On the occasion of the International Conference “Social Impact Investments”, held in Rome on October 12th, Filippo Addarii will present “Impact Investing to transform PPP for infrastructures of public interest: the case of the new hospital of Treviso”.
The public health infrastructure in many European cities is facing pressure to serve more people with fewer resources. Further, as the EU labour force shrinks, reliance on innovation to drive productivity growth has played an increasingly significant role. Addressing both of these issues with an innovative new approach to Public Private Partnership (PPP) is PlusValue’s work with Treviso Hospital.
“The example of the Treviso Hospital illustrates that scaling of social innovation is indeed possible and shows a new type of coalition between social impact investors, public and private sector that can make this type of venture happen.” European Investment Bank and Word Economic Forum White Paper, Beyond the Equity-Efficiency Trade-Off: Practical Ideas for Inclusive Growth and Competitiveness in Europe
The aim is for PlusValue’s integrated impact investing strategy to use the financial savings generated by the Treviso hospital’s reduced cost of capital to stimulate further investment from all the stakeholders involved, with a multiplier effect and self-sustaining positive feedback loop – circular economy – that increases the overall value of the project, creates greater value for the community, and creates new business opportunities thanks to an enhanced public reputation in Treviso.
The aim of the event is to allow scientific reflection on the subject of impact finance and its multiple declarations.
The conference is organized by the University of Rome La Sapienza, in collaboration with the Politecnico di Milano and the Casmef Center of the University Luiss Guido Carli; partners of the initiative are Banco BPM and the Ente Nazionale per il Microcredit.
