Corporate vision: values ​​and objectives | Enel Group


New era. New energy

For more than 50 years, Enel has brought progress to people around the world. Since the day Enel was founded in 1962, we have worked hard to enable businesses, nations and individuals to thrive by connecting them to electricity, gas and the right services for their needs.

In order to achieve this we have constantly embraced new technologies to make our energy more reliable, more affordable and more sustainable, from the introduction of the first smart meter to becoming the world's largest producer of renewable energy.

We are now at the beginning of a new, exciting era for energy; an open era of participation, where everyone is connected and has the opportunity to help tackle the world's big challenges.

Open Power

In today’s rapidly changing world we can make a real impact in tackling the major global challenges by multiplying the benefits of our presence and opening up

Openness is the key feature of our strategy. For this reason we are ensuring our services reach more and more people in a growing number of countries, boosting local economies and extending access to energy.

“Open Power for a brighter future: we empower sustainable progress”.  This is the approach that underpins our day-to-day commitment and that motivates all of us in the Enel team. We are Open Power to improve the future for everyone, to drive sustainable progress, to leave no one behind and to make the planet a more welcoming place for future generations. We are Open Power and our aim is to overcome some of the greatest challenges facing the world. This is to be achieved through a new approach which combines attention to sustainability with the best in innovation.

Sustainability will not develop without continuous innovation and for us innovation is meaningless unless it is oriented towards sustainability.

And just as sustainability does not only concern the environment, innovation is not limited solely to technology.

Inspiration and innovation can come from anywhere. That's why we are constantly looking outside our company for ideas, inspiration and know-how. We are working on modern collaboration platforms that allow everyone to contribute: a college student, an energy start-up, and a global multi-national industrial partner.

Only by rethinking the way we innovate can we truly disrupt the industry and develop technologies and solutions that have the power to shake up old markets and create entirely new ones.

Our mission

Open Power means opening energy access

This is an ambitious goal and we are pursuing it with the passion of people who want to change the world. Our mission, in detail, is as follows:

1. We are opening energy access to more people

We are expanding in order to reach more people and connect more people to safe and sustainable energy, especially in South America and Africa.

2. We are opening the world of energy to new technologies

We are pioneering the development and application of new technologies for more sustainable energy generation and distribution, in particular through renewable sources and smart grids.

3. We are opening new ways for people to manage energy

We are developing new processes that meet people’s real needs, helping them use and manage energy more efficiently, specifically through smart meters and digitalisation.

4. We are opening new uses of energy

We are developing new services that use energy to respond to global challenges, with a special focus on connectivity and electric transport.

5. We are opening new partnerships

We are working with a growing network of partners in research, technology, new product development and marketing in order to build new solutions together.

Our values

We work every day to improve the quality of life on the planet


Enel’s work is based on transparency – in the power plants, on the distribution grids, in the offices and stores where we meet our customers. Our success comes from the trust we build every day with the communities and people we work with, all over the world.


We are looking for people who want to improve life on our planet, who can offer solutions to the challenges of climate change, the growing need for clean energy, bringing electricity to the more than 1 billion inhabitants who still don’t have access to it.


At Enel, we drive innovation to make sure the best and most creative ideas don’t remain on the drawing board, but rather go to help improve people’s lives. If you want to make a difference and innovation is part of your mindset, then Enel is the place for you.


Enel has an ambitious vision for improving the quality of life with sustainable energy. In order to make this happen, we need creative people from a broad range of backgrounds, who can think out of the box, who like asking questions and see challenges as opportunities.


Sustainability, an objective that must be achieved through innovation processes, is at the heart of Enel’s Open Power strategic approach

In line with our Open Power strategic approach, Enel has placed environmental, social and economic sustainability at the centre of its corporate culture and is implementing a sustainable development system that is based on the creation of shared value, both inside and outside of the company.

This strategy has prompted us to become part of the United Nations Global Compact Board with a commitment to make a tangible contribution to four of the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These are: access to clean and affordable energy, the promotion of innovation, sustainable industrialisation and resilient infrastructure, the creation of sustainable cities and communities, and climate action, with a view to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.

​The integration of environmental protection and biodiversity into business strategies is a key factor in Enel's business plan.



“We are constantly working to improve the Group's governance and its environmental and social performance by using sustainability as an important guide in our choice of investments and industrial strategies”
Francesco Starace - CEO and General Manager
Carbon neutral in 2050

By 2030, approximately 30% of the planet's energy demand will be covered by green energy

We are committed to renewable energy sources, such as hydro, wind, solar, geothermal, biomass and cogeneration plants, and together with our partners we are developing new environmentally-friendly technologies.

Enel is working closely with the UN Global Compact and other projects to achieve this goal together.



“We are aiming to go further: by 2050, we want to become an entirely carbon-neutral company”
Ernesto Ciorra - Chief Innovability Officer
What's your power?

Today we have taken another step forward, beginning with one simple question: What’s your power?

Every one of us has the potential to fulfil, an ambition, a dream. With one open question we’re trying, first of all, to understand people’s personality, potential, and creativity: “What’s your power?”.

Supplying electricity is just the first step. We are much more than that: from smart meters that enable customers to optimise their consumption (according to their needs) to integrated packages for street lighting and lighting for artistic heritage, from smart agriculture powered by renewable forms of energy and supported by electric vehicles and drones, to smart grids and energy management services such as demand response. Each client has their own energy system.

Maybe we’re closer than you think
