Italgas, leader in Italy and third in Europe in the gas distribution sector, becames part of the share capital of the MIP Politecnico di Milano Graduate School of Business.
Italgas' choice, which brings to 21 the national and multinational companies and institutions that make up the organisation's corporate structure, is in line with the Company's new approach, which has identified technological innovation and digitalization of the network as objectives to promote the adoption of new technologies in a predictive way for the benefit of the entire Italian gas distribution system.
The direct collaboration with the MIP and the network of associated companies will allow Italgas to promote and develop specific initiatives in the areas of management, digital transformation and continuous improvement, with a business-oriented approach; at the same time Italgas will provide the network of associated companies the know-how and the specific expertise acquired in 180 years of experience.
“The partnership with the Politecnico di Milano, which has always represented an excellence in the research, innovation and training sectors
- commented Paolo Gallo, Italgas CEO -
will help to promote the acquisition of know-how and new skills in the fields of management and digital technologies that our people need to carry out the challenging investment plan and pursue the growth and development targets that we have set for the Group's growth and for the entire Italian gas distribution system”.
In the words of Andrea Sianesi, MIP Dean:
“One of the long-standing building blocks in our strategy at our Business School is our closeness to companies and business and our desire to be an integral part of this world. Italgas, the leading operator in Italy in the field of natural gas urban distribution, has now joined our corporate structure, confirming the quality of our education and the special projects that we have developed, especially in the strategic area of energy management”.
