Italy 'top green economy in Europe'

States General of Green Economy at Ecomondo Expo

(ANSA) - Rimini, November 8 - Italy is the leading green economy in Europe, and green technology could be a leading driver to help the country's economic development, according to a statement released by the Ecomondo Green Technologies Expo that opened on Tuesday and runs through Friday.
    An analysis conducted by the Rome-based Sustainable Development Foundation found that, although Italy bested the green economies of Germany, the UK, France, and Spain, it still has a "poor perception on an international level".
    Italy was ranked by analysing eight strategic categories, including greenhouse gas emissions, renewables, recycling and eco-innovation.
    The information was presented as part of the States General of the Green Economy taking place at Ecomondo, promoted by the National Council of the Green Economy and made up of 64 business organisations that represent the green economy in Italy, in collaboration with the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Economic Development.
