Erion positions itself in the national Collective Schemes landscape as the main non-profit System entirely controlled by Producers, able to create value for its Members and the chain by innovating the current waste management models in a circular economy vision.

During 2020, the Erion System generated a total economic value of 89,410,692 €, up 11.30% compared to the combined 2019 performances of Ecodom and Remedia. 

The economic value distributed to stakeholders amounted to 88,317,933 €, up 19.01% compared to the previous year.
90,21% of the value was distributed to logistics and treatment suppliers and to the Collection Centres/Grouping Places in the form of efficiency bonuses, representing a higher percentage compared to the previous year (+37.55%); 5.71% was allocated to other operating costs, 3.10% to personnel, 0.56% to the Public Administration for tax payments and 0.42% to communication.

The consequence of the increase in cost is that the economic value retained by the System stands at 1,092,759 €, down 82.15% compared to 2019.

Erion’s work aims to support the transition to the circular economy both in terms of operational aspects and in terms of strategic developments . To this end, the significant investments made by the System are reflected in the indirect economic impacts generated by the positive externalities of its operations, capable of generating significant benefits for stakeholders, such as the creation or maintenance of jobs and efficient waste management and treatment models.

The indirect economic impacts generated by the System are mainly two:

  • the reduction of charges for local authorities, equal to 41,097,948 €;
  • the efficiency bonuses to the Collection Centres and Grouping Places, equal to 17,207,059 €.
