We have integrated the United Nations international reference frameworks for sustainable management into our strategy.
ENDESA has adopted the main international reference frameworks promoted by the United Nations for sustainable management as a key factor in the process of building a new global and sustainable energy model. We therefore maintain a firm commitment to the Ten Principles of the Global Compact, the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the Sustainable Development Goals.
The ten principles of the Global Compact
United Nations initiative
Creation of the ten principles of the Global Compact
We were one of the first Spanish companies to join the United Nations Global Compact. We did this in 2002, incorporating the principles of this pact into our corporate integrity and sustainability policy and strategy regulations.
In 2019, we reached the advanced level, the top category awarded to companies that show a high level of performance on sustainability and adopt and report on a set of good corporate sustainability management and governance practices.
Currently we are members of and actively participate in the Executive Committee of the Spanish Network of the Global Compact, the national platform in charge of promoting these principles in the Spanish business sector.
The United Nations Global Compact establishes these 10 universal principles to promote corporate social responsibility.
