Italy has been under the bus with the political and economic crisis. The nation is finally starting to recover from the disastrous effects of those events on the economy and the energy sector which was seen as dying is starting to take a new breath in the light of new administration.
Italy has been making slow progress to the energy sector. Italy has still not incorporated the waste to energy systems in its energy ecosystem and hence it deals with the waste in the conventional way which is now considered as a threat to the environment. Italy’s new plan to reduce the waste output will provide a 20-percent discount for vendors which will be passed onto consumers for products sold without packaging, ranging from food and household items to clothes and gifts. The goal of this plan to drastically reduce the amount of packaging materials that end up in Italian landfills, recycling plans, or incinerators. Environmentalists praised the plan as a modest but important step toward Italy’s environmental goals. The plan is part of the country’s so-called Climate Decree, which includes several aspects that are related to environmental protection but not directly related to confronting climate change. Parts of Italy have been plagued by trash collection issues in the past few years. Naples, for example, suffered from such severe trash collection problems in 2011 and 2012 which sparked the spread of disease in the city and the government had to deploy soldiers to the city to help resolve the problem.
So this new step towards an environment friendly approach can definitely help the nation to attract investors from the clean approach and sustainable life choices.
