Our attention towards issues regarding CSR reflects in the Group’s shareholding: 108 Socially Responsible Investors held Enel share capital representing around 14.6% of the shares owned by institutional investors. The figure refers to SRIs which include Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles in the criteria which determine their investment choices.
Socially Responsible Investing is a financial investment strategy that cares for both investment profit objectives and social and environmental impact on the community.
SRI funds also request to know and evaluate “where” and “how” their money will be invested, in order to choose to invest in companies that operate in a sustainable manner, excluding companies that don’t respect, or that even harm the environment and the society.
SRI’s increasing interest towards Enel stresses Corporate Social Responsibility’s 10-year long path in pursuit of top sustainability and accountability standards.
