Developing and supporting sustainable businesses is a key priority, as well as a challenge, in every industry, including our own. Protecting the environment and the interests of all stakeholders is of crucial, strategic importance in the long-term value creation.
Strong financial stability is essential to maintaining competitiveness in the industry and to demonstrating that sustainable business models are beneficial to all of us. At the same time, investments in renewable energy, energy efficiency and grid development can create value for the society and for the economy.
To this end, we are committed to making strides in measuring social impact by taking an approach that clearly and reliably expresses the economic and social benefits of our investments for the economies in which we operate. Our integrated approach uses advanced economic modeling in line with the best practices of multilateral organization with the goal of providing rigorous, reliable and transparent assessments (at the local, regional and national level). These impacts are then expressed in terms of the GDP generated by our investments, of new jobs created, and of the wealth generated for the various locations in which our Group develops business.
