September 2010 - For the fourth year in a row Eni has confirmed its place on the first and most prestigious index for the evaluation of corporate sustainability, which is open only to companies who have displayed a level of excellence in the management of their business in line with sustainable criteria.
With the confirmation of Snam Rete Gas and the inclusion of Saipem in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, all of the Group’s listed companies operating in extraction, production, transport and engineering are now included in the prestigious sustainability index.
Eni is the only company in the world to have this distinction, a demonstration of the integrated nature of its activities and its across the board commitment to sustainable development.
The Dow Jones Sustainability Index, established in 1999 with the aim of tracing the financial performance of the shares of companies that stand out for their business, social and environmental results, this year selected 318 companies. Only 12 in the O&G sector were included in the world index, and 4 in the Europe index.
The index includes leading companies in sustainability, grouped in 19 industrial and service sectors. The annual review, which this year involved over 2,600 companies, is based on an integrated analysis of long-term business, social and environmental performance, and evaluates areas including corporate governance, risk & crisis management, climate change, ecoefficiency, the supply chain, people management and relations with stakeholders and local communities.
Eni obtained the best grades in its sector in many of the areas analysed, including transparency, stakeholder engagement, reporting and overall environmental management.
