Enel continues “along its sustainable path at full speed, with yet another recognition”. With these words, CEO Francesco Starace expressed his satisfaction with Enel’s recent reconfirmation in the FTSE4Good Index Series and in the Euronext Vigeo-Eiris index, as reported in the mid-year 2022 review that ranks the top global companies in terms of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices and transparency.
These are “two outstanding index series,” that recognize and certify the Group’s commitment to embedding ESG practices in the business strategy along its entire value chain. Enel has therefore reaffirmed itself as a leader in sustainability at the global, European, and Eurozone levels. This is a further recognition “of the Group’s successful equation linking sustainability to value creation,” Francesco Starace explained. As the CEO pointed out, ESG principles will remain “a priority across all our business lines, as we stay focused on solutions and technologies that generate shared value for the benefit of local communities and the wider environment”.

Specifically, FTSE4Good highlighted Enel’s practices and transparency on a wide range of topics, including biodiversity, health and safety, human rights, corporate governance, risk management, and fiscal transparency. Euronext Vigeo-Eiris, on the other hand, recognized Enel’s excellent performance in the development of its environmental strategy, in the management of its human capital, and in the promotion of sound governance practices. Enel was also confirmed in the semi-annual review of the Euronext Vigeo-Eiris (V.E) World 120 index which, twice a year, lists the 120 most sustainable companies out of the 1,500 largest companies in terms of free-float market capitalization in North America, Asia-Pacific, and Europe. The Group is also present in the regional Euronext V.E Eurozone 120 and Europe 120 indices, which list the 120 most sustainable companies out of the 500 largest free-float companies in Europe and the Eurozone.
In the future, “we will continue to focus on empowering sustainable progress through decarbonization and the electrification of consumption, leveraging the enhanced digitalization of our company,” Francesco Starace added in conclusion.
