Acea’s History

[GRI - 102-1],

Acea was founded in 1909 as Azienda Elettrica Municipale (AEM) to manage and develop Rome’s essential water and electricity infrastructure necessary to guarantee the economic and social growth and environmental balance of Italy's capital city. The Company has been operating in the essential public services sector for over a century, with a growth trajectory that has effectively seized the opportunities presented by the market and the regulatory and social context, expanding and developing its activities and management capacity, as well as its legal composition with the listing on the Stock Exchange in 1999, and opening itself to new strategic partners.
Acea is a nationwide industrial group, active in integrated water management, electricity and gas production, distribution and sales, environmental services and activities to enable smart communities. The current development guidelines set out in the strategic plans are characterised by the consolidation of the Group's leadership position in the water industry and the expansion of the regional area of interest, mainly focused on Central Italy, and of its businesses, which range from the generation from renewable sources to the environmental sector and the circular economy, and from energy effciency services to sustainable mobility infrastructure.
In this context, digitalisation, technological innovation and sustainability are the levers that enable us to improve operating efficiency, service quality, resilience and grid integration, increasing the Group's capacity to generate shared value for all of our stakeholders.
