ENGIE sees sustainable development as contributing to the Group’s ability to create long-term value through the joint development of sustainable business and appropriate management of non-financial risks. Non-financial ratings agencies focus the majority of their audit on how companies manage these risks and possible controversies arising from it. Their CSR performance rating is not only a measure of external recognition, but also provides essential guidance for the process of improving how companies manage these CSR risks.
External assessments and recognition
The non-financial risk management assessments of ENGIE conducted by ratings agencies provide external, independent recognition of the quality of its non-financial processes. They therefore provide additional input to the interactive dialog between the Group and certain stakeholders, such as investors, shareholders, customers, the media and even NGOs.
RSE Performance improvement
Because the non-financial performance of ENGIE is integral to its overall performance, it is regularly assessed by ratings agencies. Since these agencies work on the basis of their own benchmarks, their individual analyses provide different and complementary perspectives of the overall CSR performance of the Group.
ENGIE incorporates the analytical outcomes of all these ratings into its continual improvement process.
