Within the framework of the building, ecological and charity development, Enel Argentina organized the Eco ladrillos (Eco brick) programme aimed at helping in the construction of dwellings to be inhabited by people at social risk.
The programme comprises the preparation of workshops and participation in the following activities:
- Workshops: aimed at employees for environmental awareness and cultural change and in order to produce multiple ingredients to build eco-bricks, created from plastic bottles and polymer waste reduction.
- Voluntary Service: with the motto “Building naturally together”, a group of volunteers experimented with the bio-construction of foundations and a wall in the first school workshop-classroom in a rural zone of the concession area of the company. Among the volunteer tasks, ditches and wells were dug, columns were installed, sun-dried bricks were prepared to cover walls and to build the wall. The school workshop-classroom is designed to provide free talks on sustainable construction, recycling and compost. The activity is performed as 100% sustainable construction, where eco-bricks and company scrap materials are used. Nowadays, eco-bricks created by workers are received daily, and they are stored in order to continue with charity constructions.
These initiatives aim to gather and improve the community, and Enel works to gather people and communities to create bonds between the company and users. Some of the green initiatives and Open Power initiatives aim to gather communities, so that collective work results help all the people involved and improve different aspects of their lives.
