Going beyond simple confirmation, Enel improved its position among the Top 100 companies of the 2021 Diversity and Inclusion Index compared to last year. In the index developed by global financial data provider Refinitiv, the Group headed by Francesco Starace ranked seventh worldwide and first among Italian companies in terms of attention to gender diversity, workplace inclusion policies and human capital development.
“We are honored to have been confirmed in the 2021 Refinitiv Diversity and Inclusion Index and to be recognized once again as a leader in our industry cluster,” commented CEO Francesco Starace, speaking about Enel’s thorough commitment in these areas at every level of the company: promoting the presence of women in the Board of Directors and in managerial positions as well as the integration of people with disabilities, enhancing employees’ skills, offering social benefits and solutions aimed at ensuring a balanced professional and personal life to all employees.
“This is yet another important acknowledgement of our ongoing commitment to the principles of equal opportunity and integrity, and is the result of our constant attention to gender diversity, workplace inclusion policies and human capital development”, CEO Francesco Starace pointed out, explaining how these sustainability principles are embedded “in our operational activities and in the services we provide to our customers.”

Based on 24 metrics across four main categories (diversity, inclusion, people development and controversies), the Diversity and Inclusion Index ranks the top 100 listed companies – out of the over 11,000 assessed – with the highest level of diversity and inclusion in the workplace globally. The Index is calculated by weighing each metric on the basis of the company’s importance in the market and by comparing each company with its peers. For the second consecutive year, Enel also leads the Diversity and Inclusion Index’s “Electric Utilities & IPPs” industry cluster: Enel’s Latin American subsidiary Enel Américas is also ranked in the index.
“We are committed to further improving our results in these areas in the future, in order to benefit our stakeholders and with a view to contributing to the creation of a more inclusive society,” CEO Francesco Starace announced in conclusion
