(PRESS RELEASE) ROME, 7-Jun-2023 — /EuropaWire/ — Enel S.p.A. (BIT: ENEL), an Italian multinational manufacturer and distributor of electricity and gas, has once again been recognized for its outstanding environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices and transparency. The company has maintained its position in the prestigious FTSE4Good Index Series and the Euronext Vigeo-Eiris (V.E.) indices. Enel’s inclusion in these indices reaffirms its commitment to embedding ESG practices throughout its entire value chain.
Enel has been listed in the World 120 index of the Euronext V.E., as well as the Euronext V.E. Eurozone 120 and Europe 120 indices, which highlight the 120 most sustainable companies among the 500 largest free-float companies in the Eurozone and Europe. These indices recognize Enel’s dedication to sustainable business strategies and practices.
FTSE4Good has commended Enel for its transparency and practices on various topics, including biodiversity, health and safety, human rights, corporate governance, risk management, and tax transparency. The V.E. indices have recognized Enel for its exceptional performance in environmental strategy development, effective management of human capital, and fostering sound governance practices.
Enel’s commitment to sustainability extends to its subsidiary companies as well. Endesa, Enel’s Spanish subsidiary, has also renewed its position in the FTSE4Good index and all three V.E. indices. Additionally, Enel Américas and Enel Chile, Enel’s subsidiaries operating in Latin America, have been confirmed in the FTSE4Good Index.
