Ravenna, June 28, 2023 – Important recognition for Valerio Molinari and Michela Nanni, who today in Vienna during the Annual Meeting of the International Road Federation (IRF) were elected to the Board of Directors.
IRF, which is based in Geneva, is one of the world’s most important associations dealing with sustainable mobility, studying and analyzing the intermodal transportation system both in individual countries and in complex international systems.
This is a great satisfaction for Valerio Molinari, major shareholder of Ecogest Spa, a leader in highway green maintenance, and AISCAT board member, and for Michela Nanni, CEO of Ecogest Spa. “This is an extraordinary honor for me personally and for the entire Ecogest, both in Italy and for the subsidiaries around the world,” commented Valerio Molinari and Michela Nanni. “It is an award that recognizes the enormous work done in recent years, not only on the international activities covered by our historic ‘core business’ but also for the activities we carry out with the Climate Change Study Centre, which we created to analyze the effects of climate change globally, and to propose interventions to cushion its effects on transport infrastructure, starting with the revision of maintenance plans. A recognition that elevates not only the level of commitment for our companies, but also the international quality of the interlocution with the global transportation system.”
