Since 2004, Enel has been a member of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), of which it is a signatory of the ten founding principles related to human rights, labor standards, environmental protection and anti-corruption. The Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact are derived from: the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the United Nations Convention Against Corruption.
In 2011, it became part of the Global Compact LEAD, a group that represents the world’s foremost sustainability leaders in the private sector (about 40 in 2017). Furthermore, in 2015, the CEO, Francesco Starace, was appointed as a member of the Global Compact Board.
Every year Enel informs its stakeholders of the progress made and results through a Communication on Progress document which represents not only an important proof of the commitment that companies take on by joining the Global Compact but also a useful tool to facilitate training, stimulate dialogue and promote concrete actions allowing the sharing of experiences among those taking part in the initiative.
The Group's commitment within the UNGC is also confirmed by its presence in numerous initiatives such as the Caring for Climate and the Women's Empowerment Principles.
In 2018, Enel actively participates in four Action Platforms: Financial Innovation for the SDGs; Reporting on the SDGs, Pathways to Low-Carbon & Resilient Development, Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions.
