In 2017 Confservizi CISPEL Lombardia, together with Confservizi Piemonte-Valle d’Aosta and Confservizi CISPEL Liguria, gave birth to a cooperation called Confservizi del Nord-Ovest with the aim of building a strong and cohesive association, meant to be a representative expression of the North-West utility sector in Italy.Confservizi del Nord-Ovest affirms its willingness to become home for local public services companies that are industrially strategic and an outpost in sectors, where the desire to ensure a role of direction and control in the area of public institutions is still strong, thus guaranteeing an improvement in Citizens’ lives and being the driving force behind initiatives of change that spur and bring our country closer to the wealthiest areas of Europe. The Confservizi aim to strengthen the associative role by taking an active role in a relationship network that spreads the circulation of good practices. This is possible in "associated companies" thanks to the development of awareness concerning the importance of the connection with the territory, in which they are called to operate, and to the understanding of its need. With the desire of acquiring awareness of the driving force of the North- West and the vital role that the Public Service Companies play in this area, in 2018, upon request of the Coordinamento del Nord-Ovest, the Report on Utilities of the North-West was issued, by REF Ricerche in collaboration with Fondazione Utilitatis. In order to make the importance and the potential of the North-West quite plain, the study conducted first located this macro area in the context of the "strong" areas of Europe (Catalonia, Bavaria, Baden Wüttemberg, Westphalia, South of France, Holland ...) analyzing the elements of strength and stressing the importance of growth prospects. On the other hand, it examined the ambitious role of the public services sector to be the interpreter of the dialogue in terms of future of territories, communities and people.
