(Teleborsa) – “The National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR) clearly illustrates the Government’s commitment to finance railway infrastructures, therefore to enhance sustainable mobility, but I also consider it interesting to highlight how we will build these infrastructures. In addition to the concentration of investments, we will in fact face a close comparison with the territories that will be crossed by the works, focusing on the social sustainability of these investments “. These are the words – according to FS News, the information portal of the State Railways – ofCEO and general manager of RFI (FS Group) Vera Fiorani on the occasion of his speech on Radio Radicale, in the program “High Sustainability” by ASviS – Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development, which saw the participation of Minister of Sustainable Infrastructure and Mobility Enrico Giovannini he was born in ANCE president Gabriele Buia. At the center of the comparison the infrastructures and railway mobility as a driving force for Italy’s environmental, economic and social development in the post-pandemic, in line with the issues related to the UN 2030 Agenda.
“Stakeholders and interested communities – continued theCEO of RFI – they will have a space of expression on the numerous very large projects that we are developing, and which in turn will be subjected to a public debate and a comparison that the Government has strongly desired with the subjects directly or indirectly involved in the work, therefore also with who, for example, will not be directly affected by the route, but will still be interested in knowing how that infrastructural work can be connected with that territory “.
During the broadcast, the issue of sustainable infrastructures was addressed starting from the final balance of the first seven months of activity of the Government and MIMS, which lay the foundations for the strategies to be implemented in the next ten years, and of the Infrastructure Annex to the Document of economy and finance (DEF) 2021. The protagonist is rail transport and its comparison with other modes: where mobility, as a whole, contributes 25% to polluting emissions in Europe, rail transport weighs only 0 on that slice, 5%.
“Overall – highlights FS News – they are 62 billions of investments made by Mims to be used in the coming years for sustainable infrastructures and mobility, 56% of these destined for the Southern Italy. Resources that will also serve to reduce by 38% the indicator of social inequality that penalizes our south today. And in investing these resources, largely included in the PNRR, great attention will go to the maximum sharing of projects and to the conduct of interventions with the territories, with local communities and with all stakeholders. So that the social sustainability of transparency, inclusion, accessibility and enhancement of the places and people involved is associated with economic and environmental sustainability “.
