REN's Approach

 



Politics

The Sustainability Strategy  triennium took account of seven dimensions of sustainability in order to provide a strategic answer to the main issues identified by stakeholders, counterpart companies and the main regulatory and business trends:

  • Code of conduct;
  • Technical and specialised knowledge of the energy sector;
  • Risk management;
  • Corporate social responsibility;
  • Stakeholder engagement;
  • Climate change and consumption of resources;
  • Communication.

Management Systems

For REN, environment-related issues mean much more than compliance with legal obligations. This is why, since 10 years, REN has been developing a systematised approach and improving its environmental management practices in articulation with integration with other relevant aspects for its processes and stakeholders, with particular regard to quality, safety and health.

Through the Corporate Social Responsability and Quality, Environment and Safety Policy, REN demonstrates its commitment to guaranteeing compatibility between business development and respect for the environment. This entails raising awareness among all stakeholders.

REN's contribution to the development of society is recognised by stakeholders, particularly due to the direct benefit resulting from the services it provides in the energy sector and the responsibility it assumes in the field of entrepreneurial citizenship.

Environmental impact minimisation has been a developing area in REN, both in terms of the implementation of new investment projects and in its operation and maintenance of the various electricity and natural gas transmission and transport and storage infrastructures.

UN Global Compact


UNcompact

IN 2005, REN subscribed to the ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact, being the founder of the Portuguese UN Global Compact Network, undertaking to accept and “incorporate the principles of the Global Compact in its strategy and daily activities, and to promote this initiative and its principles among its employees, partners, customers and the general public”.

Since signing up, REN has seven times submitted an annual progress report. The most recent one can be consulted via the following link.
