Health protection

Every day, we promote concrete prevention actions to guarantee the well-being of our employees, their families and the communities in the countries in which we operate.

A fundamental human right and a Sustainable Development Goal

We consider universal access to prevention and medical care to be a fundamental human right, linked not only to biological processes, but also to those of an economic, social, political, cultural and environmental nature. That is why we make choices with a view, on one hand, to reducing the environmental impact of our activities as much as possible, and on the other, to ensuring the health of the people who work with us and that of the communities where Eni operates.

We are committed to protecting and promoting the health of all in line with the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda. Specifically, goal 3 Good Health and Well-being monitors the improvement of 3 important indicators, maternal health, infant mortality and the spread of epidemics.

We value well-being

Our promotion and prevention plans, at every level, aim to promote the physical, psychological and social well-being of our people, their families and local people, with a particular focus on the more fragile situations we work in. Every day we promote concrete actions to promote good health, to inform and raise awareness, and to prevent risks. 

In the countries we operate in, we support the medical services provided by local welfare systems and are looking constantly to improve general knowledge and prevention. Specifically, we focus on models of healthy behaviour which prevent risks. We also incentivise and encourage regular specific medical check-ups, which are crucial to any prevention especially for the most severe diseases, such as cancer and cardiovascular problems. 


The same commitment, in Italy and worldwide

The importance Eni places on its people's health results in an integrated strategy at every level of the company. This approach takes form in three phases of prevention: our primary prevention strategy is to encourage the spread of healthy lifestyles, while the secondary is to ensure early diagnosis in the event of illness. Finally, the third form of prevention includes the treatment of an illness, which is then followed by rehabilitation to avoid more serious problems.

We have made a solid commitment that applies to all Eni people living in Italy and all the countries where we are present. Eni provides assistance to its Italian workers posted abroad, through local medical facilities and agreements with major international medical organisations, which provide rapid intervention when necessary.

We are aware of the vulnerable conditions in the countries we work in, and with the help of the Eni Foundation, we carry out projects to strengthen primary assistance systems and vaccination campaigns.

Eni considers health as a fundamental human right and it is committed to protecting the well-being of its people and host communities, ensuring a health management based on the principles of precaution, prevention and promotion.

Performance tool

Here are the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) related to the five-year period 2018-2022.

Main initiatives in the area of healthcare

In 2022 we supported 384,291 healthcare services ranging from workplace medicine to healthcare assistance. We planned and implemented a widespread flu vaccination campaign, without neglecting the initiatives for the early diagnosis of chronic diseases for employees in Italy. 

In Italy we also launched "Più Salute", a pilot project aimed at home and digital assistance: thanks to this programme, employees and family members can enjoy free services through a remote consultation with a doctor available 24/7.

Health for Eni also means fighting harassment, which is why we have set up a helpline for victims of harassment and gender-based violence. A Psychological First Aid service is also available in case of catastrophic or unforeseen events. 

The energy transition involves health

The energy transition can be fair only if it takes people's health into account. This is why in 2022 we continued working with universities and the research community to assess the potential impacts and opportunities associated with Eni's energy transition and new production technologies. This is why we joined Healthy People, Healthy Business, a working group of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). We focused on understanding how companies can concretely act in favour of global health through four key points:

  • Employee health and well-being
  • Strengthening the resilience of health systems 
  • Healthy consumer behaviour
  • Relationship between health and natural systems

People and values

We have always believed that people are our most important asset. Diversity, individual ability and continuous training are central to our values.

How we protect local communities

We run specific programmes to strengthen local health systems and infrastructure and develop medical and personnel skills. Through these strategies we are committed to supporting local communities in several areas of action with our Partnerships for development. Our efforts have focused on primary health care, maternal and child health protection with actions aimed at reducing also maternal and newborn mortality and preventing malaria and sexually transmitted diseases. We also carried out projects to strengthen care for cancer patients (both adults and children), to prevent non-communicable diseases, combat malnutrition and ensure widespread access to water.

Why health matters in a company

A company's competitiveness is measured not only by the results it achieves in terms of business, but also by the focus it places on those who work within it. Ensuring a healthy environment where people can develop their talents and uniqueness is an integral part of Eni's organisational and management approach. This is why we often speak of Transitional care companies.
