Presence in sustainability indices and ratings

We work actively to be a benchmark company for investors who take social, environmental and ethical considerations into account in their investment policies, creating a long-term relationship with them.

We work actively to be a reference company for investors who take account of social, environmental and ethical considerations in their investment policies, generating a long-term relationship with them.

For the sixth consecutive year, in 2021 we have carried out a study to identify shareholders, with a special focus on those institutional investors who have a responsible investment policy and are active in non-financial matters. This study established that ENDESA has at least 248 socially responsible investors (of which 199 are located abroad and 49 are located in Spain), accounting for, on aggregate, 15.42% of share capital and 51.62% of floating capital. In compliance with Spanish legislation regarding identification of shareholders, the analysis was conducted at the level of investment advisor. It is not permitted to delve down to the level of the investment fund.

Since 2020 the study includes foreign and domestic institutional investors In previous years only foreign institutional investors were represented.

Endesa is aware that a prominent presence in the main socially responsible investment indices helps attract this type of investor and therefore the company pays great attention to this. Additionally, to obtain financing on favourable terms it is becoming increasingly important to be well rated by the various agencies and indices, as it is becoming generally accepted that genuine integration of sustainability into the management of the company reduces the risks associated with financing. Furthermore, presence on these indices serves as a way of recognising the sincere and rigorous commitment that Endesa has assumed regarding the integration of social, environmental, ethical and good governance aspects in terms of business management and decision-making processes, achieving a high level of performance. Finally, and even more importantly, it allows Endesa to step up its commitment by accurately identifying areas for improvement in terms of including sustainability in the company's management, i.e. it serves as a tool for continuous improvement in its approach to sustainability management.

In 2021, Endesa consolidated its leadership in the most important sustainability indices and ratings. The main accomplishments achieved include the following:

  • Renewal of the Company's inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) World for the 21st consecutive year, equalling the record-breaking score achieved last year (87 points)). This means it remains in seventh position in the full DJSI Family and in fifth position in the electric utility firms listed in the DJSI World.
  • It has confirmed its inclusion in the Euronext Vigeo-Eiris World 120, Europe 120 and Eurozone 120 indices. In this edition, the company achieved its record score of 76 points and came first in its sector for the first time.
  • It has renewed its presence in the FTSE4Good indices, improving its score compared with the previous edition and coming in first among conventional electricity companies for the first time.
