Sustainability Policy

Iren's Sustainability Policy is defined to guide the Group's decisions and to make concrete commitments to ensure the responsible management of the business. It is developed to guide the integration of sustainability issues at strategic and operational levels and to foster awareness of the Group commitments in pursuing sustainable development in the medium and long term.

Managing and monitoring major business risks, in order to contribute to the sustainable success of the entire Group, is the goal of the Internal Control and Risk Management System (“SCIGR”). The Board of Directors defines the guidelines of the SCIGR and assesses its adequacy with respect to the characteristics of the enterprise and the directions expressed in the guidelines.

ESG and Climate Risks

The risk management system integrates within it, in line with the governance and strategy adopted by the Group, the assessment of sustainability aspects. For each risk category, provided in the Group’s Risk Map, environmental, social and governance (ESG) impacts are assessed. Of particular importance are the risks and opportunities related to climate change, for which a special Risk Policy has been developed.
