On May 23, the SUPER-HEERO project celebrated its Final Event Entitled “Main Trends Of Sustainability In The Retail And Catering Sectors: A View Towards The Future”, organised by Spanish partners CREARA – Energy Experts.
Thomas Messervey, CEO of R2M Solution and SUPER-HEERO project coordinator, and Rodrigo Morell, CEO of CREARA – Energy Experts, made a joint welcome to the event, which was followed by several experts in sustainability, retail, and supermarkets both in the Impact Hub Barceló in Madrid (Spain), and online, through digital channels.
After the introduction, the first block of contents started with Pedro Luis Espejo, from CREARA – Energy Experts, who showcased the initiative approach and the learnings related to how to enhance sustainability without initial investment. Then, Gerardo López, from Supermercados COVIRÁN, shared with the attendees its company’s business and sustainability models, highlighting its compromise and values. After this case study, Cristina Barbero, from R2M solution, took the floor to showcase the SUPER-HEERO and NaturaSì joint experience, marking the milestones achieved and the main findings that the project will take into consideration for upcoming projects.
The second phase of the Final Event of SUPER-HEERO was the shared knowledge by energy experts. Moderated by Nuria Cardoso, from ASEDAS (the Spanish Association of Distributors, Self-Service, and Supermarkets), the panel discussion set a 360-discussion about the main strategies and topics that any business strategist should set in their energy plans. Álvaro Sánchez, from ReDream project and CEO of Stemy, Ignacio Guerrero, CTO of Ampere Energy, Rodrigo Morell, CEO of CREARA – Energy Experts, and Luis Molano, CEO of Senda Energy gave many insights from their own experience and provided different approaches for energy savings for retail, supermarkets, and other shop owners.
SUPER-HEERO sets its last steps and strategies
After the Final Event celebration, the SUPER-HEERO consortium partners celebrated its last General Assembly Meeting. Following the introduction of Thomas Messervey, CEO of R2M and SUPER-HEERO project coordinator, each Work Package leader took the floor to highlight its activity from the last months and exposed how the project will achieve its final milestones and close the final deliverables. In the words of Messervey: “The SUPER-HEERO project showed us what teamwork and effort could do. The success of our first pilot in Padova points to us what are the main findings that we must follow and how we should face our upcoming projects in Italy and Spain. The end of our assigned activities won’t mean the end of the SUPER-HEERO action: it’s just the beginning of the change for energy efficiency and consumer engagement in supermarkets”.
