Eni’s international partnerships in the fight against Climate Change

We work with the academic community, institutions, civil society and businesses to reach carbon neutrality by 2050.

A strategic driver of our decarbonisation path

Eni has long collaborated with the academic community, civil society, institutions and businesses to foster the energy transition.

Our network of partnerships for decarbonisation allows us to enhance and generate knowledge, share best practices and support initiatives that simultaneously create value for the company and its stakeholders.

Partnerships and collaborations with industry partners are a key tool for the energy transition path. For this reason, Eni continues to expand its network of collaborations with universities, civil society, institutions and companies, with the aim of joining forces, creating new synergies and increasing opportunities to offer innovative solutions for zero-emission energy.

The Alliance for Industry Decarbonization

Eni and the other founding members attended the first meeting at COP 27: a sound contribution to the decarbonisation of the industries. 

By determining the development of effective and sustainable strategies and policies, national and international institutions play a key role in achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement.

As it is aware of their crucial importance, Eni communicates with policymakers both directly and indirectly through trade associations. In this way, we can actively contribute to developing strategies and standards to speed up the transition to Net Zero, drawing on our expertise as an international energy company.

Within the framework of its partnerships and advocacy activities, Eni clearly and transparently supports and shares its position on principles considered essential in climate protection, in line with its strategy:

  • supporting the goals of the Paris Agreement and in particular Net Zero by 2050
  •  identifying the role of natural gas in the energy transition
  •  supporting the carbon pricing mechanism
  • supporting increased energy efficiency and the development of low and zero carbon technologies
  • promoting the role of Natural Climate Solutions;
  • supporting transparency and climate disclosure

These principles are published in Eni's guidelines on responsible commitment for climate change in trade associations that was published in 2020, where the main issues the company considers essential in climate protection are clearly laid out.

In addition, we periodically assess the alignment between Eni’s position in relation to climate change principles and that of the business associations the company participates in. The second report, published in 2022, assessed the public position of 40 associations selected on the basis of their importance and influence in the international climate and energy debate.

Eni's climate advocacy activities

Within the framework of its partnerships and advocacy activities, Eni clearly and transparently supports and shares its position on principles considered essential in climate protection. Here is a list of Eni’s main climate change-related advocacy initiatives.

For some time now, Eni has been promoting various initiatives to involve the entire value chain in the path to decarbonisation undertaken by the company.

In terms of transparent disclosure, Eni supports the definition of best practices for comprehensive climate disclosure and in its reporting adopts the recommendations of the TCFD, published in 2017.  Eni also promotes the need for alignment among the methodologies for GHG reporting in order to make the Oil & Gas sector’s performances and decarbonisation targets comparable. 

Transparency in climate change-related reporting and the strategy implemented by the company made it possible for Eni to be confirmed as a member of the leadership group of the CDP Climate Change Programme1 in 2022. The A- rating achieved by Eni exceeds the global rating average of B C in a scale ranging from D (minimum) to A (maximum). Eni's CDP Climate Change questionnaires are available in the Documents section. 

In the same year, Carbon Tracker’s2 research on Integrated Energy Companies (IEC) placed Eni first among the peers for the completeness of the GHG emissions methodology, the medium/long-term intermediate targets and the emission boundary extended to the entire company. For the second year in a row, the Net Zero Company Benchmark of the CA100+3 investor coalition reported Eni as one of the companies most aligned with the Benchmark requirements regarding GHG emission reduction targets, governance and climate disclosure. The CA100+ valuation is one of the primary references for the dialogue with investors on aspects related to climate strategy.

1) CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) is an internationally recognised organisation, among the leading institutions in assessing the climate performance and strategy of listed companies.

2) Independent financial think tank that has been conducting analyses for years to assess the impact of the energy transition on carbon intensive companies and financial markets

3) Climate Action 100+ is the largest shareholder engagement initiative on climate change issues with about 700 investors to date
