Energy companies such as Eni work closely with governments around the world that are often our partners in big financial transactions, which also contribute to support administration, healthcare, education and other social activities. Managing payments properly contributes to realise “Peace, justice and strong institutions” – Sustainable Development Goal 16 on the UN 2030 Agenda. For these reasons, since 2015, we deemed important to voluntarily disclose these payments. Since 2017, we have committeed a “Report on Payments to Governments” in line with European Directive 2013/34.
The criteria used to draw up the document are based on mainstream interpretations of national and international legislation. Our report covers payments for exploration, research, development and extraction of petroleum (including condensates) and natural gas. Payments for refining, liquefied natural gas (LNG), gas-to-liquids and other Downstream activities are excluded.
