Sustainability ratings, indices and benchmarks
ESG analysts and rating agencies continuously monitor Enel's sustainability performance in relation to environmental, social and governance issues, through the application of different methods. ESG ratings are a strategic tool to support investors in assessing sustainable business models and identifying sustainability-related risks and opportunities in their investment portfolio, aiding the development of active and passive sustainable investment strategies. Enel is constantly committed to the management and reporting of all ESG aspects, and considers rating agency assessments an important opportunity to improve its performance in terms of sustainability and defining specific action plans with the involvement of the various company units and Business Lines. The main actions implemented through these plans have concerned: increasing transparency of performance related to ESG issues, reinforcing the human rights due diligence process, comprehensive mapping and assessment of climate associations with respect to the Paris objectives, defining and reporting on the "No Net Loss" biodiversity target, and improving reporting on Scope 3 emissions, particularly those related to the supply chain.
In 2022, Enel maintained its positioning in the major ESG indices and rankings, reaching leadership positions in most cases. Enel was also the first company to fully align its corporate disclosures with the CA100+ Net Zero Company Benchmark and was included in the World Benchmarking Alliance's Just Transition Assessment.
