Hera: the best urban waste company

Hera won the first National award for the prevention of waste in the Urban waste companies category, promoted by Federambiente and Legambiente under the patronage of the Ministry of the Environment and Protection of Land and Sea.

The Group presented three projects at the competition specially designed to reduce waste from a social responsibility perspective: Regala un albero (Donate a tree) which cuts down paper bills in favour of electronic ones, Cibo Amico which reduces food waste and allows uneaten meals in company canteens to be donated to welfare associations in the area and Hera2O which promotes the water network, limiting the production of plastic used for bottles of mineral water and emissions caused by their transportation.

There were 5 different categories in the competition (companies, urban waste companies, educational institutions, associations and local authorities). Fifty one organisations committed to good practices aimed at the prevention of waste took part. A total of 77 initiatives were presented. The winners of the various categories were chosen by a jury of experts.
