Waste: at the hearth of the growth in the Plan to 2026
Hera enjoys a leading competitive position in the Waste business in Italy. The new Plan to 2026 outlines a clear strategy: to leverage the Group’s existing widespread plant base and its ability to intercept annual waste volumes of over 6.7 million tonnes to increase its competitive advantage.
The idea is set in a context that is favourable from several points of view: the issue of protecting the environment through proper waste treatment and disposal is felt by citizens and is a legal responsibility for the companies that generate the waste. Both the new tariff framework for the treatment of municipal waste and the Italian government’s PNRR contain mechanisms that incentivise investment in the business, while the market price-trend has been positive for six years.
