Hera Group has defined specific short and medium-term objectives for each impact area of the smart use of energy driver, on the basis of an analysis of the Italian and global scenario. We check and redefine these objectives yearly.

In total, the EBITDA for CSV related to the "Innovation and contribution to local development" driver was 82.5 million euro, 14% of the overall EBITDA for CSV.

With regard to the "spreading of innovation and digitalisation", shared value was achieved also through telecommunication services, via the Acantho company, and through projects for the digitalisation of operational and data analysis processes with a view to their optimisation. "Economic development and social inclusion" was especially achieved through generated employment and the outsourcing of environmental services to social cooperatives. This allows disadvantaged individuals to be employed and also leads to economic benefits for the Public Administration (lower welfare costs). Lastly, in terms of "air and soil protection", the purchase of vehicles with a lower environmental impact and the expansion of the volume served by district heating were privileged.
