Francesco Starace’s commitment to Mexico has been recognised. The Enel CEO has received the Order of the Aztec Eagle, the highest honour for foreigners who have distinguished themselves by bringing value to the country in their line of work. Starace received the award during a ceremony held at the Mexican Embassy in Rome on 24 April.
This is an honour that I would like to share with both my nearest and dearest and my colleagues who embarked on this path of growth with me in Mexico

“This is an honour that I would like to share with both my nearest and dearest and my colleagues,” said Starace, noting that the path of growth that was undertaken 10 years ago in Mexico is the result of effective teamwork. It is no coincidence that when awarding the honour, Mexico’s ambassador in Italy Juan José Guerra Abud, called the Enel CEO “a leader in the responsible energy sector who is fully aware of the issues at stake and who is working hard to fight greenhouse gas emissions.” Mexico is also working to keep to the commitments it made in Paris at COP21, and Enel, as the country’s ambassador stated, is one of the companies providing a great deal of support to the nation in this respect.
Through the Enel Green Power business line, the Group headed by Starace is the leading renewable energy operator in Mexico, with 728MW of installed capacity and projects under construction providing a further 1,282MW. “In the years to come, we will continue to work on diversifying Mexico’s energy mix,” said Starace, promising that Enel will keep to its ongoing commitment to promote sustainable development in the country and the growth of its communities.
