On July 31, 2014, the Enel Group adopted a new organizational structure, based on a matrix of divisions and geographical areas, focused on the Group’s industrial objectives, with clear specification of roles and responsibilities in order to:
- pursue and maintain technological leadership in the sectors where the Group operates, ensuring operational excellence;
- maximize the level of service offered to customers in local markets.
Thanks to this new structure, the Group can benefit from reduced complexity in the execution of management actions and the analysis of key factors in value creation. In particular, the new organizational structure of the Enel Group is built around a matrix which considers:
- Divisions (Global Generation, Global Infrastructure and Networks, Renewable Energies, Global Trading, Upstream Gas), which are responsible for managing and developing assets, optimizing their performance and the return on capital employed in the various geographical areas where the Group operates. The Divisions are also tasked with improving the efficiency of the processes they manage and sharing best practices at the global level. The Group can benefit from a centralized industrial vision of projects in the various business areas. Each project will be assessed not only on the basis of its financial return, but also on the basis of the best technologies available at the Group level;
- Regions and Countries (Italy, Iberia, Latin America, Eastern Europe), which are responsible for managing relationships with institutional bodies and regulatory authorities, as well as selling electricity and gas, in each of the countries where the Group is present, while also providing staff and other service support to the Divisions.
This matrix includes in terms of business support:
- Global Service Functions (Procurement and ICT), which are responsible for managing information and communication technology and procurement at Group level;
- Holding Company Functions (Administration, Finance and Control, Human Resources and Organization, Communication, Legal and Corporate Affairs, Audit, European Union Affairs, and Innovation and Sustainability), which are responsible for managing governance processes at the Group level.
