Stefano Venier, CEO of Hera, at the European Forum 2019 held in Alpbach

On 26 August 2019, Hera CEO Stefano Venier made a speech on “how to turn a traditional utility company into a circular-economy frontrunner” at the European Forum Alpbach, the interdisciplinary platform for science, politics, business and culture held every year in the Austrian Alps.

Established in 1945, the annual European Forum Alpbach addresses the relevant socio-political questions of the present time, not only to analyze current developments, causes and driving forces, but also to deliver new perspectives and orientations.

In this scenario the Hera CEO presented the activity carried out by the Group and, inspired by the circular economy principles, aimed to create shared value. Venier stressed out the importance of conjugating projects with people engagement, so that the best technology can be underpinned by people behavior. Not only district heating, smart cities, energy efficiency and environmentally-friendly services, in order to balance the technical aspects of this change with human requirements, a deep dialogue, constant educational and communication activities and punctual reporting are needed.
