“Enel’s business model, which embraces sustainability as its core value, integrating it along the entire value chain, has been recognized once again by two of the financial market’s most relevant indexes that track companies’ performance from an environmental, social, and governance point of view”: this is what Enel’s CEO and General Manager Francesco Starace had to say with regard to Enel’s confirmation in the Ftse4Good Index Series and in the semi-annual review of the Euronext V.E (Vigeo-Eiris) World 120 index.
“We foster sustainable development in all the countries where we operate by promoting businesses and technologies that contribute to addressing the most urgent challenges facing society, such as climate change”

The Ftse4Good Index Series ranks the top global companies in terms of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices and transparency: the Italian Group was reconfirmed following Ftse4Good’s review of the first half of 2021. Twice a year, the Euronext V.E. World 120 index lists the 120 most sustainable organizations among the 1,500 largest companies in terms of floating capital in North America, Asia-Pacific, and Europe. The Group headed by Francesco Starace was also reconfirmed in the regional Euronext V.E Eurozone 120 and Europe 120 indexes, which list the 120 most sustainable organizations among the 500 largest companies in terms of floating capital in the Eurozone and Europe respectively.
“We foster sustainable development in all the countries where we operate by promoting businesses and technologies that contribute to addressing the most urgent challenges facing society, such as climate change,” Enel’s CEO and General Manager Francesco Starace pointed out. The Ftse4Good and V.E indexes acknowledged Enel’s commitment to embed ESG practices in the company’s business strategy along the entire value chain. In particular, Ftse4Good awarded Enel’s practices and transparency in the areas of climate change, biodiversity, health and safety, human rights, corporate governance, and tax transparency.
Furthermore, as Enel stated in a press release, “The outstanding performance and the excellent position achieved also extend to other listed Enel Group companies, such as the Spanish subsidiary Endesa, which renewed its position in the Ftse4Good index and in all the three V.E indexes.” Enel Américas and Enel Chile, the Enel Group companies which operate in Latin America, were also confirmed in the Ftse4Good index. “This is the path we are pursuing in order to create value for all our stakeholders and maintain our leadership position,” Enel’s CEO and General Manager Francesco Starace said in conclusion.
