Safety & Environment Day 2021

The Eni event to recognise people committed to safety and environmental protection.

Every year since 2013, the Safety & Environment Day has been an opportunity for Eni to renew its commitment to safety and the environment. A time to recognise the sites, projects and people who have excelled in their performance and initiatives, to take stock of their achievements and to share new projects. In this edition, the focus was on digitalisation and the human factor, the solid HSE governance model and the path to widespread internalisation of the HSE culture.

During the event, awards were presented for:

  • companies with the best safety performance
  • innovative projects and the most significant initiatives for environmental protection
  • Champions in HSE, for the first time this year, to recognise those people at Eni who stand out for their ongoing commitment to raising HSE culture awareness and promoting innovative ideas and solutions.



Safety & Environment Day 2021

A safe restart together

After the 2020 edition was cancelled, this year’s Safety & Environment Day, which took place on 11 November, was a powerful way to mark a fresh start and an opportunity to confirm Eni's commitment to safeguarding people and those who work with us. The event, attended by CEO Claudio Descalzi, Chairman Lucia Calvosa and HSEQ Manager Giovanni Milani, was a chance to share the most outstanding achievements, objectives and projects in terms of safety and environmental protection, understood as the ​​efficient use of resources and respect for the ecosystem and all biodiversity.

In particular, the sites with the best safety performance in 2019 and 2020, demonstrating they have implemented systems for successfully rectifying any discrepancies, were: 

  • the Versalis Brindisi plant
  • the Eni Montenegro BV subsidiary of Natural Resources 
  • the Eni Oman BV subsidiary of Natural Resources

In the environmental initiatives category, awards were given for the most cutting-edge projects in terms of methodological or technological innovation, environmental performance improvement and HSE culture strengthening, as well as for their ability to be replicated in other Eni entities. The projects considered most commendable were: 

  • the Environmental culture development programme put in place in Eni Rewind
  • the Methodology for monitoring and controlling odour emissions developed by Versalis
  • the Methodology for comparative assessment of decommissioning scenarios developed by Natural Resources. 

During the awards ceremony, we learnt more about the companies and worthy projects through the first hand experiences of the managers and people who work there, who came to share their experience.


Each of us has an important role to play and we must lead the change to transform Eni into a zero net emissions sustainable energy company that meets the highest safety standards.

Claudio Descalzi, Eni Chief Executive Officer

Each of us can make a difference

The driving force behind the Safety & Environment Day are the Eni people who, working responsibly, selflessly and in respect of the rules, have tangibly promoted these values and made a significant contribution to the achievement of the sustainability targets which are an integral part of our mission. With this in mind, three Eni employees nominated by their managers were given the Champion in HSE award in recognition of their ability to translate HSE principles into tangible actions and behaviour, becoming role models for their colleagues

Awards were presented to: 

  • Natalie Peelen - Production Management System & Training for Versalis Deutschland, Germany
  • Marat Dussinbayev - Oil Process Lead Operator for Natural Resources Agip Karachaganak, Kazakhstan
  • Ahmed Ibrahim - HSE Coordinator for Natural Resources IEOC, Egypt.
