Elenia ranked third in Europe and fifth globally in the assessment of all infrastructure operators.
Elenia reached the number one spot among the electricity distribution system operators in the GRESB Infrastructure Assessment that focuses on sustainability. Seven electricity distribution system operators from around the world took part in the assessment this year. Globally, 393 infrastructure companies from different sectors took part in the GRESB Infrastructure Assessment. In the global overall results, Elenia ranked fifth. A total of 236 European companies took part in the assessment and, in this group, Elenia ranked third.
The GRESB assessment looks at the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance of a company as well as how it has succeeded in these three areas.
Elenia significantly improved its GRESB result in sustainability and achieved a total score of 89. The increase from last year was +8 units. This means that Elenia’s five stars in sustainability now carry even more weight than before.
“Our results concerning sustainability in this international assessment were excellent. These results allow us to clearly demonstrate our commitment to sustainability now and in the future. We are moving in the right direction. The GRESB assessment brings an international dimension to our development work, supplying us with information on the global development of the field of infrastructure,” says Elenia’s CEOTapani Liuhala.
The GRESB Infrastructure Assessment that compares the sustainability of companies in the infrastructure sector was arranged for the fourth time this year. Elenia took part in the GRESB Infrastructure Assessment for the first time in 2018 and was awarded five stars that year as well.
