These guiding principles were proposed by the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General, Professor John Ruggie, as the global standard of practice expected of all States and businesses in relation to Human Rights.
The Enel Group and therefore, Endesa, adapted our historic commitment to respecting and promoting Human Rights to these new guiding principles, integrating them in the management of our business activity.
In 2013, Endesa approved its Human Rights Policy governed by the recommendations of this Compact.
United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
In 2015, the United Nations General Assembly established the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, an Agenda that includes 17 economic, social and environmental Goals, a commitment which we also adopted in October of that same year, through Endesa’s CEO, José D. Bogas.
This commitment was ratified during the meeting organised by the Global Compact Network Spain between various important companies in the country, their executive committees and Ban Ki-moon.
The OECD Guidelines
The OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises are recommendations addressed by governments to multinational enterprises operating in signatory countries or that are based in these. They provide non-binding principles and standards for responsible business conduct in a global context.
At Endesa we are firmly committed to complying with the recommendations established by the OECD Guidelines in the territories in which we operate.
