The concise Report

The 2012 Sustainability Report, prepared according to the G3.1 update of the Guidelines “Sustainability Reporting Guidelines & Electric Utilities Sector Supplement (EUSS)” of the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative), places it, for the fourth consecutive year, at the A+ level in terms of application of the guidelines, the highest in terms of completeness of information.

Linking of the GRI indicators with the 10 principles of the United Nations Global Compact is shown in a special table in the first part.

The Report is divided into five main chapters:

  • Terna Profile
  • Responsibility for electricity service
  • Economic responsibility
  • Environmental responsibility
  • Social responsibility

The Methodological Note provides useful technical clarifications for interpreting the information.

Boxes with greater details on the principal achievements of the year are included in the Report and, for the third consecutive year, comparisons with other companies for significant environmental and social indicators. These allows stakeholders to evaluate Terna's figures and performance not only compared to what was achieved during the two preceding years, but also in relation to other companies. For greater detail on the reference panels, please see the Methodological Note.
