We are committed to protecting and promoting everyone's health. In line with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, we view good health as a fundamental aim. That is why Eni makes choices with a view to reducing the environmental impact of its activities as much as possible.
The importance of wellbeing
Our protection and prevention plans, at every level, aim to enhance the physical, mental and social wellbeing both of our employees and their families and local people. We place a particular emphasis on the more fragile environments in which we work and run a number of initiatives on health to inform and raise awareness and prevent risks.
We are working constantly to protect the health of local people in the countries where we operate, supporting the medical services provided by local welfare systems and seeking to improve general knowledge and prevention. Eni encourages models of healthy behaviour and risk-prevention among its people.. We also incentivise and encourage regular specific medical checks, which are crucial to any prevention strategy for illnesses such as cancer and cardiovascular problems.
Everyone around the world involved with the same goal
The importance Eni places on its people's health results in an integrated strategy at every level of our activities. A consistent awareness across the company can better protect the health and wellbeing of Eni's people.
A major part of this is our approach to prevention. Primary prevention is encouraging healthy lifestyles, while secondary prevention means providing early diagnosis for illnesses. Finally, tertiary prevention applies when an illness has been treated and rehabilitation is needed to avoid any further damage.
Naturally, our commitment is to everyone living in the areas where Eni operates.
For Italian workers abroad, Eni provides assistance through on-site medical facilities and agreements with major international medical organisations and, where necessary, brings them home. We are aware of the diverse demands in the countries we work in and with the help of the Eni Foundation we carry out local projects to strengthen systems of primary assistance and vaccination campaigns.
Eni's health initiatives
In 2018, we had a programme of health management to promote and maintain the health and wellbeing of Eni people and provide proper risk management in working environments.
