Enel publishes Sustainability Report 2012: the first one based on materiality analysis
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) On its tenth year of publication, Enel's Sustainability Report 2012 has changed its appearance to become more user-friendly and concise, always being compliant with accountability standards. The changes respond to the need for informing stakeholders, in a more efficient way, about the economic, social and environmental effects of their business activities in compliance with GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) G3.1 guidelines, Accountability principles and UN's Global Compact principles. Enel's Sustainability Report outlines the values and principles that guide their Group, its activities and results, the goals achieved and those still to be achieved, areas of excellence and areas to improve, in observance of the commitments and obligations that Enel has vis--vis all stakeholders.
The Sustainability Report 2012 contains data on the 40 Countries in which Enel Group operates. Therefore, it can be considered as an indispensible tool for all those who intend to "measure" Enel's corporate social responsibility from an ESG - Environmental, Social, Governance point of view, thanks to more than 450 indicators.
Enel's Sustainability Report 2012 consists of about a hundred pages less than previous editions, but it doesn't cut core contents. It rather becomes more concise, transparent and straightforward through the "materiality" analysis, which helps evaluate Enel's commitment to integrating sustainability into business. "In practical terms, this means identifying those topics that, due to their importance and significance, are more central to Enel and its stakeholders," said Marina Migliorato, Head of CSR Unit. "As they are capable of exercising a stronger influence on decisions, actions and performance." After all, materiality is among the fundamental accounting principles adopted by the new released GRI-G4 standard and among the main guidelines from the IIRC - International Integrating Reporting Council.
For the seventh year running, Enel's Sustainability Report has scored a maximum A+ grade of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Application Levels.
