition, Ecomondo will focus on the green economy, K.EY - The Energy Transition Expo will deal with the topics of energy transition and renewables while IBE Intermobility and Bus Expo will highlight the importance of sustainable transport and tourism, providing two completely free informative days.

On the first day, Ecomondo will open with The new Packaging legislation: the key role of the waste management industry, an appointment regarding legislation on packaging and packaging waste, organised by FEAD (European Waste Management Association). This will be followed by the event promoted by Kyoto Club entitled Water as a common good: protection and efficient use of water resources, a topic that the rainfall management emergency currently affecting our country has made even more prominent.
The webinar Living Matter: the docufilm on circular economy and WEEE will provide a chance for Erion (the most important Italian system of extended producer responsibility in the management of waste from electronic and tobacco products) to explain the principle that inspired the production of the film made in collaboration with Libero Produzione: finding simple ways to raise the public´s awareness on daily behaviours that can make the ecological transition tangible. During Decarbonising Transport - 2030, the Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development will present the position paper drawn up from the decarbonisation targets agreed at European level, with particular reference to the Renewable Energy Sources Directive review and the forthcoming National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP) review integrated with the RepowerEU Plan.

On the same day, K.EY - The Energy Transition Expo and the Green Building Council Italia will focus on Synergies and innovative approaches to NZEB (Nearly Zero Energy Building) constructions.

On the second day, during the talk entitled Circular Economy: the next steps towards implementing the strategy, the Ecomondo Scientific Committee and Intesa Sanpaolo´s Innovation Centre will discuss the next steps to be taken to unleash the Circular Economy transition potential and turn it into a flow with systemic impact. Analysing the role of measuring ESG performance and constant training in the double transition will be the focus of Reporting and New Skills for Circularity, organised by Reconstruction in Ukraine should be green: energy efficiency, decarbonisation, environmental technologies and products, organised by All Ukrainian NGO Living Planet, will outline practical steps for implementing the infrastructure reconstruction projects in Ukraine made necessary by Russia´s large-scale invasion and inspired by the Build Back Better principle, in line with the sustainability goals of the European Green Deal. Also on 31st May, the Foundation for Sustainable Development, as part of IBE, will present opportunities related to on demand transit services, in which small buses move on routes and according to timetables established on the requests of passengers during ´We´ll Call´: the advantages of Demand Responsive Transit (DRT) platforms. K.EY, on the other hand, will turn the spotlight onto ´Offshore Wind Power: interactions with local organisations´, an event organised by ANEV in collaboration with Gianni Silvestrini, Scientific Director of Kyoto Club, who will be tasked with the concluding remarks.

The entire GreenTech Insights community boasts over 200,000 profiled companies, more than 2,500 exhibitors, 79,000 followers, over 150,000 attendances and a network of over 100 national and international associations.
