Herambiente was born out of a desire to concentrate Hera Group's exclusive expertise and extensive plant resources in a new company that would be better positioned to take advantage of the development prospects for the Italian market, which is served by highly fragmented companies and by a plant infrastructure that is insufficient for dealing with an annual demand of over 160 million tonnes of waste.
The company is owned by Hera Group, one of Italy's leading multiutility companies, which provides environmental, water and energy services (distribution and sale of methane gas, electricity and district heating).
Its original business model and careful and sustainable management of its resources have led it to occupy a prominent role among the national leaders in the sector, not least because of its capacity for environmental innovation.
The company is responsible for organising and managing all the operational and commercial activities of the waste treatment, recovery and disposal plants.
Thanks to its awareness of various issues, its experience and the fact that it responds to the needs of the community, Herambiente is able to safeguard and take care of the environment and the local area for 4.4 million people in the provinces of Bologna, Modena, Ferrara, Ravenna, Forlž-Cesena, Rimini, Pesaro-Urbino and Florence.
The birth of a great Group
Herambiente was created on 1 July 2009 out of the Environment Division of Hera Group, Ecologia Ambiente S.r.l. and Recupera S.r.l., inheriting their expertise and plants.
