Atlantia is for the first time included in the stock index Euronext 120 Eurozone, representing a leader in sustainability in Europe
This inclusion follows Atlantia’s inclusion in the MIB ESG index, the first blue-chip index in Italy to feature leading public companies with a strong ESG track record, and it is once again a recognition of the Company’s commitment to integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities into its business strategy and throughout the process of creating value from its asset portfolio.
During 2021 the Company has seen significant improvements in its ESG ratings. GRESB Infrastructure Public Disclosure, the international agency that specialises in the assessment of infrastructure businesses, has upgraded Atlantia with a rating of B (up from the previous C) for ESG transparency; the Company ranks 2nd out of 8 infrastructure companies in the transport sector. The Company’s presence in the FTSE4Good index has been confirmed (used by market operators to create and assess responsible investment funds), and Refinitiv, which manages a global database for financial markets and provides ESG ratings for over 10,000 businesses, has included Atlantia among the 25 greenest stocks listed on the Milan Stock Exchange. The upgrade of the Company’s rating to BBB by the international agency, MSCI ESG Ratings, which specialises in assessing the sustainability performances of around 2,800 businesses, has represented another step in this successful path.
Atlantia also announced that the 5 airports operated by its subsidiaries, Aeroporti di Roma (Fiumicino and Ciampino) and Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur (Nice, Cannes and Saint Tropez), had received the highest level of carbon neutrality certification from the international body, Airport Carbon Accreditation, out of a total of 9 airports throughout the world classified in this category.
