About Us

Who we are

The Sustainable Economy Association is an international non-profit organization, founded in 2016 in Bruxelles, developed in Italy starting from Trentino and later spread with its network all over Europe and North Africa with one main goal: shaping the economy of the future. How? Boosting investments and research in sustainable technologies, low carbon solutions, environmental projects and adjusting corporate strategies – to create a healthier planet.

What we do

We promote the application of new environment-friendly technologies through conferences, workshops and international research partnerships in Europe and Africa. We act as a best practice booster for the political decision makers, for SMEs and for the industrial sector. From 2017 we started experimenting, with the support of european and private contributions, innovative solutions to fight the desertification in North Africa trying to reduce at the same time the global carbon footprint.
