In fact, Eolo pursues a positive impact on society and the environment with this project. “With this in mind, the company is committed to responding to the points of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In particular, point 9, which concerns the creation of resilient infrastructures for an inclusive and sustainable industrialization process, to which EOLO responds by developing the offer of a stable and widespread connection to facilitate social and work inclusion; and point 11, which concerns the contribution to making cities sustainable and inclusive, to which we contribute by trying to reverse the process of wild urbanization thanks to attention to small municipalities “.
