An agreement has been signed between the Italian Ministry of Environment and the Benetton Group to reduce the environmental impact of the textile and fashion chain.
The Benetton Group has selected its production site in Tunisia as a reference for the start of this ambitious program for the rational use of energy and rationalization of CO2.
The agreement was signed by Minister Corrado Clini and President of the Plant, Alessandro Benetton.
The project “gives value to the Italian competence and expertise and falls within the framework of international agreements under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change,” said Minister Clini.
The agreement will also measure the energy consumption and environmental impact, and “represents a commitment taken by the plant to reduce the environmental impact of products,” he added.
“We have started from Tunisia because this country is the benchmark of Italian companies in North Africa,” Clini also said.
