- The company reaffirmed its position in the mid-year reviews of the FTSE4Good Index Series and the Euronext Vigeo-Eiris indices at global, European, and eurozone levels

Rome, June 7th, 2023 – Enel was confirmed once again in the FTSE4Good Index Series and the Euronext Vigeo-Eiris (V.E.) indices, which rank the top global companies in terms of environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices and transparency. In the latter, Enel maintained its place in the World 120 index, as well as in the regional Euronext V.E. Eurozone 120 and Europe 120 indices, listing the 120 most sustainable companies out of the 500 largest free-float companies in the Eurozone and Europe.
Both FTSE4Good and V.E. awarded Enel’s commitment to embedding ESG practices into the business strategy along its entire value chain. FTSE4Good highlighted Enel’s practices and transparency on a wide range of topics, including biodiversity, health and safety, human rights, corporate governance, risk management, and tax transparency. At the same time, V.E. recognized Enel’s outstanding performance in the development of its environmental strategy, managing its human capital, and fostering sound governance practices.
This outstanding performance and position is also extended to other listed Enel Group companies, such as its Spanish subsidiary Endesa, which renewed its position in the FTSE4Good index and in all three indices of V.E.. Enel Américas and Enel Chile, Enel subsidiaries that operate in Latin America, were also confirmed in the FTSE4Good Index.
Enel’s global sustainability leadership is acknowledged through its presence in several other renowned sustainability indices as well as rankings, such as the DJSI World and Europe, the MSCI ESG Leaders Indexes, the CDP Climate “A” List, the STOXX Global ESG Leaders index, the ISS “Prime” rating, the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index, the Refinitiv TOP 100 Diversity and Inclusion Index, the Equileap's Top 100 Gender Equality Global Ranking and the ECPI indices.
The Group is increasingly attracting the attention of Socially Responsible Investors, whose stake in the company is steadily growing, representing about 14.9% of Enel’s share capital as of end of 2022, more than double compared to 2014 levels. This increase reflects the growing importance the financial market gives to non-financial elements in the creation of long-term sustainable value.
Enel’s long track record of inclusion in the world’s leading sustainability indices is supported by its commitment to creating long-term value for its stakeholders and contributing to the sustainable development of the local areas where it operates.
In 2022, Enel contributed to the social and economic development of the areas in which it operates with over 2,300 sustainable projects, in line with the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs). These projects range from the development of infrastructure to education programs and vocational training, to projects of support for cultural and economic activities, the promotion of access to energy, to rural and suburban electrification, to the promotion of social inclusion for the most vulnerable categories of the population (in terms of physical, social and economic conditions).
