Italy is a Southern Europe country with a very notorious nature. Within the country ecosystems we found the mountainous regions high in the Alps, coastal waters, temperate woodlands, freshwater river systems and shrub lands in the southern part of the country. Italy is largely unsuitable for farming despite a relatively hospitable climate for humans. The country also has no major deposits of coal, oil, minerals or other natural resources. For this reason, Italy must be a net importer of natural resources to meet the demands of its population.
Italy compared to the other European countries have a quite strong performance in the eco-innovation scoreboard index. Italy is the 9th ranked country in EU28. Italy’s eco-innovation is characterized by the increase of recycling activities (e.g. in textile, mineral oil, packaging, construction waste, etc.), a strong R&D (Research and Development) performance in water pollution abatement, waste management and renewable energy areas.
As a state that is recovering from a recent global economic collapse, Italy will be looking to incorporate green initiatives into its economic policies. These measures are expected to include: a tax code more aware of negative externalities (“greening” the tax code), expanding environmental- related markets, green trade policies and investments in green technology.
Italy has developed over the years Intelligent Transport Systems like the CCISS which receives, processes, stores and sends out to the public all info-mobility information (accidents, delays, static events (road works) and dynamic events (congestion, meteorological events, etc.) disturbing the regular flow. This helps to avoid time waste due to the congestion and to reduce environmental impact.
In general, Italy uses ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems) as a key tool for achieving integration between transport mode and networks both within Italy and between Italy and major international routes, particularly in Europe and the nearby Mediterranean.
Italy compromises to keep working on his environmental policies, to keep innovating in the area of eco-innovation and to develop more Intelligent Transport Systems, with the aim of saving the environment, to bring benefits to the health of Italian citizens and the world and to bring a "green" economic growth.
