Enel has been admitted to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) for the fifteenth consecutive year, the company announced.
Enel’s Spanish subsidiary Endesa has also been included in this year’s edition, marking the company’s eighteenth straight year. Enel and Endesa are two of the eight companies admitted to the index at the global level in the utility sector category. In addition, the Group’s South American subsidiary, Enel Americas, has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Emerging Markets Index and Dow Jones Sustainability MILA Pacific Alliance Index for the first time, as well as in the Dow Jones Sustainability Chile Index for the second straight year, while its Chilean subsidiary Enel Chile has been included in the three indexes for the first time.
“Our inclusion in a benchmark sustainability index such as the DJSI for fifteen straight years is yet another endorsement of the sustainability embedded in Enel’s business model. This sustainability is especially important in today’s challenging, competitive, and ever-changing scenario,” said Francesco Starace, Enel CEO and General Manager. “Enel continues to lead the energy transition, leveraging on all the opportunities offered by renewables, digitalisation and advanced energy solutions, thus maximising shared value for all our stakeholders.”
Enel especially stood out according to the criteria aimed at assessing the performance of electric utilities on leading the transition towards a low-carbon energy model. Towards this aim, the strong commitment to developing renewable energy, fostering sector digitalisation and launching new, innovative and sustainable solutions to anticipate the need of global customers, are some of the main best practices that contributed to this achievement.
In addition to this index, the Enel Group is listed on other leading sustainability indices, such as the FTSE4Good Index, the Euronext Vigeo Indices, the STOXX Global ESG Leaders indices, the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index and the Thomson Reuters Diversity & Inclusion Index.
