Rosa is passionate about sustainability and circular economy, to which she has been very well acquainted since childhood, as the concept of reuse and recycle was well engrained in her family of 11 children from the South of Italy.
She recently completed a course of Business Sustainability Leadership at the Cambridge Institute for Sustainable Leadership and a training as Climate Reality Leader at the Climate Reality Project.
