MATERIALITY ANALYSIS

The dialog with our stakeholders is essential for our business as means to engage with those whose opinion should be taken into account. In this context, we have performed the following studies:

  • Stakeholders’ Survey
  • Energy Sector Specific Sustainability Topics Study
  • Sustainability practices in EDPR Survey

ENERGY SECTOR SPECIFIC SUSTAINABILITY TOPICS STUDY

In 2010, we performed a study to rank those topics identified as most relevant in the wind energy sector. As a basis for the study, a list of indicators was selected from the Dow Jones Sustainability Group Index and the Global reporting Initiative. these indicators were evaluated in two dimensions: maturity and importance. Maturity is an analysis of the relevance given by peer companies in their reporting literature. the second dimension, importance, is a measure of the relevance and exposure of these topics in public and opinion leaders’ communications weighted by the entity influence in the sector. the groups analyzed were industry opinion leaders, press coverage and public opinion leaders.

STAKEHOLDER'S SURVEY

In addition, we performed a survey to understand how our internal and external stakeholders look at the importance for EDPR of the major issues regarding Sustainability and Corporate Social responsibility.

The results of these surveys are presented in an internal vs. external stakeholders’ relevance matrix.

The materiality survey and the stakeholders’ opinion regarding sustainability topics were analyzed and were considered in the preparation of this Annual report, in order to address in detail those topics that really matter to our stakeholders.

“EDPR staff makes a concerted effort to understand stakeholder concerns and to minimize the impacts of the projects on neighboring facilities/residences.”

Furthermore, the surveys conducted during 2010 identified relevant information about our sustainability performance and other best practices that our company could adopt. this information will be analyzed and might support the launch of initiatives based on the results.
