LETTER FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
2020 was an atypical year that will forever be part of our collective memory. It was a year of changes and new work dynamics, and it was a year of enormous challenges, both personally and professionally. However, this year also helped us see what we are made of and the true value of life and people.
We remained fully committed to always do the right thing, champion people, and shape the future. Grounded in these values, we came together as a company and successfully met the challenges of an unprecedented year. I am certain that our renewed strength will continue to guide us as we move forward.
From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we understood that we had to prioritize the health and safety of our people. Do the right thing translated into incorporating strict measures that allowed us to care for the health and lives of our employees and their families, our communities, our contractors, and our customers.
In our effort to champion people, we made sure—and we will continue to do so—that workers who had to remain on the frontline to ensure the operation of our essential assets would be fully protected. In addition, we implemented programs to care for the physical and mental well-being of our work teams, we offered training courses, and built support programs so that our employees could work from home with the required equipment.
Shape the future became our motto. For many years, at IEnova we have been convinced that being visionaries and adopting best practices enables us to be resilient in face of any situation. Thanks to our forward-looking vision, we were well prepared to confront changing circumstances and demonstrate that innovation and adaptability are indispensable and inseparable, and always come hand-in-hand with an ethical framework.
At the Board of Directors, we have worked to reinforce and share our values. It is with immense pride that today I am witnessing how these values have become part of the daily lives of our superb team. Our employees are the source of our company’s successes.
Energy is a fundamental element for injecting dynamism in economic activities. The challenging circumstances of 2020 brought out the best in our people. It was thanks to all this that at IEnova we made possible what appeared to be impossible.
