According to FAO data , the years 1990 to 2005 saw a deforestation rate of 13 million hectares a year. Forests are degraded and the area they cover is reduced for unsustainable farming, illegal logging, unsustainable biomass for energy and building towns. All of these increase mankind's CO2 emissions and seriously reduce the Natural Carbon Sink, while emissions from industry continue to rise.
That is why Eni has made its forest conservation projects one of the pillars of its decarbonization strategy. We are therefore focused on protecting, conserving and sustainably managing forests, mainly in developing countries, which scientists consider the most internationally important for mitigating climate change.
