ROME, 23-Sep-2016 — /EuropaWire/ — Further recognition of Terna’s sustainability; the company has been confirmed in the STOXX Global ESG Leaders Indices for the sixth consecutive year.

Terna is present in these indices created by the company STOXX Limited which, on the basis of sustainability performance, selects 345 companies among the 1,800 stocks present in the initial international basket, the STOXX Global 1800 Index.

In particular, to obtain access to or confirmation in the ESG Leaders indices, a company must stand out in at least one of the three areas of analysis – environmental, social and governance – for inclusion in the relative index, the STOXX Global Environmental Leaders, the STOXX Global Social Leaders or the STOXX Global ESG Governance Leaders.

Thanks to the excellent performance in all areas of analysis, Terna has been confirmed in all three indices. There are a total of 5 Italian companies, and 8 utilities at the global level that can boast the same result, and there are only 14 Italian companies, including Terna, in the STOXX Global ESG Leaders.

In addition to inclusion in the STOXX ESG indices, Terna is also present in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, where it has the highest environmental performance in the Electric Utilities sector, and in all the other major sustainability indices, including FTSE4Good, Euronext Vigeo, ECPI, MSCI, ETHIBEL SUSTAINABILITY INDEX (ESI), GC100 (United Nations Global Compact).

The ESG Leaders indices are characterised by transparency in the selection criteria – based on indicators suggested by the EFFAS (European Federation of Financial Analysts Societies) and by the DVFA (Society of Investment Professionals in Germany) – and in the scores attributed by the rating agency Sustainalytics to the companies evaluated.
