Note on methodology

The ENAV Group has prepared the Consolidated non-financial statement (hereinafter also referred to as "Statement") in accordance with the provisions of Article 5, paragraph 3 (b)) of Legislative Decree No. 254/2016 (hereinafter "Decree"). The document constitutes a separate report from the Report on Operations.

The Statement, prepared for the first year pursuant to Articles 3 and 4 of the Decree, in accordance with the Decree, contains information on the company’s impact on five thematic areas, namely the environment, personnel management, social impacts, human rights and the fight against corruption and bribery.

The vast reporting boundary as well the quality of the reporting reflect the principle of relevance (or "materiality"), the element envisaged by the reference legislation and which characterises the GRI standards. The GRI standards require to provide information based on the materiality analysis, which reveals the relevant and priority topics to "the extent necessary for an understanding of the company, its performance, its results and the impact produced" or which is able to substantially influence the assessments and decisions of stakeholders (see section "Relevant topics for the Group").

In preparing the Statement, the company has adopted specific principles and methodologies provided by the most recent standards published in 2016 by the Global Reporting Initiatives ("GRI Standards - GRI-referenced option"), the independent authoritative body which provides models for non-financial reporting. In particular, the Statement refers to the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards, published in 2016 by the GRI – Global Reporting Initiative as reported in the paragraph "GRI Standards used in this document" (see GRI Content Index).

It should be noted that where the Group considered it unnecessary to adopt policies related to the areas referred to in Legislative Decree No. 254/2016, this is linked to the existence of effective corporate practices which do not require it to adopt specific policies on the above mentioned areas. For this reason it should be noted that the terms Policy refers to formalized documents, while the term “internal practices” applies to practices and praxes.

This document was approved by ENAV Board of Directors on March 12th , 2018.

The Legislative Decree No. 254/2016, provides that the Statement shall be subject to a limited assurance as established by the International Standard on Assurance Engagements (ISAE 3000 Revised) principle. The assurance was carried out by the company EY S.p.A.

Relevant topics for the Group

On the basis of the provisions of the Decree and the principles defined by the GRI Standards, a materiality (significance) analysis of the non-financial topics of the ENAV Group has been carried out, which has allowed to identify all the aspects to report in the Statement.

The materiality analysis was conducted through three main steps: preliminary identification, evaluation and definition of the topics and, finally, their prioritisation.

The starting point of the materiality analysis were the instructions given by Legislative Decree No. 254/16, followed by the identification of potentially relevant issues on the basis of an analysis of the activities conducted by the ENAV Group, the characteristics of the sector, the approaches adopted by comparable national and international companies and the topics suggested by GRI for each economic sector. Subsequently, the topics preliminarily identified were discussed and evaluated by the top management during meetings, with the purpose of defining the most representative aspects related to the social and environmental impacts generated by the Group, as well as those topics that are able to influence the decisions of its stakeholders.

Finally, the topics identified were assessed by the same Departments based on a “priority scale” which reflected the relevance of the impact of the topic both for the Group and for its stakeholders. These topics are represented in the following materiality matrix.

In addition to the aspects represented in the matrix, the Group considers the topic linked to “Effective Governance” as an essential prerequisite for carry out its business activities.

The results of the materiality analysis did not identify as “material” water consumption and polluting emissions.

The table below outlines the scope of each material topic, highlighting both the internal (Group Company)) and external scope. To date, none of the topics reported in this document have a significant impact on entities external to the Group.

It should be noted that where the topic did not concern the whole Group, it was not considered relevant to the excluded company(ies) given the type of activity carried out and/or the relative geographical areas.

In addition, with reference to the topics linked to the personnel, the SICTA Consortium was also included in the 2016 scope (in particular, the relevant topics in which the SICTA Consortium is included for 2016 are "Employee relations", "Adequacy of human capital", "Equal opportunities",

"Health and safety of workers"). The SICTA Consortium was placed in liquidation on March, 28th 2017.

Finally, for topics related to "Employee relations", "Health and safety of workers" and "Waste management", information related to ENAV Asia Pacific Sdn Bhd was not collected.
