Our procurement processes are executed in accordance with applicable local legislation while ensuring the quality of the services provided in full compliance with standards of cost, efficacy, timeliness, and fairness. All procedures are aimed at ensuring the principles of open competition, equal treatment, non-discrimination, transparency, proportionality, rotation, and publicity. We have adopted strict codes of supplier conduct, and suppliers must follow the guidelines of the Code of Ethics and of the Zero Tolerance for Corruption Plan.

In addition to meeting the requested quality standards, the services of our vendors must also go hand in hand with the adoption of best practices in terms of human rights and working conditions. For our Group, it is of fundamental importance to evaluate our suppliers in terms of respect for personal dignity, non-discrimination, inclusion, freedom of association and collective bargaining, health and safety at the workplace, environmental responsibility, impact on communities, the dissemination of principles regarding respect for human rights throughout the value chain, and the respect of privacy.
Our individual and systemic approach to combating forced labor

Enel’s commitment to rejecting any type of forced labor, slavery, or human trafficking – as defined in International Labor Organization (ILO) Convention No. 29 – is outlined in our Human Rights Policy (principle 2.1.1. – labor practices section). We aspire to the principles of the Global Compact and ask that our suppliers respect the ILO Conventions.


Together with our suppliers, we work to define new metrics and to promote co-innovation towards decarbonization and the circular economy, which has a positive impact on both production processes and procurement techniques. For the 13 goods categories of most strategic importance, which currently account for more than 50% of total materials purchases, we require environmental product declarations globally in order to quantify, certify, and objectively report the impact of the entire procurement lifecycle (i.e. water consumption, CO2 emissions, soil impact, etc.). 

ISO 14001 or equivalent certification is always required for the product groups deemed to be at high environmental risk, and on-site audits of our contractors are also conducted.

The mental and physical health and safety of our people are the most relevant asset for us to protect throughout the whole life. Our contractors, too, are engaged in health and safety training and awareness programs. The goal of the Group is to increase risk awareness and promote responsible conduct so as to ensure that operations are conducted to high quality standards and accidents free.
