12RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AN PRODUCTION
Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
Enel bases its purchasing processes on pre-contractual and contractual conduct, focused on reciprocal loyalty, transparency and collaboration.
The performance of suppliers, besides guaranteeing necessary quality standards, must also be in step with efforts to adopt best practices for human rights and work conditions, occupational health and safety, and environmental responsibility. The Code of Ethics, Zero Tolerance of Corruption Plan, the Human Rights Policy, the Model pursuant to Italian Legislative Decree 231/01 and the Enel Global Compliance Program form the framework of purchasing activities and form a de facto guide and code of conduct for suppliers.
In line with the Open Power approach, Enel considers its suppliers as part of a single team, with individual characteristics that enrich the portfolio of solutions provided, with respect for local peculiarities and considering diversity and innovation an added value.
