Voltalia improves again in the Gaïa index of the best-performing French stocks on ESG criteri

(MENAFN- VOLTALIA) The results of the Gaïa campaign, announced on November 15, confirm Voltalia's status as a responsible company and its management of CSR issues. For its fourth participation, Voltalia is ranked 84th among French stocks with the best extra-financial ratings out of a panel of 390 companies, and among the top five players in the “Utilities” sector.

Based on more than 170 extra-financial criteria (governance, social, environmental and external stakeholders), the rating assesses the degree of transparency and maturity of companies regarding their sustainable development policies, practices and performance.

At the end of the 2020 campaign, Voltalia obtained an overall score of 78/100 (for an average score in the sector category of 65/100). Its progress is steady (75/100 in 2019 and 71/100 in 2018) and highlights the concrete implementation of commitments made on issues such as health and safety, business ethics and the fight against climate change.

Voltalia's inclusion in the index also allows it to increase its visibility among SRI institutional investors.

"Our commitment to CSR has never been so important. We are very proud to see them recognized once again. They are at the heart of Voltalia's mission and determine our daily actions. I would like to thank all of our employees who, through their commitment, enable us to implement them" said Sébastien Clerc, CEO of Voltalia.
