Data of environmental management in Endesa in 2018
Our enviromental objectives

At Endesa, we are committed to achieving excellence in the environmental management of our business activity through the value chain. For this reason, we established the 2018-2020 Sustainability Plan with the objective of maintaining 100% of our generation and distribution facilities certified for International Standard ISO 14001. This objective, which was entirely fulfilled in 2018, is maintained in the new 2019-2021 Sustainability Plan.

Environmental management systems

In 2018, within the field of thermal generation, the integrated multisite certification has been renewed in accordance with the standards ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OSHAS 18001. In addition, the requirements of the ISO 50001 Energy Management standard have been integrated into the system, and have been certified in 20% of the plants, thus providing a firm, consolidated and aligned control and management system.

Moreover, 78.3% of the installed net power or capacity of all our thermal power plants is produced in plants registered with the European Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (‘EMAS’). Likewise, all port terminals are registered in EMAS.

Regarding renewable generation, we renewed the certification of our management system in 2018, covering all of our facilities (hydraulic, wind powered, solar and biogas), in compliance with the international standards ISO 14001, ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001.

As for distribution, all energy distributed by our company 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.

Regarding sales, we maintained the Integrated Management System (SIG) certificate in 2017. 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, including those related to quality and the environment. In late 2018, the technical and economic management activity of the products and services related to energy for industrial clients and public administrations expanded its scope of certification under standard ISO 901 for technical and economic management activities of the products and services related to energy for particular clients and small businesses.
