SUSTAINABLE SERVICES

The quality of service and customer satisfaction are the pillars that support the growth strategy of Iren Group, with the further objective of contributing to the protection and enhancement of the territory.
 
For this reason, Iren Group has chosen to:
produce electricity mainly from unconventional sources: hydropower, photovoltaic, cogeneration and waste-to-energy plants
reduce emissions through cogeneration and waste-to-energy plants 
pursue water and energy saving also promoting good practices and sustainable consumption behaviour among customers 
ensure a rational and sustainable management of water resources by carrying out interventions aimed at reducing leaks in drinking water distribution networks, investing in sewage systems and wastewater treatment plants
adopt integrated waste management systems that enable to intercept a huge amount of material for recycling and to send for disposal only those materials that are not usefully recyclable, with consequent energy recovery
