In line with Principle 10 of the UN’s Global Compact, which states that “Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery,” Enel is committed to pursuing the fight against corruption in all its kinds, both direct and indirect, by applying the principles established under the pillars of its Anti-Bribery Management System (Organizational and Management Model 231, TZC Plan, Code of Ethics, Enel Global Compliance Program).
This commitment is confirmed within the anti-bribery policy in compliance with ISO 37001:2016 “Anti-bribery management systems.” In 2017, Enel’s anti-bribery management system achieved the certification of compliance with international standard requirements, which was confirmed by subsequent surveillance and renewal audits.
Enel has thus gradually extended the ISO 37001 certification process to its main subsidiaries, both in Italy and abroad, in line with the statements contained in our Sustainability Report and Consolidated Non-financial Statement, which can be consulted for further details. These subsidiaries include Enel Innovation Hubs Srl, which has an international network of Innovation Hubs. They are connected to the various local innovation ecosystems. Their purpose is to find startups and SMEs with technologies, products and services that can be transformed into interesting business solutions for other companies in the Enel Group.
