The latest investigation by carbon trading found a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. The reasons are different and not all of them relate to the policies of sustainability. There is talk of relocation, crisis and an Italian bureaucracy impossible to manage, especially in the field of green economy.
The annual survey of EcoWay, a consulting company active in the carbon trading, highlighted positive data about the trend of greenhouse gas emissions of Italy. According to these studies, the industrial plants located in Tuscany produced a lower percentage of carbon dioxide, fully respecting the limits imposed by the European Union.
According to the EcoWay report, some regions such as Veneto, Piedmont, Lombardy and Trentino are particularly virtuous in respecting the limits of greenhouse gas emissions set by Brussels but the reasons do not seem to be linked to eco-sustainability policies.
The news contained in the reports EcoWay they are positive but may hide alarming data. The virtuosity of these regions, especially when it comes to the more industrialized ones, is accompanied by a sharp decline in industrial production and therefore, according to MEP Oreste Rossi, it would be hidden "A strong push to relocate".
That of relocation it is a risky phenomenon for every Region and for the entire Nation. Companies, rather than operating in Italy, may prefer to relocate their production activities to other regions or states. The production functions of Italian companies could be totally delocalized to places considered more "convenient ".
According to Mr Oreste Rossi, it is the Italian bureaucracy that strongly affects this phenomenon, these are the words reported in a note: "In Italy, one of the main burdens for businesses is the high cost of bureaucracy, which often forces our companies to relocate ".
Reduce the CO2 emissions, of course, but not to the detriment of production. Crisis, heavy bureaucracy and penalties are putting Italian industries on the ropes. Penalties to be paid because companies that do not comply with the emission limits are fined with 100 euros for each ton of CO2 not covered.
“If we want to prevent our industrial system from collapsing - concluded Rossi - we must not support the crazy EU environmental policy that would like to reduce emissions by 30% by 2020 and even 85% by 2050 ".
