Enel awarded by Dow Jones for its commitment to renewable energy

Again in 2018, Enel has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index. A further demonstration of the quality of the group’s strategy in the fields of renewable energy, sustainability and innovation.

For the fifteenth year in a row, Enel has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World), the New York stock exchange’s index measuring the sustainability levels of thousands of global companies.

The DJSI World Index also includes Enel’s subsidiary, Endesa, in its eighteenth consecutive appearance. 

This year, Enel’s sustainability reached new, important targets. The Group’s South American subsidiary, Enel Americas, was included for the first time in the Dow Jones Sustainability Emerging Markets and Dow Jones Sustainability MILA Pacific Alliance indexes and, for the second year in a row, in the Dow Jones Sustainability Chile Index.

And Enel Chile was included for the first time in all three indexes.

In the sustainability level evaluation, Enel stood out in criteria aimed at assessing electricity utility performance in guiding the transition to low-emission energy models.

It has a strong commitment to the development of renewable energy, the promotion of the sector’s digitalization and the launch of new innovative and sustainable solutions to anticipate the needs of global customers.

Enel demonstrated its excellence in other criteria evaluating responsibility in business activities, like professional ethics, environmental management, cybersecurity, value chain management, stakeholder involvement and corporate citizenship.

Finally, the index recognised Enel’s commitment to the promotion of transparency and responsibility in social and environmental performance.

The goals achieved this year demonstrate once again how sustainability is one of Enel’s distinctive features.

Not surprisingly, the Group is also included in other important sustainability indexes, like the FTSE4Good Index, the Euronext Vigeo and STOXX Global ESG Leaders indexes, the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index and the Thomson Reuters Diversity & Inclusion Index.

Enel’s repeated presence on the most important sustainability indexes worldwide is due to a wide-ranging strategy for all stakeholders. The company places sustainability and innovation at the centre of its strategy, while facing some of the most important energy challenges.

Enel’s sustainability leadership is attracting more and more attention from ESG investors, whose investment in the company is constantly growing and represented over 8.6% of the Group’s social capital on 31 December 2017 (a 46% increase compared to 2014). This increase reflects the growing importance the financial market is giving to non-financial elements in the creation of long-term sustainable value.
