On 9th April the first meeting between the Global Compact Network Italy Foundation (GCNI Foundation) and the Antitrust Authority on the topic of Legality Rating was held in Rome. The presence of the Antitrust Authority, starting with an overview and analysis followed by an open debate on the issue, enabled a greater understanding of the application mechanisms of the regulation - as amended following the recent public consultation in which the Foundation took part.
After the meeting the GCNI Foundation made a commitment to formalize and submit the numerous observations and requests made during the debate to the Antitrust Authority with the aim to verify the existence of criticalities which can be shown to Parliament. Moreover, in the coming months, further opportunities for collaboration between the GCNI Foundation and the Antitrust Authority will be evaluated in order to make the Protocol of Intent signed by the parties in May 2014 operational and fruitful.
The meeting was attended by the members of the GCNI Foundation and some companies participating in FederUtility who kindly hosted the event.
