A standard for Corporate Social responsibility
Edison began a review process to determine whether its corporate
responsibility activities complied with the principles set forth in
26000 Social Responsibility Guidelines.
The first phase of the project led to the identification of the scope of implementation of the issues covered by the standard and the definition of a methodology to determine which issues were most relevant and should be targeted. Based on the key issues thus identified, an assessment was carried out in 2011 to determine the level of compliance of corporate responsibility activities with the seven “core subjects” defined in the Guidelines: governance, human rights, labor relations and working conditions, the environment, fair operating practices, consumer issues, and community involvement and development.
The findings of the assessment, which were presented to the Steering Committee, the Chairman and the Audit Committee, showed that the level of conformity with the ISO 26000 Guidelines was quite good: about 70% of the activities required by the Guidelines and identified as being relevant that were analyzed were found to pose a low or virtually non-existent consistency risk. The assessment also helped develop useful elements for the definition of a new sustainability action plan for Edison and the development of new projects.
The Company plans to repeat this type of assessment in 2012.
Edison’s mission is to supply its customers with energy
and high-quality services.
