Rome – Enel has been confirmed for the twentieth year in a row in the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) after the annual evaluation of companies’ sustainability practices performed by S&P through its prestigious Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment model. In the 2023 edition, around 260 electric utilities were assessed by S&P, and Enel reached a score of 87 out of 100.
Enel is one of the 8 electric utility companies listed in the DJSI World, together with its Spanish subsidiary Endesa. In addition, the Group’s South American subsidiaries, Enel Américas and Enel Chile, have been confirmed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Emerging Markets Index and Dow Jones Sustainability MILA Pacific Alliance Index, as well as in the Dow Jones Sustainability Chile Index.
Launched in 1999, the DJSI is today one of the main global indexes tracking the performance of companies leading the way on sustainability worldwide.
DJSI recognized Enel’s proactive role in tackling climate change and promoting a zero-emission energy model. Enel also excelled in other criteria focused on assessing responsible business management practices such as human rights, innovation management, market opportunities, water-related risks, and stakeholder engagement.
Furthermore, Enel’s sustainability leadership is globally acknowledged through the Group’s presence in several other renowned sustainability indices as well as rankings, such as the MSCI ESG Leaders Indexes, CDP Climate “A” List, the Euronext Vigeo-Eiris 120 indices, the FTSE4Good Index series, the ISS “Prime” rating, the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index, the Refinitiv TOP 100 Diversity and Inclusion Index and the Equileap’s Top 100 Gender Equality Global Ranking.
The Group is increasingly attracting the attention of Socially Responsible Investors, whose stake in the company is steadily growing, representing about 14.9% of Enel’s share capital as of end of 2022, more than double compared to 2014 levels. This increase reflects the growing importance the financial market gives to non-financial elements in the creation of long-term sustainable value.
