Reti d’impresa ambientali e sviluppo eco-sostenibile a livello regionale

Giuseppe Garofalo, Giulio Guarini

Abstract


Le reti d’impresa che operano nel campo dell’efficienza energetica e dell’eco-sostenibilità del territorio possono innescare uno sviluppo sostenibile, innovativo e inclusivo e, per questa via, lo sviluppo locale. È questa l’ipotesi che ci si propone di verificare sulla base dei risultati di un’analisi econometrica che mostra i benefici della presenza di reti tra imprese in termini di riduzione dell’intensità energetica, di potenziamento della capacità innovativa e di impatto occupazionale, sempre a livello regionale.

 The inter-firm networks that operate in the field of energy efficiency and eco-sustainability of local territories can trigger sustainable, innovative and inclusive development. We aim to check this hypothesis through an econometric analysis for Italy at the regional level. Empirical results show a positive impact of green inter-firm networks in terms of reduction of energy intensity, enhancement of innovative capacity, and increase in the employment rates.
