The Neoenergia Group has published annual reports since 2004 and, since 2010, has followed the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) model for sustainability reports, as well as the supplement for companies in the electricity sector, also GRI, and the Manual of Elaboration of Socio-environmental and Economic-Financial Report of the National Electric Energy Agency (Aneel). It also meets commitments to the Global Compact and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Since 2017, it has been following the GRI Standards.
The information presented in the reports is annual and covers the companies controlled and managed by Neoenergia. Financial data are presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and are audited by a third party. The socio-environmental information was collected internally, based on corporate procedures, environmental and quality standards and certifications, and were not externally verified.
The identification of the priority and relevant topics for the company's stakeholders in its last report (2018) is the result of direct consultation on the perceptions of internal and external publics of the company based on issues that reflect macro trends in the electric sector and sustainable development. Made with external consulting support, the materiality process followed GRI Standards recommendations, with the support of the AA1000 standard, of the stakeholders' management.
The intersection of the public's visions of external stakeholders with the company, from the interface with its strategic pillars, policies and purpose, resulted in a materiality matrix that establishes the order of priorities for sustainable business management.
In the figure below, we present the priority and relevant topics addressed in our last sustainability report.
