"Sustainability and Circular Economy in the Supply Chain Webinar” was successfully held on September 6, 2022, aimed at our current and potential suppliers.
The main purpose of the event was to share Enel's vision to promote a Sustainable Supply Chain with focus on Circular Economy. The Sustainability and Circular Economy strategy of our company was presented and its inclusion in the Purchasing and Contracting Processes carried out by the Procurement Management to meet the needs of our different lines of business.
Raúl Puentes, Head of Procurement Chile, commented that "Circular Economy presents us with the challenge of getting involved with our suppliers in the early stages of the design of services and products, as this is the only way to achieve an efficient use of resources throughout their life cycle and to reaffirm our commitment to the environment".
Natalia Correa, Head of Circular Economy, added that "Enel has integrated the Circular Economy at a strategic level through five business models: circular inputs, life extension, shared use platforms, product as a service and new life cycles. Pillars that we are implementing to accelerate the transition to a sustainable business model".
In turn, Javiera Medina, buyer of Market & Staff said: "At Enel we have set ourselves the firm purpose of working together with our suppliers on circular economy issues. We have developed this webinar to generate the necessary culture at the level of our potential and current suppliers, detailing its importance and value in the generation of a sustainable supply chain. We are committed to continue in this line of dissemination and exchange of knowledge and experiences with our suppliers".
This meeting activity is aligned with the implementation of Enel's Strategic Sustainability Plan.
