The Sustainability Plan: our commitment

Our sustainability strategy is embodied in our Sustainability Plan, defined taking into account the results of the materiality analysis, in synergy with the Strategic Plan, and translated into specific short-, medium- and long-term goals in order to ensure the transparency and verifiability of our journey towards sustainable progress. Every year, these objectives are updated in accordance with a process of continuous alignment with the business strategies, with the results achieved and best practices in order to increasingly integrate sustainability along the entire value chain.
At the heart of our sustainability strategy is our ambition to achieve zero emissions by 2040, thanks to a sustainable business model based on the development of generation from renewable sources and facilitated by the security and reliability of the grid and the clean electrification of consumption. In all our activities, we always take into account the needs of our stakeholders. In this context, innovation, digitalization, circular economy and sustainable finance act across all sectors and accelerate growth. A pathway of sustainable growth that is taken in respect of nature and of human rights, with the support of a sound governance structure.

The Sustainability Plan 2023-2025 reinforces our decarbonization commitment, considering all Group emissions and confirming our commitment to achieving “No Net Loss” in terms of biodiversity in the development of new infrastructure from 2030, focusing in particular on areas of high biodiversity importance, with respect to forest conservation and the preservation of protected areas. A new objective was defined related to the overall well-being of Enel people, as a factor enabling the development of innovation potential.
