Santiago, February 01, 2019. With the aim of promoting and consolidating an ethical and transparent culture in its companies, the Enel Group in Chile has obtained the ISO 37001 certification for the companies Enel Chile and Enel Generación Chile, an international standard that recognizes that companies have a solid anti-bribery management system in place.

This consisted in a rigorous analysis of the Companies’ main activities in which employees from all areas were interviewed.
"The Enel Group has been working proactively for many years to design, implement, and maintain a compliance system that is inspired by the best international practices. Obtaining this certificate places us in a leading position in the region in the management system for the prevention of all crimes related to corruption, which is also a challenge since we have to keep our standards very high," stated Raffaele Cutrignelli, Enel Chile’s audit manager.
