Published on Tuesday, 1 December 2015

Financial observers confirm Enel’s central role in the field of sustainability. In fact this year too the Group has been inserted in the Euronext Vigeo – World index, that lists the most sustainable concerns among the 120 with the highest level of floating capital on the European, North American and in the Asia-Pacific area markets. Enel has also been confirmed in the Euronext Vigeo Eurozone 120 and Europe 120 regional indexes that respectively classify the 120 companies with the highest level of corporate responsibility among those with the greatest floating capital in the Eurozone and in Europe.

Euronext - Vigeo measures the large companies’  investments and strategies to put sustainable development at the core of their business. More specifically, the index evaluates each company  via 330 indicators covering  38 thematic areas, including environmental protection, commitment to respect for human rights and  human capital, stakeholder relations, corporate governance and the code of ethics, integrity and anti-corruption, the prevention of social and environmental dumping in the supply chain and in subcontracting. Euronext - Vigeo update their index admission criteria every six months, so that the sustainability standard of the companies admitted are in line with the latest  sector developments.

Enel, in addition to three Euronext – Vigeo indexes, has a strong presence in the most important global sustainability indexes, such as the Dow Jones Sustainability Index World, the FTSE4Good and STOXX Global ESG Leaders, the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index, the Carbon Performance Leadership Index and the Newsweek Green Ranking. It is no coincidence that socially responsible funds (SRI) own 5.9 percent of the share capital of the Group held by institutional investors, corresponding to 8.6 percent of the free float.
