The ambition of the Strategic Plan
Ecological Transition, to accelerate sustainability in all business sectors
The ecological transition acceleration is based on the development of 3 GW of new renewable capacity (solar and wind) also through the realisation of widespread energy communities and the decommissioning of the only thermoelectric plant not connected to the district heating network. These actions combined with the decarbonisation initiatives of all other businesses will allow Iren to halve its carbon intensity, reaching 176 gCO2/kWh in 2030. The target set by Iren has been validated by the Science Based Target Initiative as being in line with the BW2D scenario.
Iren is committed to become a leader in the circular economy through an increase in the percentage of sorted waste collection that will reach 76% in 2030, the development of waste selection and treatment plants that will reach a total capacity of 5.1 million tonnes (+2.4 million tonnes compared to 2022) allowing the Group to recover 3.6 million tonnes of waste, considering both material and energy.
Finally, Iren has always paid particular attention to the virtuous use of water resources, already reporting a much lower percentage of losses than the Italian average and committing itself to reduce them further, reaching 20% in 2030.
