“Our presence in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for the eighteenth year in a row is a reflection of our continued focus towards the development of a sustainable business model, while leading the energy transition and promoting responsible business practices, therefore maximizing shared value for all our stakeholders,” pointed out Enel’s CEO Francesco Starace while commenting on the announcement regarding Enel’s inclusion in the prestigious sustainability index – one of the most authoritative performance assessments for companies leading the way on this front globally – for the eighteenth year in a row.
“In order to reduce emissions, we need to focus on cities. What happens in cities is a driver for the world’s development”
Francesco Starace, Enel CEO
According to the S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment, Enel achieved a score of 88 across the economic, environmental and social dimensions. In particular, the index recognized Enel’s proactive role in addressing climate change and in promoting a low-carbon emission energy model, two commitments that CEO Francesco Starace has always strongly supported.
Enel is one of seven electric utility companies listed in the DJSI World, which also includes the Group’s Spanish subsidiary Endesa. This year, Enel stood out for its responsible corporate management practices, risk and crisis management – including risks related to water resources – as well as its commitment to human rights, human capital development and stakeholder engagement. Finally, the index also acknowledged the Group’s results in promoting transparency on social and environmental performances.
“We see sustainability as a journey into the continuous improvement of our business models, products, services, and our entire company, always aiming to be in harmony with our stakeholders, the environment and society as a whole,” CEO Francesco Starace pointed out.
