Our sustainable strategy and an integrated business model enable us to contribute to the achievement of all 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. In particular, 4 of the 17 goals guide our value creation: SDG 13 "Climate action," SDG 7 “Affordable and clean energy,” SDG 9 “Industry, innovation and infrastructure,” and SDG 11 “Sustainable cities and communities.”
Our Sustainability Plan is defined by taking into consideration the results of the materiality analysis, and in a synergetic manner with the Strategic Plan. This Sustainability Plan is divided into specific goals in the short, medium, and long term, in order to make our path towards sustainable progress transparent and verifiable. Every year, these objectives are updated, and new targets are also defined according to a continuous alignment process with the strategic guidelines and the results achieved. This is in order to increasingly integrate sustainability along the entire value chain, by considering the potential impacts on the economy, the environment and people.
Environmental sustainability translates into a daily commitment to preserve and conserve nature and biodiversity, through the reduction and mitigation of the potential negative effects on the planet that may derive from the various activities of the Group. The aim is to protect present and future generations.
Growth accelerators, innovation, the circular economy and digitalization embrace and strengthen all the issues in Enel's sustainability strategy, accelerating the path toward sustainable progress. We are constantly striving to find innovative solutions to reduce the consumption of materials along the entire value chain and to develop business models and new digital solutions.
