GreenItaly 2020: Ratti among the sustainable companies

Ratti has been included in the eleventh edition of GreenItaly 2020, the report on the Green Economy published, as every year, by Symbola, the Italian Quality Foundation and UnionCamere, with the patronage of the Ministry of the Environment.

With 77,691 companies, Lombardy is in first place in Italy in the ranking regional by absolute number of companies that have invested, or will invest within the year, in green technologies, “as the best response to the crisis we are going through, thus demonstrating that we can lead an Italy ready for recovery found” as the report itself mentions.

GreenItaly is a report conducted annually on the value of the Green Economy that tells how Italy has been able to take up the great environmental challenges in the field of innovation and research, developing economic value for companies and the country.

Since 2010 “GreenItaly” is an indispensable tool for knowing numbers, territories and sectors of the Italian green economy, but above all to analyze and understand the leading role that Made in Italy can play in the market international by focusing on sustainability.

We will hug again

This year, made of problems and obstacles, let us understand the importance of relationships, expressed through a simple hug or a handshake: all gestures, that before the first lockdown, were taken for granted but now are more like a illusion.

For sure, we will  get back to normal but, in the meantime, among facemasks, sanitizing gel and restricted meetings the only way to express our feelings is through a greeting card, a little thought or a simple whatsapp voicemail. Unfortunately pixel can’t be touch, but technology is useful to let us relive a moment and bring up our memories or emotions.  Nothing is better to strengthen a relationship, but then…we will hug again.

New year’s colors: ultimate gray and illuminating.

On one side, the reassuring shade of ultimate gray while on the other the energy released from the Illuminating yellow. This, the decision of the Pantone Colour Institute, that also this year, traced the path of 2021 essence in fashion, accessories and next future design.

Pantone 13-0647 illuminating is a yellow in its more shining tone, warm and intense like a sunbeam, while pantone 17-5104 ultimate gray is like the colour of pebbles on a beach or those natural elements with their innate resilience and ability to resist time.

The mix of these two colours, only apparently apart, will show how even opposite elements may give birth and express the spirit of the next 12 months of 2021. Concrete and tough months but at the same time, warm and full of confidence to express all the energy and positivity that we all deserve.
