"Sustainability and social responsibility, transparency, innovation, loyalty, work safety and renewable energy development are some of the main commitments included in the Group’s mission". With these words Enel CEO Fulvio Conti described the corporate line regarding sustainability policies. These concepts are integrated onto the three pillars of corporate ethics: Ethics Code, Organizational model, Zero Tolerance to Corruption Plan.
This responsibility policy explicitly directs choices and strategies that are certified by a specific sustainability programme, defined by Enel in its "Sustainability plan 2011 – 2015", followed by the "Sustainability report" that verifies and confirms the achievements. Therefore, annually Enel defines CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) objectives and priorities, in accordance with the principles of the UN Global Compact, which it follows since 2004 in matters regarding the observance of values connected with human rights, work protection, environmental safeguard and anti-corruption actions.
This behaviour has produced tangible achievements for Enel, like the prestigious FTSE4Good index of the FTSE Group, which recently confirmed the Group's position thanks to its ESG (Environmental Social Governance) performance.
An achievement that increasingly strengthens Enel's leadership within the main sustainability indexes at a global level. Indeed, over the past eight years, the Group has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index Europe and in the World Index. Furthermore, in 2011 Enel was the only power company that was admitted into the CPLI – Carbon Performance Leadership Index of the Carbon Disclosure Project.
