Respect for human rights in Mexico

Our commitment to respect human rights is part of our path to a fair energy transition.


In line with its commitment to ensure respect and promotion of human rights, Eni Mexico commissioned the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR) to conduct a Human Rights Assessment (HRA) in relation to the activities of the Area 1 development project. The results of the study, which involved engagement with interested rights holders are summarised in the Human Rights Impact Assessment (HRIA) report. At the end of 2019, to comply with the report's recommendations and with aim of preventing and managing the key impacts and the critical issues identified, Eni Mexico developed a Human Rights Action Plan (HRAP). The HRAP addresses most of the topics identified in the HRIA report and organises them into various components, including local communities, fishing, workplace and security.  Further, since 2020 we publish Eni for Human Rights, the company’s dedicated report that describe our commitment and activities on respect for human rights, also showing the pathway of internal procedures strengthening on this matter. The report builds on the work undertaken by Eni over the past 6 years in the countries in which we operate.

Eni Mexico to the VII Regional Forum on business and human rights

On July 15th 2022 Sandra Maqueda (Eni Mexico) participated as speaker to the VII Regional Forum on Business and Human Rights (BHR) for Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) organized by the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (UN OHCHR). Eni Mexico participated in the “Business communication and reporting for accountability” session sharing the company initiatives to report on human rights’ due diligence process on Area 1 development activities. During the same session, representatives from OXFAM Americas and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) participated, jointly with Eni Mexico, to share the different communication and reporting approaches promoted by civil society and private sector, as well as the main challenges and best practices identified. 

The conclusions of the session were related to encourage an approach of transparency aimed at promoting access and disclosure of business information, also by supporting the creation of adequate indicators to assess whether corporate governance, culture and practices are effectively oriented at human rights respect,  and to support the strengthening of communication, monitoring and reporting among companies, especially at local level.
