Enel has made its first appearance in the MSCI environmental, sustainability and governance (ESG) leaders index. Companies featured in the index integrate ESG factors into investment decision processes. This means Enel’s investment portfolio is resilient to long-term ESG risks. In 2019 Enel received for the first time the highest MSCI ESG rating (“AAA”), paving the way for the company’s inclusion in this year’s MSCI ESG Leaders Indexes, the most prestigious among MSCI’s index series measuring companies’ sustainability performance.
Enel’s increase in renewable energy investments and its efforts to meet carbon emissions goals aligned to the Paris Agreement have led to the company’s inclusion in the index. Enel has committed to a 70% reduction in its direct greenhouse gas emissions per kWh by 2030 with respect to 2017 levels.Source : https://www.smart-energy.com/industry-sectors/finance-investment/enel-reports-first-appearance-in-the-most-prestigious-sustainability-index/
