In Emilia Romagna arises the first Integrated Report of Italy of a Municipality
“The integrated Report of Sasso Marconi” is the title of the speech of Andrea Ragazzini during the Convention. The first Italian public Administration which has an Integrated Report is in Emilia Romagna, it’s a tool which enhances the real purpose of the administrative action, i.e. the creation of value inside the community of reference. The Report, written following the Framework of the International Integrated Reporting Council, brazes a new trail towards the management of the territory in sustainable way, because it has been realised by highlighting the correlations between the actions of the Municipality and the sustainable development goals (SDGs). This correlation is available in the whole Report, because the activity of Sasso Marconi Municipality incorporates in its own policy objectives the 17 goals of the Agenda 2030, paying particular attention to the support that the Municipality gives to achieve the Sustainable Development goals put in place by Emilia Romagna.
