Sustainability, an objective that must be achieved through innovation processes, is at the heart of Enel’s Open Power strategic approach.Our strategy is part of the United Nations Global Compact Board and it is committed to concretely contributing to four of the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), regarding access to energy and education, contributing to the socio-economic development of the communities in which the Group operates and to the fight against climate change, and achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.
The Sustainable Supply Chain Project was launched aimed at standardizing across the whole scope of the Enel Group the criteria for monitoring companies from the viewpoint of environmental impact, safety and respect of human rights during the qualification and vendor rating processes and new operational practices were identified and applied regarding checks on the “Requirements of good standing”for suppliers
Loyalty, transparency, collaboration, improving fairness and transparency all along the supply chain, supporting information, exchange and innovation activities, developing projects in line with the principles of circular economy in a “Zero Waste” perspective, are all essential elements in the relationship with suppliers.
