The Group’s decision to place sustainability at the centre of its development is also rewarding from an economic point of view and it is particularly appreciated by investors.
For example, in terms of environmental sustainability, the fact that most of the Group's thermoelectric plants are connected to the district heating networks implies not only advantages in terms of air quality and reduction of emissions, but also protects the Group from the most significant turbulence in the electricity market.
The Group is part of the FTSE Environmental Opportunities index series, which represent the performance of companies with environmental opportunities, namely companies whose activities may represent added value solutions to environmental problems.
In particular, these indexes are the “FTSE EO All-Share Index” and the “FTSE EO Water Technology Index”.

From the CDP report – an independent non-profit organisation that collects, analyses and shares environmental performance data worldwide – Iren stands out for its environmental performance.
