Francesco Starace: Enel’s highest score ever in the DJSI

Enel’s CEO Francesco Starace: this recognition is an incentive for continuous improvement of environmental performance


It’s “an incentive to keep improving our environmental, social, and governance performance”: with these words, CEO Francesco Starace welcomed the news of Enel’s inclusion for the 19th consecutive year in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) and for the third year in the DJSI Europe. The index recognizes Enel’s commitment to a zero-emissions energy model that promotes the decarbonization of the global economy, open innovation, and responsible business management practices. In the S&P Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA), Enel achieved a score of 90 out of 100 for the first time, nearly three times the industry average and the second highest overall.

“This recognition by DJSI World is an incentive to keep improving our environmental, social, and governance performance, especially in today’s challenging, competitive, and ever-changing circumstances”

As  Starace highlighted, this recognition takes on additional significance when considering “today’s challenging, competitive, and ever-changing circumstances,” in which Enel is pursuing its commitment to sustainability. The Group also reaffirmed its position in the year-end reviews of the FTSE4Good Index Series and the Euronext Vigeo-Eiris indices at global, European, and eurozone levels. “By integrating innovation and sustainability into the Enel Group’s business practices, we’re leading the energy transition towards a zero-emissions model, protecting the environment and maximizing shared value for all our stakeholders,” Starace reiterated.

Enel is one of eight electric utility companies listed in the DJSI World, along with its Spanish subsidiary Endesa. In addition, the Group’s South American subsidiaries – Enel Américas and Enel Chile – have been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Emerging Markets Index and the Dow Jones Sustainability MILA Pacific Alliance Index, as well as the Dow Jones Sustainability Chile Index. In the 2022 edition of the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index, almost 250 electric utilities were assessed by S&P.
