“We are glad to see that the importance we attach to sustainability, which is a key driver of our commercial and industrial decision-making, is being widely recognised. The Group’s continued inclusion in the FTSE4Good index since 2011 shows that this recognition is growing. We will continue to hold ourselves to demanding environmental, social and governance standards, and to continuously increase our leadership in sustainability in the energy industry”
Created by the global index company FTSE Russell, FTSE4Good is an equity index series designed to support investment in companies based on their ESG performance. Businesses included in the FTSE4Good Index Series meet a variety of environmental, social and governance criteria. In addition to these rankings, the Enel Group is also included in the world’s other leading sustainability indices, including the Dow Jones Sustainability Index World, the Euronext Vigeo indices, the STOXX Global ESG Leaders indices and the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index.
Enel’s commitment to delivering the highest sustainability standards has attracted the increasing interest of socially responsible investment funds (SRIs): based on the latest figures as of December 31st, 2015, SRIs own 7.7% of Enel’s total outstanding shares (5.9% recorded at the end of 2014), equal to 10.3% of the company’s free-float (8.6% as of December 31st, 2014).
