Caring for Climate, the joint programme established by the UN Global Compact and the UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme) to promote the role of companies in fighting climate change strongly recommended that such companies should adopt the reporting standards established by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).
The Global Compact recently stated that when companies publish their strategies and climate change data based on CDP standards, they automatically abide to the reporting obligations required by Caring for Climate.
Enel, which joined the Global Compact in 2004, is totally familiar with these standards. In 2011, Enel was admitted into the Carbon Performance Leadership Index (CPLI), an index that includes the 29 FTSE Global Equity Index Series (Global 500) companies that have showed the greatest engagement in terms of strategies, governance, communication with the stakeholders and emissions reduction. Also in 2011, Enel achieved an excellent performancewithin the Carbon Disclosure Project Supply Chain, the CDP report that analyses the transparency of environmental performances along the supply chain.
Specifically, Enel achieved top marks, 100/100 in several areas, including emissions Reporting.
"CDP currently stands as a rigorous tool in reporting GHG emissions and climate change strategies on an annual basis. We therefore encourage signatories of Caring for Climate to utilize the CDP system as a way to manage their climate change progress and meet our own reporting standards", said Georg Kell, Executive Director dell'UN Global Compact..
Almost 400 companies from 65 countries are members of Caring for Climate and annually communicate their activities and achievements to fight climate change, including Endesa, which is part of the Enel Group.
