Atlantia: Sustainalytics upgrades once again sustainability rating
CET 16.01 Rome, 6 May 2022. Atlantia continues its path of concrete implementation of its sustainability strategy, confirming its commitment to being one of the best performing companies on this measure.
In response, the rating agency Sustainalytics has upgraded, for the second time this year, Atlantia’s risk rating to 8.8 from the previous 14.7 (on a scale between 0 and >40, where 0 indicates the best rating and >40 the worst). As a result of the upgrade, Atlantia now sits in the top 100 companies out of the approximately 15,000 covered by Sustainalytics. The rating of this international agency - a company controlled by Morningstar and specialized in assessing how effectively companies manage their ESG risks – serves as a universal and independent reference for investors, shareholders and analysts.
The rating upgrade has happened thanks to its strong corporate governance performance, which is reducing its overall risk, which is currently defined “negligible”.
Atlantia is part of the MIB ESG Index, which includes the 40 most sustainable listed companies in Italy, and of the Euronext 120 Eurozone index, consisting of the 120 most sustainable companies in the Eurozone. Its place in the FTSE4Good (a global index used by market operators to create and assess responsible investment funds) has also been reconfirmed. Last September, the international rating agency, MSCI ESG Ratings (which specialises in rating the sustainability performances of approximately 2,800 companies), upgraded Atlantia’s rating to BBB. Atlantia holding company was also included in Bloomberg’s Gender-Equality Index (GEI), which brings together companies from around the world who are most committed to fostering transparent practices and a fair and inclusive working environment.
