2021 ESG indices and ratings

Eni has been ranked highly for its Environmental, Social and Governance activities (ESG) by the main ESG evaluations.

Leader in ESG ratings

Eni system aims at establishing and implementing the most rigorous standards and best practices to achieve the highest  ratings’ results in the industry.

Eni’s 2021 ratings place or confirm the company in a leading position both in the main ESG ratings and specialised indices: MSCI (confirmed as “A”), Sustainalytics (confirmed as “medium risk”), V.E (confirmed in “advanced band”), FTSE4Good Developed Index (confirmed for the fifteenth consecutive year). This year, Eni’s ISS ESG rating has been upgraded to Prime Status.

Eni also achieved excellent results in the climate-focused ratings: Climate Action 100+ Net Zero Benchmark (1st among its peers by number of fully aligned indicators), Carbon Tracker (1st among its peers in research "Absolute Impact"), Transition Pathway Initiative (Quality Management: 4 stars – all criteria met; Carbon Performance: aligned with Paris Pledge).

These accomplishments are proof of Eni’s commitment to achieving the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which are embedded into the company’s mission.

In September 2021, Eni’s “A” status was confirmed in MSCI's ESG rating.

MSCI ESG Research provides ESG ratings to global public companies (and some private companies) on a scale AAA to CCC. The ratings are based on exposure to sector-specific ESG risks and on the company's management capabilities.   

In its annual update published during August 2021, Sustainalytics confirmed Eni in the "medium risk" band with an ESG risk rating of 25.9/100 – in line with its 2020 assessment.

The 25.9 rating corresponds to the residual risk following management actions on a rating scale from 1-100 (1 is best, 100 is worst).

The Sustainalytics (Morningstar Group) ESG assessment model covers a wide range of sector- and company-specific ESG risk areas. Sustainalytics is a leading independent company in ESG and corporate governance analysis, ratings and research that supports investors in developing and implementing responsible investment strategies.

In August 2021, V.E confirmed Eni’s overall score of 65/100 and its inclusion in the "advanced" band (the highest on the V.E. rating scale).

V.E (Moody's Group) is a global provider of ESG ratings – including sustainable finance ratings.


Eni was awarded the highest score in its sector (B-), being upgraded to Prime Status/Industry Leaders on an A+ (best) / D- (worst) scale.

The Prime Status threshold overcome was the highest of all the sectors evaluated. ISS ESG offers support services for the development and integration of policies and practices related to responsible investment.

In 2020, Eni once again confirmed its leading role in combating climate change by obtaining an A- rating in the CDP questionnaire. The latest edition ranks more than 9,600 companies on their responses to climate change, forestation and water security issues.

Eni’s “A” score was only matched by a few other companies in the sector and is well above the global average score of D-C, on a scale from A and A- (the maximum) to F (the minimum).

CDP is an international non-profit organisation that encourages companies and governments to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, safeguard water resources and protect forests.
