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.
SDG#3 – Health and well-being (Italian only)
Eni considers the protection of the health of its people, families and communities in the Countries where it operates to be a fundamental requiremen

Our promotion and prevention plans, at every level, aim to promote the physical, mental 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 strategy especially for certain illnesses, such as cancer and cardiovascular problems.
The importance Eni places on its people's health results in an integrated strategy at every level of the company. Only solid awareness, evident everywhere in the company, can protect the health and well-being of our people. This approach takes form in 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 comes following the treatment of an illness, when rehabilitation is needed to avoid any further 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 agreementswith 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.
In 2021 we supported 379,481 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 addition to ensuring the prevention, promotion and protection of the health of workers and communities, specific initiatives were developed in 2021 to address the three priority challenges:
the Covid-19 health emergency and its short and long-term effects on people's well-being
the impacts on health
energy transition and the role of companies for the resilience of the social health system.
Below are the main areas in which we have intervened.
Access to healthcare
Strengthening access to assistance for all Eni people, community-based interventions and emergency shelters to support situations of fragility caused or exacerbated by the pandemic.
Identification and implementation of initiatives promoting health for the prevention of illnesses involving information, communication, awareness, prophylaxis through vaccination, screening of at-risk groups and prevention of complications of diagnosed diseases.
Culture of health
Spreading a health focussed culture by putting initiatives in place for workers, their families and communities identified downstream of the health risk and impact assessment.
Work-related risks There is an ongoing process to identify, monitor and control workplace risks, including those which are not specifically regulated, such as travellers’ medicine, in connection with the industrial and health surveillance process.
Implementation of identified workplace health activities, also in view of the inherent risks of new projects, industrial processes and the results of industrial hygiene activities.
Response to medical emergencies
Guarantee of access to services for health emergencies. The application of the criteria for responding to health emergencies, including epidemic and pandemic response plans, consistently with corporate policies was verified.
Feasibility studies, functional design and launch of the development of management applications within the project for the digitalization of processes and of healthcare services. Potential adoption of the continuous monitoring system across the entire operational perimeter and completion of digitalization of health-related operational processes including through information and mobile communication technology. Trials continue to monitor the quality of indoor environments with technology improvements in sensors (e.g. generic hydrocarbons, CO2, fine dust)
Promoting the health of partner country populations as a prerequisite for socio-economic development, through the implementation of specific programmes.
In a global health context under stress from the pandemic, we have carried out a series of interventions in the medical and social fields, thanks also to the experiences in health projects gained around the world.
With a total of €23 million in investments in Italy and abroad, mainly focused on activities in some African countries, we have promoted the following actions to combat the virus:
epidemiological updates and new guidelines from international bodies
hygiene measures for the prevention and containment of epidemics/pandemics
clinical and care flow management best practices, vaccination and travel medicine recommendations and support in defining technical specifications for services related to the emergency response
support in the definition of technical specifications for emergency response services
The activity of supporting and promoting the psychological well-being of employees continued with further information on various health issues, especially on the coronavirus, on the new habits to be adopted, on the necessary precautionary measures. In 2021, the Medical Emergency Response Plan (MERP) of all Eni subsidiaries with operational and management specificities was updated several times, in compliance with the regulations of the countries, the "Pandemic Preparedness Response Plans" were activated with specific response actions.
Eni has also worked in synergy with governments, institutions and local and international NGOs with the aim of preventing and countering the spread of the pandemic and minimizing its impact on local communities, both in Italy and abroad, and improving the resilience of the most vulnerable communities. In addition, it made the supercomputing infrastructures available for coronavirus research and molecular modelling skills , offering the contribution of tools and resources of excellence in the fight against the global emergency.
According to the WHO, two major crises threaten health systems and people's health: climate change and the outbreak of pandemics. To give an answer to these two
emergencies, it is necessary to work towards the transformation of the energy sector while bringing benefits to human health, nature and the environment, contributing to the strengthening and resilience of social and health systems. In this regard, Eni has promoted the activation of a scientific supervision body, at the Eni Enrico Mattei Foundation – FEEM, the FEEM Health Committee to carry out research activities on the impacts on the health of workers and communities of technologies for energy transition, and proposes models of collaboration between the private and public sectors for emergency preparedness and response and the provision of welfare services.
