Enel’s commitment to biodiversity
Enel commits to achieve No Net Loss of biodiversity for new infrastructures by 2030, starting implementation on selected projects in high Biodiversity significance areas as of 2025.
To reach this goal, Enel will operate in line with the mitigation hierarchy principles, to avoid, minimize and recover impacts on natural habitats and species that are threatened, endemic or restricted-range.
Moreover, Enel commits to preserve forests and in case deforestation cannot be avoided, Enel pledges to restore/benefit areas of an equivalent value in line to No Net Deforestation principle. Enel will not build new infrastructures in UNESCO World Heritage Natural Sites.
Enel incorporates the assessment of nature-related risks and opportunities into all its business activities to align its risk management strategy and processes; it is also committed to the assessment by 2025 of 100%(1) of the relevant assets in operation in order to update, where necessary, the action plan associated with them.
