Ecomondo 2009

Ecomondo 2009Ministry for Gozo officials have again this year visited the Ecomondo fair which was held in Rimini Italy between the 28 and 31 October 2009.

Ecomondo is the largest annual expo for the environment and sustainability industry which endeavours to meet the global challenge of profitably combining development and sustainability, environment and energy, globalization and environmental protection. It represents a concerted effort to reduce harmful emissions by implementing new systems and technologies, and reducing our dependence on fossil fuels. It provides a forum for networking and exchange between key market players and administrations.

Among the themes which the fair organisation focused on this year were conscious growth and purchasing, eco-design, the ‘new green deal’, sustainable technologies and social responsibility.
