Circular economy among the keys to the future of employment in Italy according to Sergio Costa: 1.6 million green places in the next 5 years.
Nearly two million green jobs within the next 5 years. This is stated by the Minister of the Environment Sergio Costa, who spoke yesterday afternoon during a webinar on Facebook organized by Ilaria Fontana (M5S deputy). During the meeting there was a discussion of circular economy and the right to repair and reuse.
Just shortly after the settlement of Sergio Costa al Ministry of the Environment competence on the circular economy was entrusted to the minister (in 2018). Since then several things have changed, Costa recalls, so much so that in the near future there will be evident developments on the green employment front.
In this regard the same Environment Minister underlined the need for Italian companies, over the next 5 years, to rely on workers with green skills:
Over the next five years, companies will be required to possess green skills by over 1.6 million workers (approximately 62% of the requirement). It is a clear demonstration of the paradigm shift, from the linear economy to the circular economy. Today we know the cultural, political and governmental conditions.
Then referring to the creation in 2020 of the Directorate-General for the Circular Economy, Sergio Costa said:
This goes hand in hand with the EU framework, to which the director general of the ministry Laura D’Aprile referred. The Fontana bill demonstrates sensitivity in this direction.
The Minister of the Environment himself concluded underlining two further concepts, that of the EU regulation on taxonomy he was born in right to repair:
As part of the EU regulation on taxonomy, we have built green finance indices, including the index of the circularity of the matter: those who invest in it have a lower risk index. We are the first in Europe to apply all this on an experimental basis.
The right to reparation merges with the right to the circular economy. Today’s help must become tomorrow’s ordinary and this will also be possible thanks to the PNRR, the National Recovery and Resilience Plan, in which there is a large slice of the circular economy.
