Awards

The EDP Renováveis Investor Relations team was recognized at the 30th edition of the Investor Relations & Governance Awards in mid-September. The team also took home the award for Best Annual Report in the Non-Financial Sector for their 2016 report.

This year’s IRG Awards were presented on September 19 at the Convento do Beato in Lisbon. The awards recognize the year’s greatest accomplishments in the Portuguese business and financial markets, with winners determined based on policies and attitudes of transparency, the quality of information produced and investor relations.

According to jury president Manuel Alves Monteiro, "We know that a market culture has to have a strong weight, and must add a culture of risk, the search for balanced and sustainable capital structures, good corporate governance practices, strong regulation and a stable and adequate legal and fiscal framework. For this reason we believe that, over the last 30 years, the IRG Awards have done important work in spreading practices of excellence, rigor and transparency."

EDP Renováveis has been recognized with several IRG awards and nominations in past years. This is the third consecutive year in which the company has won the award for Best Annual Report in the Non-Financial Sector, and its seventh time overall.
