The Enel Group has been admitted to the prestigious CDP Italy Climate Disclosure Leadership Index 2014, published in the CDP Italy 100 Climate Report 2014.
Enel was ranked in the index as a leading company in terms of quality, comprehensiveness and transparency of climate change data it made available to the market through CDP, the international NGO promoting sustainable economy. Within the index, Enel was awarded a score of 98/100.
Furthermore, Enel has been admitted for the first time to the STOXX Global ESG Leaders index, a benchmark designed to measure the performance of companies demonstrating strong Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices. The index was created by financial services supplier STOXX Limited, which is in turn owned by the German and the Swiss stock exchanges. Enel was admitted to the index with a score of 78.8/100 in the social rating, 53/100 in the environmental rating and 93.1/100 in the governance rating.
The Enel Group was also once again confirmed as a constituent of the FTSE4Good Index series, a benchmark designed to measure the performance of companies demonstrating strong Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices.
Following the Semi-Annual Review of the FTSE4Good Index series in September 2014, Enel Green Power was also admitted to the series for the first time.
“We are extremely pleased about our achievements in the CDP Italy, STOXX and FTSE4Good indices” stated Francesco Starace, Enel Group CEO. “Alongside the admissions we have announced today, Enel has for many years featured in the world’s most prominent sustainability indices and this year we are also one out of three utilities worldwide to be ranked in both the World and Europe series of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index. These recognitions confirm Enel as a global benchmark on Corporate Social Responsibility and underscores the fact that sustainability is a fundamental part of Enel’s business practices and decision-making processes.”
The Enel Group participates in other leading sustainability indexes such as: Euronext-Vigeo World 120, Euronext-Vigeo Europe 120, Euronext-Vigeo Eurozone 120 and Newsweek Green Ranking.
Based on the latest figures from December 2013, SRI (Socially Responsible Investor) funds hold 15.6% of the Enel institutional shareholding in their portfolios, corresponding to 8% of the shares on the market.
