Santiago, December 14th, 2018 - Enel Chile confirms its positioning in the FTSE4Good Index Series, in the Emerging Markets Index and Latin America Index categories, after the review corresponding to the second semester.
Developed by FTSE Russell, the global indexes company, belonging to the London Stock Exchange Group, FTSE4Good is a series of indexes conceived for measuring the performance of companies that stand out for their environmental, social, and corporate governance practices.
"This confirmation reflects the fact that the integration of the social, environmental, and corporate governance aspects in the business is a competitive advantage for companies, as the market becomes more aware of the companies’ performance with respect to their management in these fields. Enel Chile started out on a journey underscored by the sustainability of its entire value chain, which becomes a reality in bringing new technologies, such as electric mobility, for ever more environmentally sustainable cities, and in leading the implementation of renewable energy in the electric power matrix of the country. All of this, including the communities, our customers, and the persons working in the company in this journey”, stated Paolo Pallotti, Enel Chile’s CEO.
By means of a comprehensive methodology, FTSE Russell provides a multidimensional measurement of environmental, social, and corporate governance exposure and practices, providing the investment community with a tool for designing and managing a portfolio towards researching the ESG criteria. The FTSE Russell methodology is solely based upon public information, which demands a high transparency standard on the part of the companies, which is why Enel Chile’s confirmation in the index evidences the Company’s strong commitment with respect to promoting sustainability.
