Sustainable and Equipped Productive Industrial areas - SEPA concept is the integration of industry into environment by balancing economic criteria and sustainability. Cooperation among operators and sharing of joint solutions for the environmental impact reduction is proposed through SEPA as a new management model of attractive and accessible growth areas. Within the framework of relevant European strategies (Lisbon, Gothenburg) and according to EMS/EMAS standards, SEPA concept proposed a multi-dimension approach for guaranteeing the latest balanced development goals. SEPA aimed at raising the awareness of public and private sector about the impact of productive areas on the environment and proposes viable solutions for the adoption of new development models. Such models have to be tailored by screening all the aspects of the day-by-day life of the productive areas both from an economic and a social point of view. The productive area is therefore not only the gathering of firms and equipments but it is animated by a social dimension.
