Close Customers Presence

Close to customers. Our presence in the community

Outstanding customer care is a defining characteristic of Hera Group, one of Italy's biggest multi-utility firms. Every day, the Group provides waste management, water management and energy services to about 4.3 million people and about 190 thousand companies.

In 2019, over 1.6 million gas and electricity customers were served in several Italian regions*.

A far-reaching presence throughout our service area is flanked by meticulous customer care and fair business practices, both of which are supported by constant, detailed checks across the whole sales network.

The multi-utility offers many, easily accessible contact channels, which include:

  • 159 branches (of which 117 are placed in Emilia-Romagna, Triveneto, and Marche, supplemented by the branches managed in other regions);
