Awards, ratings and rankings
For years, E.ON has scored well in key sustainability ratings and rankings. We also regularly receive external recognition for our sustainability activities – both regional projects and those with a wider focus. Below, we highlight awards, ratings and rankings that are relevant to our Group as a whole.
CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project) rated E.ON with an B in the CDP Climate Disclosure in the DACH region (German acronym for Germany, Austria, Switzerland) in terms of environmental reporting. The score is in the Management Band and thereby higher than the Electric utilities average of C, and higher than the Europe regional average of B-. This represents an acknowledgment by CDP of the quality, process and transparency of the data which E.ON publishes in the annual CDP climate change report. The reporting data provided by E.ON for this purpose was assessed independently. E.ON has published data on carbon emissions (CDP Carbon Response) annually since 2004.
E.ON named in Euronext Vigeo Eiris Indices
In June 2018, E.ON was once again included in the “Euronext Vigeo – Eurozone 120” and the “Euronext Vigeo – Europe 120”. The ‘Euronext Vigeo’ index family by French ESG rating agency Vigeo Eiris lists companies that have achieved outstanding performance in the areas of environment, social and governance. The evaluation is based on up to 330 indicators covering 38 sustainability criteria.
We do not want to promote sustainability only within our company, but also externally. Therefore we are involved in memberships, initiatives and support, amongst others, the United Nations “Global Compact” and the “Sustainable Development Goals“.
