CDP and the Italian Ministry of the Environment invest together combat climate change

Launch of the first Italian investment platform dedicated to fighting climate change in developing countries

Cassa depositi e prestiti and the Italian Environment Ministry renewed their collaboration in helping the environment with a new investment platform dedicated to international projects that support the adoption of alternative energy sources and combat climate change.

The Climate and Sustainable Development Italian Platform, the first Italian investment platform entirely dedicated to international environmental projects, in accordance with its sustainable development strategies, will encourage projects working to counter climate change in developing countries through the support of local companies involved working to lessen and adapt to climate change, with particular emphasis on micro, small and medium-sized businesses.

The Platform aims to achieve synergies between the resources available at national, European Union, and international levels over a medium-to-long-term horizon. The projects will be implemented adapting to the specific needs and characteristics of the countries where the operations take place, with the aim of creating collaboration between national and international subjects.
