Green Network, one of the main Italian providers of electricity and gas, has launched a partnership with the National Chamber of Fashion and with consultancy and communication agency supporting brands in their sustainability choices Eco-Age.
This is the first partnership ever launched by a player of the energy sector with big names of the fashion field.
The agreement was presented in Milan, during a press conference at Chateau Monfort Hotel, attended by founder and executive Vice President of Green Network Sabrina Corbo, President of the National Chamber of Italian Fashion Carlo Capasa and founder of Eco-Age Livia Firth.
Consistent with the green mission of this Italian firm, Green Network has decided to support fashion brands which represent a symbol of Made in Italy and distinguish themselves for their concrete effort towards sustainability choices.
As part of this cross-sector collaboration, the roman company founded by Sabrina Corbo and Piero Saulli has signed a “green” agreement with the National Chamber of Italian Fashion. This collaboration includes an advantageous offer of electric energy and gas from 100% green sources for all the associates, both in Italy and in the United Kingdom.
The press conference was also an opportunity to launch “Green Network Store” (http://greennetworkstore.com/), the new e-commerce that will be offering the possibility of buying and selling ‘green’ goods and services.
The collaboration announced today had already been introduced on the occasion of the third edition of the Green Carpet Fashion Awards Italia, an event dedicated to the best sustainability projects in the fashion and luxury industries, with Green Network as main partner of the initiative.
“We have signed a sharing partnership in support of eco-sustainability, together with the Chamber of Fashion and Eco-Age. In fact, I believe that only by combining our energies we can make a difference and play our active part for a shift in the sector. This agreement is a source of satisfaction for the attention we pay to eco-sustainability. At Green Network we would like to reward all the firms that not only place this issue at the core of their business, but also practically show their commitment. Our prize is our 100% GREEN energy offer for all members of the Chamber of Fashion, so that they can benefit from a privileged discount to support these shared values. If we really want to support the environment, everyone has to do their share.”, commented Founder and Vice President of Green Network Sabrina Corbo.
“In CMI effort towards sustainability, we focus our strategy on practical and measurable efforts, as shown from our documents and on the occasion of the three editions of the Green Carpet Fashion Awards. For this reason, we are happy to work with partners sharing our values and journey towards a more sustainable future”, has said President of the National Chamber of Italian Fashion Carlo Capasa.
“It has been a real pleasure for us to have a partner in the alternative energy field for the first time ever, on the occasion of the Green Carpet Fashion Awards. I have always admired and respected Sabrina Corbo’s work and Green Network Energy. It’s a great honour for us to work together,” has declared founder of Eco-Age Livia Firth.
