Terna supports sustainability through adherence to the Global Compact principles and participation in several associations.
The non-profit organisation made up of businesses, bodies, associations and local
administrations engaged in reaching greenhouse gas reduction targets set by the Kyoto
Protocol and promoting awareness-raising and information initiatives and training within
the fields of energy efficiency, renewable energy sources and sustainable mobility.
Since the beginning of 2010, Terna has been a member of Anima: this
non-profit association, promoted in 2001 by the Union of Rome’s Industrialists
and Companies (today Unindustria), welcomes companies that are joined by
the objective of spreading a culture that blends profits with the creation
of well-being for the community.
Terna supports the activities of the CSR Manager Network Italia: this
association joins approximately one hundred managers and professionals
coming from companies of all sizes and from all sectors that are devoted to CSR themes.
The Global Compact Network Italia
The Global Compact Network Italia is a multi-stakeholder organization that in
line with the directives of the Global Compact Office in New York acts as
a national platform for implementing promotional activities and spreading
its principles throughout Italy.
Considering this objective the Network operates to spread information,
giving support and coordination to Italian companies and organizations
which resolve to share, support and employ a whole range of universal
principles in matters of human rights, labour, the environment and the fight
against corruption, thereby contributing to the accomplishment of a more
wide-ranging and sustainable global economy.
On 10 June 2013, the Foundation was established by the Global Compact Network Italy
that takes up the mission of the Network and aims to raise awareness of the United
Nations Global Compact (UNGC), supporting a rise in subscriptions in the country
and promoting the commitment to corporate sustainability by Italian member
businesses and organizations. Terna is one of the 18 organizations that participated
in the establishment of the Foundation, with a representative on the Steering Committee.
Foundation for sustainable development
Terna became a member in 2011. The Foundation's principle activities consist
in studying sustainable development issues – from a cultural and technical
perspective – through research, seminars and meetings.
Terna is among the promoters of the Sodalitas Foundation that was created in January
2008 and is involved in promoting CSR and dialogue among businesses and the
non-profit world. The Foundation’s activities consist in promoting, together
with the local, national and international authorities, the constant and ongoing
exchange between companies and their stakeholders: the objective is to contribute
in making CSR a development and competition factor.

In 2011, Terna joined the two-year Pilot Programme launched by the IIRC, the

Parallel to this, Terna began to move towards an Integrated Report,
introducing some IIRC indications in its 2011 and 2012 Annual Financial
Reports and Sustainability Reports, before publishing its first Integrated Report in 2013.
Having participated in the activities of the Pilot Programme, which concluded in
December 2013 with the publication of the first edition of the framework,
Terna has become part of the IIRC Business Network that sees international
companies and organisations exchanging experiences and best practice.

In 2011 Terna joined the LBG - London Benchmarking Group, an organization

social causes, for solidarity and corresponding social and corporate
impact obtained. The London Benchmarking Group promotes an aware and
effective corporate approach in charity initiatives.
