The link with the local region is authentic, and in fact in the last decade Herno has demonstrated the need to operate in a very clear manner with respect to the nature surrounding that shore of Lake Maggiore.
Thus the investments in photovoltaics that make buildings completely autonomous in their energy requirements, saving hundreds of trees each year; the acquisition of the latest low-consumption machinery; attention to the environmental impact of facilities that have been camouflaged amongst the greenery, for aesthetics and to insulate; the choice to produce and donate gowns and masks to hospitals in Piedmont during the months of the pandemic; perseverance, for love and ethics, to reiterate the ability to study, to experiment, with typical lake-region stubbornness in presenting authentically green collections under the Herno Globe label.
“I believe in continuous improvement, in constant change through investments in research and advanced technologies. The future is always ahead of us and requires attention.”
Herno commits 8% of its turnover to innovate machinery and photovoltaic systems to make the Lesa headquarters and its logistic branches completely energy self-sufficient.
