ICEC renews its management
“I am very happy that Camera Nazionale della Moda italiana, with its very own Paola Arosio (in photo in top-left corner), will be present at ICEC’s table for the next two years – commented Carlo Capasa (in picture in the bottom-left corner), president of CNMI in a note -. Traceability and certifications are important tools to accompany companies towards a more sustainable path. The leather chain is a fundamental asset for our country. That’s why it becomes increasingly important to create a structured system, with two-ways activities that work towards a common shared strategy for the fashion segment”. Arosio has been coordinating sustainability projects for CNMI since 2012, as well as developing initiatives to support the growth of emerging designers, training programs and other activities in the Human Resources and Education area. The latter area has also paid particular attention to the theme of diversity and inclusion.
“After much professional experience gained in business and effort made on various activities related to the Made-in-Italy topics – adds Calistri, already president of CNA Firenze and of Consorzio Centopercento Italiano – it’s a pleasure for me to take on such important title in the field of certification. I thank Assopellettieri for having chosen me as a candidate. Now more than over, the entire fashion chain in Italy needs competencies in this field. I hope to be able to take on these responsibilities and contribute to the achievement of the goals that ICEC has set for itself”.
