“There is someone in Europe who thinks that the ecological transition can end in 2 years. The ecological transition will work if our companies, our production systems, but also professionals, have the time to adapt to the transformation. Otherwise it will not be. ‘a Transition, it will be a shock “. This was stated by Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio, speaking at a conference in Ischia on “Export and made in Italy”.
Di Maio: “Europe thinks that the ecological transition can end in 2 years, risks for employment and companies”
“Yes, we will produce a decrease in emissions – continues Di Maio – but that would also correspond to a loss of employment, to the closure of companies. And we cannot afford this, especially in Southern Italy where the Transition is. ecological needs, especially in this phase, adequate incentives for the digital transition, for the transfer of know-how to companies that must have time to adapt “.
Green deal, Di Maio: “Italy needs more time”
“We are not asking to block this process of the European Green Deal – the minister then specifies – we are only asking for a time that will allow us to face the next few times with the force that we have never, never put aside in the worst moments. but time, and I say this because I want to send a message to all those who are operators in this sector who are worried “.
Green deal, for Italy at 350 billion euro sector risk. Giorgetti: “Death sentence”
Development Minister Giancarlo Giorgetti used harsher tones. Speaking yesterday in Bari at an event organized by the journalist Nicola Porro, he spoke of «some sectors at risk of death. It is a sort of determined euthanasia ». With the farewell of petrol cars imposed by the EU starting from 2035, Italy would see a sector worth 350 billion at risk. The entire supply chain is worth almost 20 percent of GDP and employs just under 1.3 million people. The components supply chain, which alone employs 278,000 workers, would be particularly impacted because electric cars have less complex motors and braking systems: the fate of many companies operating in the sector would therefore be closure. given that for 20 years the components have registered a positive balance of the trade balance of 5 billion.
Green deal, Lega: “The EU sacrifices companies on the altar of green ideology”
‘It is one thing to defend the environment, another is to sacrifice entire categories on the altar of green ideology and in an attempt to pursue unrealistic goals: we express strong concern about the package of proposals presented by the EU on sustainability and emissions reduction for achieve the objectives set by the climate law “. Thus in a note the MEPs of the League, members of the Transport Commission, Marco Campomenosi (head of delegation), Paolo Borchia, Massimo Casanova.” Paying the heavy bill for Brussels’ short-sighted choices – the MEPs observe – will be citizens, workers, businesses, with loss of competitiveness and social consequences that we cannot afford: the alarm cry launched by trade associations, primarily Conftrasporto-Confcommercio, representing a sector that affects less than others on pollution and which over the years has invested a lot to keep up with the ecological transition, is fully sharable you “.
“We ask the EU for a more concrete and realistic attitude, not unattainable goals that translate into new taxes, deindustrialization and measures that penalize the European production sector. While the continent is trying to recover from the extremely difficult months of the crisis and the pandemic, burying its ‘economy and penalizing businesses is not only wrong – they conclude – it is unacceptable’ ‘.
