Environmental Communication from UNIC
In December 2003, in the framework of the Italian Presidency of the European Union, Milan hosted the 9th Conference of the Parties on Climate Changes, the most important international summit on environment after the one in Johannesburg in Autumn 2002. The conference was organised by the UN and the Italian Ministry of Environment.
On December 12th, 2003, closing date of the summit, the Italian government presented the environmental policies of the Italian tanning sector as an international example of excellence in environmental management. Contents of the first Environmental Report of the Italian tanning industry and results of efforts and investments of the past years were presented, together with possible future objectives.
The event represented a part of wider strategies of environmental communication, which aim at the valorisation of the ethic and environmental content of leather correctly produced and at the comparison with international competitors.
