Enel X joins the Carbon Disclosure Project
Enel X has joined the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) as a Gold Accredited Renewable Energy Solutions Provider. This means the two entities will work together on a shared mission: to support businesses in reducing their carbon footprint in order to reach the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and help keep the planet habitable.
What is the Carbon Disclosure Project and how does it work
CDP is a global non-profit organization that runs the world’s environmental disclosure system for companies, cities, states and regions. Companies report their environmental impact data to CDP, which issues scores that are widely used to drive investment and procurement decisions towards a zero carbon, sustainable and resilient economy.
In 2020, over 9,600 companies with over 50% of global market capitalization disclosed environmental data through CDP — in addition to 940 cities, states and regions. As well, CDP works with 590 investors who manage assets of 110 trillion US dollars.
This partnership will bring highly valued expertise to the many thousands of companies using CDP to disclose, and support them to accelerate their use of renewable energy … We are confident that Enel X's capabilities can support companies to implement more ambitious renewable strategies.

What it means to become a Gold Accredited Solution Provider
CDP partners with private sector players that have the expertise and the means to support other businesses in their efforts to take climate action — for example, by decarbonizing their supply chains and switching to renewable energy to power their operations.
Being a CDP Gold Accredited Solution Provider means CDP has vetted the company — in this case, Enel X — thanks to an extensive accreditation process that verifies that company’s capacity to help other businesses become sustainable through its services and solutions.
We need effective partnerships of this kind if we want to advance decarbonization: we will focus all our efforts jointly with CDP in growing opportunities for businesses to enhance the sustainability credentials of their operations on the road to building a cleaner community for all.
