In this perspective, PLEF has started with ISTAT a research protocol on Italian companies that will develop – over a three-year period – a survey of the main topics that discriminate the approach of individual businesses, then will link it to available cases in the statistical registers integrated with ISTAT surveys, to reach hypothesis of correlation between sustainability and competitiveness.

The final phase of this research will be the development of case studies, where the various combinations of sustainability and competitiveness will be investigated in terms of impact on the Equitable Sustainable Wellbeing of the communities, to verify the thesis that through sustainable approaches it’s possible to converge the objective of highest added value and highest quality of life.
