2021 Sustainability Report

Sustainability is an integral part of everything we do. To illustrate this, for the third year in a row, we have prepared our Sustainability Report based on GRI/SASB standards. Furthermore, in our strategy and in this report, we started to lay out the Sustainable Development Objectives (SDGs) that are priorities for our operations and in our relationships. The Report gives an outline of Eneva, that includes key performance indicators, and sets out in detail the actions taken with our stakeholders.
