Objectives and KPIs for improvement

Iren’s sustainable growth includes goals and performance indicators that can be pursued through organisational processes but also skills and technologies, which are constantly evolving to develop: alternative and renewable energy, resilient cities, and a production system that enhances all resources. The strategy is centered on the creation of sustainable value in the long term, shared with territories and communities.
