Working on the front line with the United Nations
In 2004, we joined the United Nations Global Compact. Our commitment and investment have grown year on year and we are now directly involved in four of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We are driving growth in social, economic and environmental sustainability.
For us energy is a way of incentivizing social, environmental and economic progress
Producing clean energy from renewable sources is just the first step toward a new sustainable model for developing, building and operating our plants.
We work each and every day to create value in all the contexts in which we have a presence. Our aim is to combine our industrial goals with the socioeconomic development of the areas where we operate. We build solid, positive relationships in order to achieve sustainable and enduring results.
We have made our business model sustainable along the entire value chain and we have organized it according to the various different geographic, social and economic contexts involved. We continue to anticipate the future and work with our stakeholders to ensure that society enjoys sustainable progress.
The adoption of a Circular and Sustainable model is fundamental to us. It is essential to integrate technological development into a broader Circular Economy strategy, from the design phase to the choice of raw materials, the energy used, to operation, reuse, remanufacturing, down to the final recycling of an asset.
Our role as an enabler is based on taking the long-term view and on sustainability. This means we can create shared value for our clients, the communities we work in, and for our shareholders.
Our ambition to help build a more equitable and inclusive society along the entire value chain is at the very heart of our strategy. It is something we will achieve by protecting the environment we live in and creating opportunities for the future both for the company itself and our stakeholders without leaving anyone behind.
We are constantly innovating to find increasingly efficient ways of generating, distributing and using energy
Innovation does not just mean technology: it is the result of a major cultural shift that is helping us to relate to the world in a new way.
This is why we talk about Open Innovation because it enables us to open ourselves up to the outside world, to industrial partners, universities, research centers, startups, colleagues and clients.
The result? A perfect ecosystem that encourages exchange and crossovers, and which also allows us to work closely to invent innovative solutions that meet society’s new needs.
The Hubs are genuine incubators where different ideas and solutions come to life and come together. This means we can identify the areas of innovation in localities were it is growing most rapidly.
We want to give all of our stakeholders, both in-house and external, a voice. This is why anyone can use our Open Innovability® crowdsourcing platform to suggest sustainable innovation projects and solutions for the challenges we are facing.
Thanks to renewables, the coal phase-out, electrification and green hydrogen, we are leading the transition to a sustainable energy system
As a global leader in the energy sector, we are driving the transition to a more sustainable system that is essential to the planet’s future. We can make this happen both by accelerating renewable energy production all over the world with increasingly ambitious targets, and by implementing our decarbonization and electrification strategies.
Electricity produced from renewable sources represents the most efficient and cost-effective solution for driving the energy transition.

The strategy for accelerating the ongoing transformation
To make a difference in a world in which energy is a constant challenge, we have to multiply the progress made so far.
This is why we are offering our products and services to growing numbers of people all over the world, feeding into local economies and expanding access to energy.
Openness is one of the basic principles underpinning our strategic and operational approach: it helps us to tackle the challenges of the energy transition. Indeed, we believe that these challenges can be met through innovation, sustainability and collaboration.
Ideas for the future is a series of online events in which experts from Enel, the business and academic worlds discuss innovative ideas that can contribute to sustainable progress.
The answers to the greatest challenges the future holds in the words of professors from some of the world’s finest universities.
Powering the most important international track-based electric vehicle competitions, Enel X Way develops the technologies that are revolutionizing the electric mobility industry, from the track to the road.
Enel’s competition for 14 to 20 year olds is designed to stimulate scientific thinking and creativity.
