We were established in 2010 in Tuscany and it was from there that we started an extraordinary journey that has taken our energy into homes and businesses throughout Italy.
Our main shareholders are public companies (Consiag S.p.A. – Prato, Intesa S.p.A. – Siena, Coingas S.p.A. – Arezzo, Viva Servizi S.p.A. – Ancona), which have joined together to create one of Italy’s leading multiutilities in the energy sector.
We are aware that our ability to create value increasingly also encompasses aspects not traditionally considered, such as the environment and social concerns. Sustainability issues are instrumental in meeting the needs and expectations of the world in which our Company operates.
The long history of the 1000 Miglia race and the values we share, combined with a unique 2023 itinerary that passes through several areas served by Estra are some of the reasons why, once again this year, we support 1000 Miglia. The journey metaphor represents us: from the province in central Italy, through various stages, today we have reached a national dimension, and the journey continues.
