Investing in sustainability

Published on Wednesday, 22 June 2016

“The environmental, social and governance-related indicators used to measure and describe our sustainability practices are in line with Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards and describe Enel's commitment to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).”

For years we have constantly been engaged in managing and measuring our sustainability performance, developing - in collaboration with major global networks - tools that enable the achievement of a codified and integrated system of activities, information and homogenous data, promoting best practices and experience sharing.

Our Sustainability Report uses internationally shared criteria in line with Global Compact, GRI and SDG Compass, in order to enable all stakeholders to clearly assess our performance.

Translating words into deeds

By being admitted to the international sustainability indices for listed companies, we enable our investors to objectively assess our performance and share our mission.

“Enel is present in the main global sustainability indices.”

We were confirmed in the Euronext Vigeo - World 120 index, Eurozone 120 and Europe 120 indices, again for the first quarter of 2016. The inclusion in the three indexes follows our presence in the most important global sustainability indicators, such as the Dow Jones Sustainability Index World, FTSE4Good, STOXX Global ESG Leaders and the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index.

The growing interest of socially responsible investment (SRI) funds, which own 7.7% of Enel's total outstanding shares, equal to 10.3% of the company's free-float, confirms our commitment.

Environmental protection, recognition of human rights, community and shareholder relations, integrity and efforts to fight corruption are not just commitments, but parameters with which to assess our ability to translate words into deeds, meeting the commitments we have made and pursuing the ambitious targets we have set for ourselves by defining Open Power, our new strategic vision.
