announced its ESG (environmental, social and governance) targets, which were
approved by the company's Board of Directors, and will be effective up until
2030. These objectives reinforce the company’s commitment and efforts to
promote the creation of sustainable value for its stakeholders. The initiative
also strengthens communication and provides clarity with regards to practices
integrated into the company’s day-to-day operations.
Included among the commitments made by
Neoenergia are: reducing the intensity of carbon emissions during the
generation of electricity, increasing diversity in the company in terms of
gender and ethnicity among leadership positions, increasing the number of
female electricians at the company, and ensuring that the large-scale suppliers
used by the company are classified as sustainable. These ESG targets will be
monitored, measured and disseminated on the marketplace in general.
In addition to these indicators, the company's results
with regards to aspects of ESG will be consolidated in annual publications such
as the Annual Report – ESG+F Statements, the Integrated Report and
the Fiscal Transparency Report. ESG targets have been part of Neoenergia’s business
strategy since the company first began operations 25 years ago and are
aligned with its commitments to the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact and
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), both of which are initiatives from the
United Nations (UN).
