The European Green Deal is key to achieve emission neutrality on the continent, develop the circular economy and promote sustainable development. There is no doubt about the European commitment to decarbonise the economy, however, it is necessary to define the most efficient way to achieve it. Today we are witnessing two revolutions that are transforming the world we live in: the digital revolution and the ecological transition. The correct synchronisation of actions aimed at promoting this Twin Transition: GREEN + DIGITAL, can be the most effective method to guarantee the future of our society, optimising the protection of the environment and achieving sustainable and fair economic growth for all.
