Inside the Value Chain

We’ve overhauled the way we design, build and manage our power plants with sustainability at their core. By measuring the environmental footprint of Enel Green Power activities we mitigate their impact by creating shared value. This is our way to combine social and economic development with the circular economy.

Beyond the Value Chain

Suppliers: We value our suppliers who perform the most sustainably in the social, environmental and governance spheres and implement circular economy solutions.

Clients: Even in the negotiation phase, we help our clients identify projects that allow them to reach sustainable development goals.

 

Inside the Value Chain

Environmental conservation and caring for people’s health start out from our workplaces like construction sites, power plants and administrative facilities.

Sustainable construction sites

Starting from the conception and design phase, we plan our sites to be sustainable, maximizing the potential environmental and social benefits that the construction site and later the power plant can provide.

We recoup, reuse and recycle materials used in the construction of our plants. Energy efficiency systems help us reduce site emissions.

From the very beginning and throughout the process, we work closely with local communities to develop projects that can generate shared value in the areas that host our sites.
