Integrated Reporting

Integrated Reporting follows the framework of the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) and, as a complement to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) methodology, has been helping companies to better communicate their value creation process to stakeholders.

As of 2020, we include the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) sectoral material topics and the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).


Annual Report

Committed to transparency in the relationship with our different stakeholders, we disclose our actions through annual reports.

The 2022 Annual Report presents our main results in 100 different indicators, considering all the set of Eletrobras companies. It is the primary source of environmental, social and governance information of the company and presents financial and operational performance data.

In line with our objective of disclosing reliable information, the 2022 Annual Report was audited by PwC Brasil, according to international verification parameters, and presents an Assurance Report. See also the Independence Statement, issued by PwC.
