Pope applauds Italian firm's environmental focus
February 08, 2010
Pope Benedict XVI met on February 6 with representatives of Rome's power company, ACEA, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The Pontiff praised the firms for its "commitment to protecting the environment through the sustainable management of natural resources, respect for the creation and the reduction of its environmental impact." Still more important, however, is the "human ecology," the Pope said, encouraging directors to be mindful of "the needs of workers, clients, suppliers, and the entire community."
