About responsible economy…
The economy as we have known it since the Second World War, even in its transformations, now shows an irreconcilable incompatibility with those needs for justice, equity and social and environmental sustainability that a truly democratic society recognizes as inalienable. Something in the conscience of those who are called to act is changing. More and more companies around the world are pursuing, or declaring that they want to pursue, in addition to profits, objectives of positive impact on people, the territory and the environment. Albeit with difficulty, new models of economics, business and organization are emerging that are capable of generating and guaranteeing positive results for the well-being of employees, customers, the environment and the social context in which they operate: a mutatis mutandis re-edition of the admirable Olivettian entrepreneurial model.

These are attempts to operate in compliance with environmental and social standards in order to maximize the positive impact on resources and people and thus generate, in the long term, processes of growth, not compromising and damaging the social and natural environment in which they operate. For this type of organization, training is fundamental: it is a lever of change that allows them to move from the current production model to a new cultural model, where respect, responsibility and solidarity are essential elements of their work.
