Hera is once again awarded the tender for waste management in Bologna
Experimenting and developing solutions for the decarbonisation of Emilia-Romagna. This is the goal for which, at the beginning of the year, Hera Group and Snam signed a letter of intent to collaborate in the development of hydrogen, starting from power-to-gas technology.
Thanks to the complete, conscious integration of sustainability policies into business strategies, the multiutility was ranked first in the 2021 Integrated Governance Index, an authoritative model for analysing ESG factors.
In June, the Group, with its subsidiary Herambiente, acquired 70% of Recycla, a company of Friuli that manages three platforms for solid and liquid industrial waste. This was followed shortly afterwards by the acquisition of the Tuscan company SEA Ambiente and 80% of the Vallortigara Group.
The Group’s focus on sustainability has once been again recognised with its inclusion in the MIB ESG Index, the first blue-chip index for Italy dedicated to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) best practices.
In November, the temporary grouping of companies (RTI) between Hera S.p.A., Giacomo Brodolini Soc. Coop and Consorzio Stabile Ecobi was awarded the tender for waste stewardship in the Bologna basin. The award comes closely after those for waste stewardship in the Ravenna and Cesena basins, in 2019, the Modena plain and mountain area, in November 2021, and the tender for the stewardship of the integrated water service in the province of Rimini.
NexMeter, the Hera Group’s 4.0 gas smart meter, the first of its kind in terms of safety features, is ready for the first network experiment with hydrogen; the fact that it is produced with recycled plastic completes Hera Group’s commitment to energy transition and circularity.
