Sustainability Indexes

Corporate social responsibility goes further than the legal obligations to society and the environment. It is the recognition of human rights and the inclusion of ethical, social, environmental and consumer considerations into the business strategy. In this way it generates a return for shareholders and other stakeholders, and for society in general.

Sustainability indexes are an important tool for EDP to the extent that they allow the company’s sustainability performance to be measured and make a contribution to the continuous improvement of its operations, particularly in terms of its market orientation.
