Agreement CIB - UNICEB

17, Jun 2024

Encourage and stimulate the development of biogas and biomethane within the livestock sector, while contributing to the reduction of emissions and the ecological transition path, without neglecting the competitiveness of the sector. This is the common objective promoted by CIB-Italian Biogas Consortium and UNICEB-Italian Meat Supply Chain Union who have started a collaboration agreement signed at the CIB's Roman offices.
As part of the agreement, the CIB will collaborate with technical-scientific experience with the aim of accompanying livestock companies towards sustainability paths through the production of renewable energy, biogas and biomethane, using the investments envisaged by the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR).
"The agreement with UNICEB is an important strategic collaboration tool to promote sustainable solutions, such as the production of biogas and biomethane, in the Italian livestock sector. This partnership will allow us to combine skills and resources transversal to our production chains and promote employment of innovative technologies and virtuous practices, offering a concrete contribution to the transition path of our companies. We are happy to join forces with UNICEB to achieve these important common objectives" declared Piero Gattoni, President of the CIB.
"This agreement is part of UNICEB's strategy to support our production chains” declared Carlo Siciliani, President of UNICEB. “We have started this path within our Organization for 5 years now, offering specialized support to advise our companies towards the use of renewable energy to complete the last link of the circular economy which is also so important in terms of environmental sustainability. The collaboration agreement with the CIB is a further fundamental step forward in the right direction".
The agreement between CIB and UNICEB demonstrates the commitment of the two organizations which, in addition to guaranteeing greater sustainability of the entire livestock supply chain, concretely promotes the ecological transition, a fundamental step to achieve the ambitious European objectives.
