2024: THEMATIC COMMITTEE ON ENERGY AND SUSTAINABILITY
For 2024, the Chamber is announcing the creation of a thematic committee dedicated to energy and sustainability. This committee is crucial given the growing importance of these issues on the global stage. With the transition to cleaner energy sources, the committee will seek to discuss and share knowledge on sustainable practices, energy efficiency, emissions reduction and regulatory policies. The recent successful participation in OTC Rio 2023 solidifies the relevance of this committee, enabling the development of joint strategies for sustainable growth.
ENERGY SCENARIO: ITALY AND BRAZIL
Italy, the second most significant country in terms of renewable sources in the European Union, stands out with 19.4% of its domestic consumption coming from renewable sources. This commitment exceeds the European average of 17.7%. Brazil, with 47% of its energy matrix coming from renewable sources, stands out globally, being more than three times higher than the world average. These figures provide fertile ground for bilateral trade relations and sustainable partnerships between the two countries.
The participation of Italian companies in OTC 2023 and the creation of the thematic committee for 2024 demonstrate the joint commitment of the Italian-Brazilian Chamber to boosting innovation and sustainability in the energy sector, contributing to the economic and environmental development of both nations.
