In 2020, it published its first Integrated Annual Report, prepared in accordance with the guidelines of the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) and the Global Reporting Initiative's Standards. The content covers economic, social and environmental aspects, as well as the risks and opportunities mapped out and considered of interest to shareholders and other stakeholders.
First Integrated Annual Report
Companies controlled and managed by Neoenergia are covered, comprising 4 distributors, 6 hydroelectric plants, 17 wind farms, 2 thermoelectric generators, and 7 transmission companies in operation. Socio-environmental data referring to trading and service companies, a hydroelectric power plant (Belo Monte, in which the company has a 10% stake), 27 wind farms, and 2 photovoltaic plants under construction are not consolidated. The financial data have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). The socio-environmental and governance information was consolidated into a proprietary indicator management system based on corporate procedures, environmental and quality standards and certifications. The report was verified by internal audit and internal controls tool and verified by a third party by KPMG Assessores.
To support the production of content for the Report, a process was carried out to identify relevant themes to be prioritized in Neoenergia's sustainability management and in the content of the document. The work was based on the GRI guidelines and the AA1000 standard (Accountability 1000). The process included consultation with the company's main leaders and representatives of stakeholders, based on themes established by Neoenergia's controller, Iberdrola.
The crossing of the visions of the 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 image below, we present the priority and relevant topics covered in our last annual report.
