Structure of the Report

The organization of the Report in chapters has remained the same as in the previous editions. After Terna’s profile, the Report maintains the division of the topics in four main sections, corresponding to the triple bottom line – economic, environmental, and social – typical of sustainability reports, preceded by the section on responsibility for the electricity service, which is peculiar to Terna.

In each of the chapters dedicated to the four areas of responsibility, the description of the topics is organized in the same way as last year. Each chapter begins with an explanation of the management approach to the specific area. This is followed by several thematic sections, which integrate in a single text both the precise information required by the GRI Guidelines and the in-depth analysis that Terna considers important to provide. In order to make the Report easier to read, the information regarding GRI indicators is indicated by the related marker in the margin of the text next to the relevant paragraphs (the indicator marker is next to the title if the entire section is considered relevant).

The Report is completed by several tables with additional numerical indicators and a glossary explaining the meaning of technical terms specifically regarding the electricity industry. At the beginning of the “Indicator tables” section, a table is included showing all the changes with respect to the additional indicators provided in the 2010 Sustainability Report with the related explanation.
