EU- ENHANCE PROJECT INTERNATIONAL MEETING AT SANT’ANNA SCHOOL ON ECO-MANAGEMENT eMAS SYSTEM AND CIRCULAR ECONOMY

The main aim of this 2-day meeting that took place at Sant’Anna School was to discuss strategies and best practices for the integration of EMAS environmental management system with circular economy tools.

The EU has made the circular economy a priority, and EMAS represents a valuable opportunity to achieve global competitiveness and sustainable economic growth. The members of the Ministries of the Environment of Spain, Austria, Estonia, and Czech Republic and representatives of the Italian Agenzia Regionale per la Protezione dell’Ambiente dell’Emilia Romagna who attended the workshop in Pisa highlighted that the efficient use of resources is currently the focus of a large number of policies which are acknowledging the need to improve economic resilience and the consumer demand for more sustainable products.

The Institute of Management of Sant’Anna School is a member of the Interreg-Europe 4-year ENHANCE project, an alliance of 6 research centres in Spain, Austria, Estonia, Italy and Czech Republic.

During this conference in Pisa, the attendees visited the “Consorzio Aquarno” leather manufacturing plant in Santa Croce Sull’Arno (Pisa) which is embracing the Circular Economy and is considered a model of sustainability in implementing the EMAS eco-management “best practice”. In this task they are supported by Sant’Anna School, which has recently developed several programs for organisations on the path to a positive, circular economy.
