Abstract: This report addresses the impact of electricity provision by Endesa, SN Power and AES on sustainable development in Latin America. On the basis of a theoretical framework of indicators for sustainable electricity provision, the report examines the corporate social responsibility (CSR) policies and practices of these three transnational corporations. Each company’s headquarters-level policies are analysed and then compared with the results of empirical research in four case studies of the situations on the ground in Argentina and Peru. Through the analysis and the formulation of conclusions and recommendations based thereon, the report aims to improve the quality, the poverty-reducing capability, and the contribution to sustainable development of electricity provision in developing countries.
