In addition, in 2017, in the area of thermal generation, the Management System became integrated, incorporating the occupational quality, Health and Safety requirements according to the standard UNE-ISO 9001 and OHSAS18001, achieving use of a firm and aligned control and management plan.

What is more, 78.3% of the installed net power or capacity of all ENDESA thermal power plants is produced in plants registered with the European EcoManagement and Audit Scheme (EMAS). Likewise, all port terminals are registered in EMAS.

In addition, regarding renewable generation, ENDESA has expanded the scope of certification of its management system in 2017, extending it to all of its facilities (hydraulic, wind powered, solar and biogas), in compliance with the international standards ISO 14001, ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001.

In the area of distribution, all energy distributed by ENDESA and its associated infrastructure is managed under a single certified system, which guarantees identification, surveillance and control of environmental impacts that its facilities and operations could generate. That management system is based on international standard ISO 14001 and is audited annually by an official accreditation agency.

In July 2017, ENDESA Energía obtained the certificate for its Integrated Management System (SIG). This System certifies the capacity of the gas and electricity resale business to provide products that meet the customer's requirements, which comply with the applicable regulatory requirements and regulatory requirements regarding quality and the environment.
