Sustainability Indices

We are fully open for discussion and disclosure of detailed information on specific areas of expertise, not only to shareholders but also to companies that assess ERG according to ESG parameters (Environmental, Social, and Governance). In this respect, it is important to point out that, in November 2015, the ECPI upgraded its rating of the Group by assigning it an EE+ score, proving that it has "a clear long-term strategy, an efficient operational management and a positive contribution to the environment and the society as a whole".

In 2016, Vigeo's rating of ERG was also updated on the basis of the 2015 figures. The total result is not available yet, but we recorded a 55% improvement of the areas assessed, compared to 2014.
