Circular Economy in brief n. 16 | Measures to facilitate industry 4.0 as a tool for sustainable industry

Within the National Industry 4.0 Plan mentioned in the previous article, one of the strategic guidelines that has been widely developed, concerns hyper and super amortization. The objective of this law is to support and incentivize companies that invest in new capital goods, i.e. in tangible and intangible assets useful for the technological and digital transformation of production processes. In fact, all investments today will enjoy a hyper-depreciation at 250% (the super-amortization is at 140%), thus placing environmental sustainability at the center of the country's economic growth. A maneuver that increasingly pushes companies towards a circular economy and a multidisciplinary environment, facilitating the companies that work with these new transformation processes, using a new, more sustainable production chain.

Regenesi is an example of this, thanks to the production of its sustainable luxury collections, using advanced technologies within production processes, guaranteeing identical quality standards with respect to standard raw materials. In particular, with the File Bag line, developed by fashion designer Annalisa Caricato, the circular economy becomes the protagonist of a creative project, where sustainability and fashion find a meeting point in the reuse and recycling of materials, thus creating an ethical fashion.

The bag itself represents this idea: born from regenerated materials, File Bag is in continuous transformation, adapts itself to various occasions, without modifying its function, thus becoming an all-season object that lasts over time. This takes up exactly the concept of circular economy, an economic system where ideas of regeneration and transformation circulate, to meet the needs of a consumer who is increasingly aware and attentive to environmental sustainability. In conclusion, hyper and super amortization are new measures adopted recently that follows the principles of circular economy, pushing companies towards greater sustainability.
