Innovative Solutions for Green Manufacturing

The latest issue of Machines Italia examines how global manufacturers can benefit from sustainable manufacturing practices, as promoted and supported by Italian machinery makers.

We are pleased to have the President of the Italian Trade Commission, Ambassador Umberto Vattani provide the introduction of this edition.

With the world of business and industry facing challenges on every front, we have attempted to present a comprehensive array of topics, and we thank you for your interest in these diverse articles.

Sustainable manufacturing encompasses a variety of activities and assets, from green manufacturing practices, “green” machines and renewable energy sources, to a renewed emphasis on recyclable technologies and tactics. The responsible company—seeking to reduce its carbon footprint and maximize energy savings—needs to under-stand which options will produce the greatest green benefit. With the influx of high-quality Italian machinery that is intentionally engineered to provide green benefits, there is a stunning variety of choices available to the North American market.

We suggest as you reflect on today’s choices to consider the broad spectrum of Italian companies that offer not only excellent machinery, but also superior services that can help your company reach all its sustainable goals.

The Italian Trade Commission works with 14 professional associations and organizations that represent major Italian machinery manufacturing industries. We invite you to use our resources available on the soon-to-be redesigned Machines Italia website (, which promises to be more user-friendly and dynamically engaging, offering you a breadth of assistance, options, tools, and information to aid you in your decision-making process.
