ERG Hydro - EMAS Declaration

The ERG Hydro Hydroelectric Complex, located in the Umbria, Lazio and Marche regions, is composed of a series of power plants, reservoirs, pumping units, dams, tunnels and pipelines used to produce electricity from a natural element: the water.

The plants and hydraulic works are located in the provinces of Terni, Perugia, Rieti and Macerata, while the head offices of the Hydroelectric Complex are at Villa Fabrizi in the Papigno district of Terni. The management of these assets is important for the ERG Group not only due to their financial worth but, most importantly, because they help to consolidate the Group's industrial position as a producer of electricity from renewable sources and to bolster its green vocation.

The EMAS registration which the site has held for over a decade, as well as the adoption of an Environmental Management System in line with the ISO 14001 international standard, enables ERG Hydro to pursue the effective and efficient management of environmental aspects and to establish a trusting and transparent relationship with institutions and the public, promoting the active participation of employees and collaborators who work on the site.

The most recent update to the ISO 14001 standard introduces the analysis of the context in which the Organisation operates, an evaluation of risks and opportunities with regard to stakeholders' expectations, as well as it revisits environmental aspects in terms of "life cycle", taking into account not only production and processing procedures within the corporate sphere but also upstream and downstream engagement.

The reports and indicators used enable all stakeholders to gain an overview of the company's activities and the main environmental topics.

The voluntary participation of ERG Hydro in an EU eco-management and audit scheme is further confirmation of the importance the ERG Group attributes to environmental sustainability, consolidating the effectiveness of one of its "Corporate Social Responsibility" (CSR) objectives: transparency and an open dialogue with the public. Indeed, we firmly believe that only through the pursuit of an active dialogue with interested parties and the application of a sustainable development model we can ensure continuous and quality performance, combining them with full respect for the environment and the local communities.

The Environmental Declaration aims to provide comprehensive and prompt information on the plants and environmental performance of the organisation with regard to the commitments undertaken and the results achieved, in the context of continuous improvement.

The 2019 edition

1938-2018… the story of the ERG Group stretches back for 80 years and combines sustainable development with innovation. Over the years, ERG has radically transformed its business, evolving from the leading private oil operator in Italy into the leading independent market operator in the field of electricity, mainly from renewable sources.

This change was made possible by the robust industrial and managerial culture crafted over eighty years of history. This year, ERG's commitment to sustainable development has translated into a prestigious recognition: ERG is ranked as the top company in Italy and the sixth in the world on the "Corporate Knights Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World Index".

Keeping pace with an evolving world, over the years ERG has learnt to listen to nature, to ally itself with its forces and to leverage it as its most valuable resource. And indeed, it is the power of water that provides the clean energy generated by ERG Hydro.
Our hydroelectric power plants have a total capacity of 527 MW, representing around 19% of the total installed capacity.
