MILAN, May 27, 2022 /3BL Media/ – Eni, CNH Industrial and Iveco Group have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for possible joint social development initiatives in countries of common interest in the fields of agriculture, sustainable mobility and education, contributing in their respective industries.
More specifically, the parties will focus on improving the value chain in the agricultural sector in order to promote food security, increase the efficiency of agriculture and market access for farmers – notably through the development solutions for more sustainable logistics and the movement of goods and people. Another important aspect of the partnership is the professional training of young adults, students and entrepreneurs, as well as the interaction with local communities, through an approach based on listening and dialogue, and initiatives adapted to specific local needs. The partnership will provide concrete social support by investing in the creation of quality training, thus expanding training opportunities for young adults with a view to their professional integration.
“This Memorandum of Understanding demonstrates the key role of the private sector in financing for development, as underlined by the United Nations Conference in Addis Ababa in 2015.

It is a sector that draws its strength from quality, production, traceability and proximity to the land. It is also deeply impacted by the technological challenges of our present and future,” said Carlo Lambro, brand president of New Holland Agriculture, a brand of CNH Industrial. “The climate crisis, the ecological transition and the preservation of the environment are issues that require companies like CNH Industrial to show the way and be the driving force to meet these challenges. Thanks to this agreement with Eni and the Iveco Group, we are confident that we can effectively and efficiently develop our activities in this space. »

In the meantime, it is important to support continuing education projects that respond to the new challenges facing the entire production chain in the countries where we operate,” commented Michele Ziosi, Senior Vice President of Institutional Relations & Sustainability. , Iveco Group. “The challenge of ecological transition must also bring opportunities for economic and social growth. We will join forces with Eni and CNH Industrial to leverage each other’s expertise and continue our commitment to accessible, inclusive and sustainable mobility.
