A no-nonsense, measurable and multi-faceted approach leads to sustainability and the Creating Shared Value model, as it changes for the best the lives of people and communities where we operate.
Protecting biodiversity is an opportunity for sustainable development
Our journey through our most interesting sustainability programs developed in different countries continues. In Brazil, a project that protects biodiversity combines environmental education with defending local flora and fauna; it has already recovered over 600 hectares of land in twenty of our power plants, where we\u2019ve planted local species of plants and conducted a census of animals at risk of extinction.
Goal 5: the KAPADA project, empowering rural India\u2019s women weavers
The need to promote gender equality is particularly strong in rural India and that is why we are supporting the KAPADA project. It trains young women to become self-employed weavers, and therefore financially independent in a patriarchal society.
Gilberto Gil and the Green Power of Music

Protecting bees while creating value: mission accomplished, in Kafireas
Kafireas is our largest wind farm in Greece. It is also a star of our sustainable approach: thanks to a project that helps raise the profile of local honey production in the area with a designation of origin label, we have established a positive relationship with the local community.
Goal 5: Liliam Ju\u00E1rez, a story of talent without barriers
On the occasion of International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) we\u2019d like to share the story of our colleague Liliam Ju\u00E1rez, an engineer at EGP hydroelectric in Guatemala, who, in spite of the gender gap, developed her career in a professional environment that until very recently had no room for women. This is the first chapter in our \u2018Goal 5\u2019 series.
When sustainability bridges the digital divide
During lockdown, Endesa and Fondazione Endesa, in collaboration with EGP Espa\u00F1a, provided laptops and internet connection to 5,000 children and teenagers with financial difficulties, and organized digital skills courses for tens of thousands of teachers and students in the areas where the Enel Group has renewable and thermal generation assets. This, too, is sustainability.
