2009 sustainability report

2009 sustainability report was prepared in accordance with the reporting guidelines of GRI - Global Reporting Initiative and is based on Terna’s objectives in relationship to its sustainability performance and its reporting of the results achieved.
As in previous years, the report was subjected to specific auditing procedures by KPMG (link alla pagina Global Reporting iniziative>Relazione)  and was approved by Terna’s Board of Directors.

The period concerned is 2009 and all the data regard the year ended December 31, 2009. However, significant events that occurred up to March 31, 2010 have also been included.

The main innovations in the 2009 report are:

  • the increase in the number of indicators, with the step up from the B+ application level to the GRI’s highest level, A+;
  • the change in the Group’s boundary following the sale of the Brazilian subsidiary Terna Participações in November;
  • the inclusion of references and links to the ten principles of the Global Compact, so that the report can also constitute the source of information for the preparation of the annual communication on progress.


The report is addressed ideally to all the stakeholders specified in the Company’s Code of Ethicsi.
