On the circular economy front, the extension of the door-to-door waste collection system has allowed a significant increase in separate waste collection which, in the basin served by the Iren Group, stands at an average of 69.3% (national average 61 , 3%), in line with the objectives (73.6%) set by the industrial plan for 2025. This is what emerges from Iren’s 2020 Sustainability Report which reports on the economic, environmental and social performance of the Group. Waste management, in a circular economy logic, has produced a significant increase in waste sent for material recovery (over 49% of the total compared to 43% in 2019) and, in particular, waste treated in plants owned by the Group, in line with development forecasts. This was also made possible by the acquisition of companies operating in the recovery of waste, in particular plastic (I. Blue) and the organic fraction.
