Enel Américas started the second edition of its School of Circular Economy for Latin America, an initiative that aims to extend the culture of the circular economy within the company. This time, in addition to the internal program, an open course will be held for stakeholders from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Peru and Chile.
The School will present its 120 students with a journey through the foundations of the circular economy, new business models, the role of design, impact metrics, sustainable finance, governance and circular cities. It will be emphasized that the circular economy is the basis of a new sustainable economic model that aspires to redesign the business model throughout the entire chain and through innovation, not just technology.
"For Enel, the circular economy has always been a strategic engine to redesign its business model and the school covers all strategic areas that allow us to delve into the role that the circular economy can have in terms of economic competitiveness and sustainability," he explains Maurizio Bezzeccheri, general manager of Enel Américas and director of Enel for Latin America, and adds: “this year we have also created a course open to the main stakeholders of our company to promote exchange on these issues, share our vision and also collect their experiences ”.
An open course for stakeholders
The objective of the open course on Circular Economy is to share Enel's knowledge with its stakeholders and receive ideas and suggestions from them. The outline of each session is an introduction to the topic, a presentation of the Group's vision, a presentation by a relevant external speaker, and then space for discussion.
In the first session, Marcos Penido, Secretary of Infrastructure and Environment of the Government of the State of São Paulo, will participate with a presentation entitled "Approach of the State of São Paulo on circular cities." Another of the speakers will be Pablo Allard, Dean of the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Development, who will speak about circular development models for cities. The vision of Enel will be in charge of Maurizio Bezzeccheri.
The full program of the open course foresees four sessions that will take place between June and July, in which the following topics will be analyzed: Cities of tomorrow, Governance for the circular economy, Sustainable finance and Decarbonization and circular economy.
