Speaker Marcello PALAZZI

Biography

Marcello is a serial entrepreneur for human progress.  Following 11 years as co-head of his international family business in environmental technologies, in the 80s to early 90s from Italy to the Uk, Marcello founded Progressio Foundation. The Foundation has completed 300 projects in 30 countries under his leadership, in pursuit of the ‘civic economy’. It is about this topic that Mr. Palazzi wrote about in 1990 in a pamphlet which has proved prescient, predicting the rise of CSR, sustainability, public-private partnerships, ethical investments, social enterprise and other forms of a more ‘integrative’ economy and enterprise.  www.progressio.org
