Terna supports sustainability through adherence to the Global Compact principles and participation in several associations.

Kyoto Club

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.

CSR Manager Network

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.

Sodalitas Foundation

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.

IIRC - The International Integrated Reporting Council - Business Network

In 2011, Terna joined the two-year Pilot Programme launched by the IIRC, the international organisation committed to the research and testing of a framework to integrate financial, environmental, social and governance information in order to offer stakeholders full transparency.
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.

London Benchmarking Group

In 2011 Terna joined the LBG - London Benchmarking Group, an organization for measuring corporate resources (money, goods, work time) intended for 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.

This is the Italian arm of the international organization which works to fight corruption.
