The world has accustomed us to sudden and unexpected changes, as, for example, Covid and the war in Ukraine has shown us. Phenomena of great social, economic, and financial impact... in this context, the global community is committed to addressing the issue of global warming (but more in general the theme of sustainability in terms of ESG).
