Sustainability and Climate Change

Innovating for a regenerative future

We must all collectively come together to innovate our approaches to sustainability, climate risks, energy transition and the various associated challenges brought on by our changing climate.

Leaders must start to integrate innovation for purpose into their decision making. With climate change set to create a number of economic, business and social challenges globally, the leaders of tomorrow need to embrace a regenerative mindset across their operations, supply chains and products & services.

We are Committed to a Sustainable Future

We cannot create value for ourselves if we do not create sound economic and social conditions for our stakeholders, but if we want to create this shared value we must innovate, and we cannot innovate if we are not open to input from the world around us. This is the virtuous circle at the foundation of Enel’s approach and perfectly embodied in the partnership with InnoCentive,” said Ernesto Ciorra, Enel’s Head of Innovability.
