Enel Green Power is looking for new tools and techniques, enabling strategies aimed at improving the environmental sustainability and biodiversity preservation of its renewable installations, as photovoltaic plants both on land and floating, wind farms and/or hydroelectric plants. These solutions could be applied at all stages throughout a project’s life cycle, from early design, through the construction, operations and the decommissioning for new and existing plants.
The protection of biodiversity is one of the most important values by which a Company’s sustainability is measured. Preserving ecosystems and species means respecting life, the Planet’s natural heritage, places, and communities’ symbols. The preservation of biodiversity is key in the fight against climate change: an effective implementation of nature-based solutions could be an additional lever to reach the target of maintaining global warming below 1.5°C by 2030.
Enel Green Power (EGP), a global leader in the development and management of energy production from renewable sources (wind, solar, hydroelectric, and geothermal), is aware of the value of the ecosystems and of biodiversity and is committed to the responsible management of natural resources along all of the phases of its plants worldwide, starting from the design, construction, operation and decommissioning.
The protection of biodiversity is a strategic objective of Enel’s environmental policy. It is regulated by a specific internal policy, which defines the guidelines for all the Group’s biodiversity protection initiatives. EGP has an integrated ecosystem-based approach to preserve the biodiversity and to promote the ecosystem services through an effective implementation of nature-based solutions to maximize environmental benefits and minimize ecological impacts.
With this initiative, EGP is committed to reach even more challenging targets, in order to increase its sustainability, looking for innovative strategies and models to preserve local flora and fauna, to be complementary with the initiatives already in place in its plants.
