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.


Revision 2020

81 years of ERG history are a concrete demonstration of the commitment and attention that our group has always paid in promoting sustainability as a development model, through a responsible process of innovation and change, a sort of "engine" for continuous improvement of business and creation of shared value for stakeholders.

Over the last 10 years, ERG has confirmed its concrete commitment in the fight against climate change and in the process of decarbonisation of the economy, embarking on the journey of energy transition. From leading private Italian oil company, today ERG is a leading independent operator in the market of electricity generation from renewable sources.

Growth and enhancement of human capital, attention to the environment and respect of safety are priority and distinctive elements of the ERG culture in its business model. The concept of listening to nature and respecting it fully permeate ERG Hydro, company of the ERG Group operating in the hydroelectric sector, through its power plants with an efficient capacity of 527 MW and an annual clean energy production of approximately 1.4 TWh.

Presentation of the ERG Hydro Environmental Declaration is an act of transparency and open communication on the environmental performance of our hydroelectric assets and on our objectives of ongoing improvement, on those achieved in 2017-2019 three-year period and on those we strive to achieve during the 2020-2022 three-year period, with our constant commitment to caring for the Environment.
