Safeguarding a limited and increasingly exploited resource such as water is central to the path of global sustainable development. Respect for the planet is an integral part of our mission, where we are careful to promote a responsible approach to the use of water, a vital resource for Earth and for mankind.
Continuing the transformation started in 2014, we aim to lead the energy transition towards a low-carbon future, promoting access to energy in an efficient and sustainable way for all.
Our commitment to safeguarding water as a resource is an integral part of this objective and includes measures to mitigate the effects of climate change, such as water scarcity and desertification.
We have strengthened our commitment by publishing Eni's Positioning on Water for the first time. This is a further step towards reinforcing the commitments set out in the CEO Water Mandate and is in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, acting in harmony with local needs, with the aim of fostering social development and safeguarding ecosystems. We have been taking an integrated, cross-departmental approach for some time, involving specialist departments and business lines. This enables us to map and monitor water risk to identify the most vulnerable areas and define measures to mitigate water risk.
