News Emitel Again Achieves 5 stars in GRESB Infrastructure ESG Assessment

In the 2021 GRESB Infrastructure Assessment, which measures companies’ performance in the areas of Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”), Emitel scored a record 90 points (out of 100), and has again received the coveted 5-star distinction. Emitel’s score reflects Emitel’s commitment to excellence in the care for the environment, society and corporate governance, and that related company policies and practices are consistently implemented.

The 5-star distinction is awarded by GRESB only to the top 20% of reporters globally.  This year, Emitel earned a record score of 90 out of 100 points, improving last year’s score by four points. The score ranks Emitel 5th in its peer group, among the top 100 companies of 549 participating and within the top 10% of global reporters for ESG management.

Emitel has been participating in the GRESB Infrastructure Assessment since its inception in 2016; the company has implemented a rigorous ESG program and continuous improvement measures, which are validated by Emitel’s score increases annually.

Emitel’s strategy has been created and implemented with consideration for all stakeholder groups – shareholders and employees, as well as clients and suppliers. Of course, we do not forget about the principles of sustainable growth, in particular the need to care for the natural environment. Such approach brings benefits to the company and contributes to the improvement of quality of life for all of us. This also allows us to build the value of our company – as the times when businesses were rated solely through the lens of financial results have long been gone.Andrzej J. Kozłowski, the Managing Director of Emitel S.A. said.

The awareness of ESG policies, practices and performance continues to garner focus globally, regardless of industry sector. Alinda is very pleased to see Emitel’s consistent, outstanding ESG performance as demonstrated by their continuously improving results in the GRESB survey. We wish to congratulate the entire team for obtaining such a high score. said Jim Metcalfe, Managing Partner at Alinda Capital Partners and the Chairman of the Supervisory Board at Emitel.
