After working for several international law firms, in 2003, Sabrina Corbo and her husband Piero Saulli founded Green Network SpA in Rome which, today, is one of the main electricity and gas suppliers in Italy with around one million customers between Italy and the UK, and over £2bn in turnover.
Following the success in the Italian energy market, Mrs Corbo decided to open Green Network UK Plc in 2013, which was followed in 2015 by Green Network Energy Ltd, the first Italian company to supply electricity and gas to both domestic and business customers in the UK. To date, Green Network Energy has over 800,000 domestic and 2,000 business customers.
For her commitment to friendly relationships between the UK and Italy, Sabrina was made Knight of the Order of the Star of Italy in 2017.
We interviewed Mrs Corbo after she was elected Vice President of the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the UK, in May 2020.
Not only she plays an important role for the ICCIUK, but most of all she represents an entrepreneur with ethical and moral duties, who is also a mother of three children and therefore ensured that Green Network was a family-friendly company.
