Sustainability Governance

Dialogue and shared planning

We believe that constant stakeholder engagement is crucial for a sustainable business.

This is why we have chosen to adopt a model of Sustainability Governance that is in communication with and open to structured contexts inside and outside the company: it is therefore through constant dialogue with a range of players that we identify and implement our sustainability activities.

Sustainability Governance Structure

During 2022, Edison adopted a Sustainability Governance procedure with the aim of indicating not only the role of all corporate and managerial bodies involved, but also of outlining a model of responsibility, in structural terms as well as in terms of macro-processes. The Sustainability Governance structure is based on the synergy between board and management level and founded on the guiding role of the Board of Directors and the focal role of the Control and Risk Committee.

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors has specific responsibilities in Sustainability Governance. It defines strategic guidelines, identifies medium/long-term goals and approves the Sustainability Plan of the Company and the Group.
