Preparation of the report
The drafting of the report was preceded by the materiality assessment for respective aspects of ENEA Group’s operation in the economic, environmental, employee and social areas. The assessment was made based on the analysis of expectations of external stakeholders and the Group’s management and Employees, as well as the non-financial reporting trends existing in the energy sector.
The stakeholder expectations survey was conducted between 18 October and 12 November 2019 in the form of an on-line survey. It was addressed to selected representatives of various stakeholder groups: Employees of ENEA Group companies, their Customers, local communities in which Group companies operate, representatives of social partners or beneficiaries of the Group’s social activities, stock market analysts, suppliers, representatives of industry, environmental organizations and the media. Similar questions were also answered by Employees of ENEA Group companies taking part in the workshops held on 13 November 2019 at the ENEA S.A. headquarters in Poznań. The management expectations survey also took the form of an on-line survey, which was conducted from 21 October to 12 November 2019.
The results of these surveys as well the analysis of trends in non-financial reporting in the energy industry have been the basis for identifying important aspects of reporting. On the basis of these aspects, the team at the Corporate Social Responsibility office within the ENEA S.A.’s PR and Communication Department organized the process of collecting non-financial data from individual ENEA Group companies. Approximately 200 Group Employees were directly involved in this process.
