Lucart is partnering with Enel X and Intesa SanPaolo to drive technological and sustainable innovation in the paper industry. More than a thousand distribution partners of the company will benefit from the project.
The initiative calls for the development of a project to enable companies distributing Lucart products to embrace the sustainability paradigm through three important actions: the installation of photovoltaic systems on the roofs of their warehouses; the electrification of their vehicle fleets for the shipment of goods; and the use of financing and financial services linked to specific sustainability goals.
“We are proud to collaborate with two true sustainability leaders such as Enel X and Intesa Sanpaolo in offering our customers effective solutions that can contribute to their competitiveness and sustainability over time”, commented Francesco Pasquini, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of Lucart.
As part of the agreement, Lucart, as supply chain leader, will actively promote the project among its distributors, selecting those interested with full discretion and autonomy. Enel X, as a technical enabler, will provide advice and a range of services to the identified companies to support them in their decarbonisation journey. Intesa Sanpaolo will offer companies in the Lucart supply chain lines of credit as well as lease and rental services, with ad hoc solutions available to enable companies investing in cutting-edge and environmentally sustainable technologies to embark on the energy transition.
“Through this agrement we confirm our role as an accelerator of sustainability, providing a significant boost to innovation and transformation of the Italian business community, of which Lucart is an outstanding example”, commented Augusto Raggi, Head of Enel X Italy.
“Intesa Sanpaolo, in line with its 2022-25 Business Plan, confirms its role as an accelerator of the NRRP (National Recovery and Resilience Plan) initiatives by concretely supporting Italian companies towards ESG-oriented technological development and growth projects”, explained Richard Zatta, Head of Global Corporate of IMI Corporate & Investment Banking Division of Intesa Sanpaolo.
