About 24% of global CO2 emissions come from the transport sectors. In Europe and the United States, emissions from transport are the most marked of any sector, accounting for almost 30%. Promoting sustainable transport means reducing greenhouse gases, which are the main cause of climate change, and taking on one of the world's biggest challenges: protecting the environment. In 2015 the United Nations approved its 2030 Agenda, an action programme setting out 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for everyone in government, business and society to follow, to achieve sustainable growth from an economic, social and environmental point of view. Eni's mission now is the same as it was in 2016, but with the addition of the Sustainable Development Goals. Through this combination, we will meet global challenges by actively supporting a socially fair energy transition, to preserve our planet and provide efficient, sustainable energy resources for all.
Eni's business model also provides for a decarbonization pathway aimed at carbon neutrality, reducing emissions generated throughout the life cycle of energy products and with a set of actions that will lead to the full decarbonization of processes and products by 2050. This pathway, based on existing technologies, will allow Eni to completely reduce its carbon footprint, in terms of both net emissions and net carbon intensity, and give a significant boost to strategic sectors such as sustainable mobility.
