‘Observatory on raw materials 2012’. The Italian extractive sector – an economic and financial analysis for sustainable development
The project arises from the need to create an organic database of non-energy, raw materials. The aim is to provide a useful input not only to foster a wider and better knowledge of the industry, but also to guide its programming and planning activities.
CRIET has identified a methodology for studying the extractive sector through the performance of the budget data. On the one hand, it provides a description of the sector’s trends and on the other hand, it assesses the business aspects of the company through indicators of profitability, capital strength and financial equilibrium.
The results of this first edition of the observatory were presented in Rome at the Sala del Parlamento, at the Ministry of Economic Development and filmed for Italian television by ‘Tg1 Economia’.
