September 2020, the countdown to Earth collapse has begun in Manhattan.
Just under eight years to try and stop climate change, if we go beyond that, there will be a point of no return.

Sustainability in the Treccani Encyclopaedia:
“A condition of development that ensures that the needs of the present generation are met without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
Global warming: understanding it and how to make a difference
Global warming is largely caused by us humans, and rising temperatures are only part of the problem. It is a gradual rise in the temperature of the atmosphere, linked to an increase in the concentration of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the air, and it is now certain that we humans have played a large part in causing it by burning huge amounts of fossil fuels to produce energy.
Global warming is often used as a synonym for climate change. In reality, rising temperatures are only one aspect of the ongoing climate crisis. Periods of overheating and cooling are part of the nature of our planet, but what we are witnessing today is an unprecedented phenomenon: man-made climate change.
Italy is warming up twice as fast as the average for the planet, in line with IPCC forecasts, which see the Mediterranean area as a real hot spot for climate change. In addition, extreme weather events are on the increase due to the greater energy stored in the atmosphere.
In reality, climate change is not a problem for the Earth or Nature, which will reorganize itself, but it is a problem that will afflict us human beings, who have developed our own civilization on climate stability and have a limited capacity to adapt.
How can we reverse course to help contain global warming?
We should – all – start by committing ourselves in three directions:
Cutting greenhouse gas emissions by switching to renewable energies
Removing COշ already in the atmosphere by increasing reforestation
Reducing our ecological footprint, for example by starting with our food,
consuming local and not intensively farmed products
According to a study by the Milan Polytechnic conducted in 64 Italian cities, 64% of carbon dioxide production comes from heating systems in buildings, traffic accounts for 10% and industrial activities for 26%.
Each of us can do something concrete.
Energy, a key sector
By 2040, Italy will be able to produce 100% renewable energy, use 50% less energy and cut climate-altering emissions by 90%.
Energy is among the sectors most sensitive to climate change and global warming:
on the one hand, its production from fossil fuels is one of the main causes of climate-changing emissions, thus requiring a change in energy production models towards 100% clean energy from renewable sources by 2040
on the other hand, energy consumption itself will vary considerably as a result of climate change
One of the areas in which we invest most is energy saving.
Our company mission is to guide those who decide to go in this direction, in the choice of the best possible product, which guarantees an efficient and truly environmentally sustainable system.
Choosing clean energy to power our lives is one of the steps that, in practice, can contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases and limit their effects on our planet and our health.
Not only Economic Savings, but also Ecological Savings.
Having a light ecological footprint means being aware that resources are not inexhaustible.
