Published on Monday, 30 January 2023

Enel organized a series of webinars to explain the circular model's contribution to the energy transition while conserving the environment and biodiversity.

A series of Webinars committed to exploring Circular Economy, with the participation of experts and private sector representatives, Enel organized interviews dedicated to the Circular Economy's theme as a strategic lever to advance the energy transition.

The webinar focused on "A sustainable future: biodiversity and its relationship with the circular economy." Biodiversity has countless expressions of life in the environment: the variety of animals, plants, fungi, and even microorganisms such as bacteria that make up our natural world. Preservation is essential to maintain balance and support life.

This is where Circular Economy comes into play. Its fundamental pillars can generate positive impacts in different areas, including the environment and its direct repercussions on biodiversity. Products made with a circular design that contemplates a lower use of raw materials and soil, thus resulting in a drastic reduction of emissions levels. Together, we will address these issues and learn how to protect biodiversity, thanks to a Circular Economy model that guarantees area recovery through waste elimination and materials recovery.

Influential experts participating include Tim Forslund, Circular Economy Specialist from SITRA, a Finnish innovation agency and world reference on the subject, Gian Paolo Daguer Guarin, Sustainability Manager of Enel Colombia.

Gian Paolo Daguer spoke about the Circular Economy's relationship with biodiversity and an initiative developed in Colombia and Central America called Enel Biodiversa.

"The objective is to protect, conserve and restore the ecosystems in the areas where we develop our business. We have been developing biodiversity projects for more than 15 years. In particular, Enel Biodiversa has four main pillars i) integration of biodiversity conservation with the shared value creation model, for example, through our territories where we support productive projects such as the cocoa chain or ecotourism projects; ii) protection, conservation, and restoration of ecosystems) iii) introduction of technologies that can reduce the impact of our business on biodiversity iv) sharing knowledge and raising awareness about these activities."
