Corporate social responsibility

One of Terna's defining characteristics is the adoption of a sustainability-led approach which has been integrated into its business policies, processes and management systems. The goal of this approach is to generate value from and enhance the asset base of management best practice, and to assist in drafting the Company’s ethical, environmental and social policies and objectives. The Parent publishes its results in this field in an annual sustainability report, which is available for
viewing on the corporate website at www.terna.it.
Terna’s commitment to corporate social responsibility won the Company a number of awards in 2010 from specialised non - financial performance (environmental, social and governance) rating agencies. In November 2010, Terna was confirmed as part of the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index, on which the world’s 300 top performing companies in sustainability are listed (of which just 12 are Italian enterprises). Additionally, again in November, Terna was included in the Dow Jones
Sustainability Index Europe and in the new FTSE ECPI Italia SRI indexes, the first sustainability indexes consisting of only companies listed on the Italian Stock Exchange: Terna is present both in the Benchmark index and the Leaders index.
