As a global energy company, which relies on people and structures in many countries throughout the world, we embrace a plural vision, focusing on including the diversity of the people working with us, whose cultural contribution helps to define Eni’s identity. Our Mission and our Code of Ethics are based on equal treatment, providing important leverage for internal engagement and for triggering corporate innovation processes. Eni’s commitment to the principle of inclusion is reflected in the creation of a work environment based on the principles of equal opportunity, regardless of differences in gender, religion, race, nationality, sexual orientation, social status, physical ability and age.
Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity is a resource to be safeguarded and valued. The inclusion of all diversities forms the basis of our commitment, both within the company and in our relations with external stakeholders.
Stop gender-based violence
From 25th November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10th December, the Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Eni joins the UNiTE campaign against gender-based violence.
Our focus on sustainability and innovation centred around our people makes it possible for use to take advantage of ideas, skills and passion to create lasting growth.
Gender equality is the fifth United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal, calling for the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women and girls around the world by 2030. In 2021, Eni subscribed to the United Nations’ Women Empowerment Principles (WEP), reinforcing its commitment to promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace, in business practices and in society.
There are currently 8,360 women working at Eni (in Italy and abroad). In 2021, women numbered 24.82% of the total work force, slightly up on the figure for 2020 (24.56%).
At Eni, the issue of gender equality forms the basis for a number of sustainable development projects, which promote equal opportunities as a growth factor for the entire community, and translate into providing effective support to women in their career paths. In terms of training, Eni promotes initiatives to familiarise girls with technical-scientific subjects, working in conjunction with schools to implement STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines. Our corporate acceleration programmes support female entrepreneurship, focusing specifically on innovation, multiculturalism, gender equality and women’s empowerment. We pursue a pay equity policy within the company, currently standing at 98% (figure referring to Italy, whereas the gender pay ratio percentage over total remuneration referring to countries abroad rises to 101%).
We are cognisant of the positive and negative impacts that companies can have on women.
Zero tolerance against discrimination and harassment
As stated in the Code of Ethics, Eni is committed to ensuring a work environment free from any form of discrimination or abuse, by establishing working relationships characterised by fairness, equality, non-discrimination and attention and respect for the dignity of each individual.
