Evaluation of Ethical Performance
At EDP, ethical performance is assessed by taking account of matters such as stakeholder perception and the culture and management indicators that are consolidated in the Ethicis index, the Index of Corporate Ethical Performance.
In addition to this index, a report, exclusively on ethics, is published annually, outlining the most important initiatives related to ethics and presenting an assessment of ethics complaints in the Group. In order to improve performance, EDP annually compares its practices with those of companies who have achieved recognition in this area. The Ethisphere ranking is an example of this, with EDP being recognized in 2017, for the sixth year running, as one of the "World's Most Ethical Companies". Similarly, EDP has already achieved the maximum score in the area of "Bribery prevention" in the FTSE4Good index, maintaining an outstanding position in "Codes of conduct / Compliance / Corruption and bribery" in the Dow Jones Sustainability indexes.
