The energy sector is undergoing a period of transition, the fundamental role of pursuing sustainable development puts it before crucial decisions, brought about by the decisive challenge of our time: to respond to the climate emergency, while respecting the need to ensure access to energy for a growing population, with the aim of fostering development and reducing social and economic imbalances. One of the pillars of Eni's business model is to pursue this fair transition through the exploitation of energy resources, making them available to both international and domestic markets, while fostering the development of local markets in the knowledge that growing together strengthens the company's credibility.
It's an approach that we have adopted since Eni was formed, working in difficult environments, where water, energy, work and medical services are often only for the privileged few. The experience we have gained enables us to think about and implement targeted projects to support the needs of local communities. In fact, our goal is to combat energy poverty, by supporting our host communities, devising and implementing projects that are consistent with national development plans. We act in keeping with the "Mattei Formula", the ideas and actions of Enrico Mattei. The goal of this was to help local people and communities evolve, favouring independence for producing countries in terms of energy and development.
