After winning an award in 2019, the electricity multinational was nominated in three categories again this year.
Last year, after a Sustainability, Corporate Governance, and Investor Relations evaluation process, Enel Américas was the winner of the highest distinction of ALAS20 in Chile. The multinational has been nominated again this year as a result of the vote performed from April 30 to May 29, 2020.
"We appreciate this nomination because it is very important for the market to recognize that sustainability is an intrinsic part of our business," explained Maurizio Bezzeccheri, Enel Américas’ CEO and Head of the Enel Group for Latin America.
"The crisis the world is experiencing as a result of the pandemic confirms that we are on the right path and translates into a commitment to our customers, employees, suppliers, and the communities where we are present to face this challenge together," he added. The company, present in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, and Peru, is the largest private electric multinational in Latin America, with a net installed capacity of 11,257 MW and more than 24.5 million customers.
"According to our 2020-2022 strategic plan, 90% of Ebitda will come from business activities that generate zero direct emissions and of the $5.3 trillion dollars proposed as investment, 92% will go to businesses aligned with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals” said Aurelio Bustilho, Enel Americas’ CFO.
The nomination in this new edition of ALAS20 is also in three categories: Sustainability, Corporate Governance, and Investor Relations. “In recent years, we have witnessed a significant increase in stakeholders’ interest in measuring performance and good corporate governance practices. In line with that, we continually improve the transparency of our practices. As an example, together with Enel Chile, we are the only listed companies in the country that publish the detailed report on their tax contributions,” explained Rafael de La Haza, Head of Investors Relations at Enel Américas.
