The Corporate Social Responsibility Department

This unit was established by the Board of Directors of Hera S.p.A. in May 2005 and reports to the Chief Executive Officer. The CSR Organisational Unit, which from 2010 is now a Department, ensures that the social responsibility principles are an integral part of corporate planning and management. The CSR Department is in charge of defining and proposing corporate guidelines concerning corporate social responsibility, reporting on sustainability, ensuring the continued development of the integrated balanced scorecard system with sustainability strategies, proposing and managing the execution of social responsibility projects. Since the end of 2010, the Department has included the Balanced Scorecard System Management, Sustainability Reporting and CSR Projects offices.

Hera invests in research on social responsibility

At the end of 2010, the Department of Economic Sciences at the University of Bologna assigned a research fellowship, financed by Hera, as part of the "Corporate social responsibility and market competition" project. The project's goal is to apply analytic economic tools to the study of companies which adopt social responsibility policies.
