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 75.8 million euro, 23% of the overall EBITDA for CSV.

In the promotion of innovation and digitalisation area, shared value was pursued both by developing telecommunication services, through Acantho, and by implementing projects for the digitalisation of operational processes. Economic development and social inclusion contributed to the growth of the EBITDA for CSV by creating jobs in spillover businesses and by outsourcing waste management services to social cooperatives, which enabled job placement of underprivileged people and the resulting economic benefit for the Public Administration (lower welfare costs). Lastly, concerning the protection of air and soil, we gave priority to purchasing vehicles with lower environmental impact and to the district heating service.
