"We are an energy company.
We are working to build a future where everyone can access energy resources efficiently and sustainably.
Our work is based on passion and innovation, on our unique strengths and skills, on the quality of our people and in recognising that diversity across all aspects of our operations and organisation is something to be cherished.
We believe in the value of long term partnerships with the countries and communities where we operate."
On Friday 30 September, in Paris, Eni chief executive Claudio Descalzi made a presentation to the financial community entitled Environmental Social and Corporate Governance. It was an opportunity to present the company’s new mission, which represents the cardinal principles of the Eni model. Herein brief, are the main elements.“We are an energy company. ”
The opening phrase is the expression of Eni's new strategy in a nutshell. A strategy that focuses strongly on growth in our core business but also has ambitious objectives, in relation to reducing emissions, maximising the use of gas, especially in view of generating electricity to facilitate access to energy, and developing renewable sources. Energy company is also a wide-ranging definition when it comes to time, capable of describing Eni's vocation beyond the transformation of its activities and the changeability of the scenarios in which it operates.
“We are working to build a future where everyone can access energy resources efficiently and sustainably. ”
The reference to the future and to access to energy are representative of a substantial new concept that is central to Eni's new mission. A type of access that is efficient and sustainable for everyone, not just for the countries that harbour a true difficulty in this sense.
“Our work is based on passion and innovation, on our unique strengths and skills, on the quality of our people and in recognising that diversity across all aspects of our operations and organisation is something to be cherished. ”
Passion, innovation, skills and the acknowledgement of all diversities are values that truly exist throughout Eni, and distinguish those who work here. The human element acquires a crucial role in the new mission. People, as in employees, contractors and anyone who works in the company and for the company, both as humanity in the broadest sense, and as a point of departure and ultimate objective of every action performed by Eni. The introduction of the word diversity, with all its potential meanings, effectively expresses Eni’s commitment, also in activities not linked to the core business, but performed for the benefit of the communities in the countries in which it operates and of the people who are part of its structure. Indeed, diversity is anything but a limit. Instead, it is considered a resource, an additional field in which Eni can create value.
“We believe in the value of long term partnerships with the countries and communities where we operate. ”
The reference to the communities is clear in this phrase, which expresses what has always been one of our company’s strengths since the beginning: its solid, long-lasting relationships with the countries. Partnerships, in the historical sense of the word according to Eni, focuses not only on promoting the resources of the producer countries in economic terms, but also on providing practical support for sustainable development, in particular when it comes to energy. This is what we call our dual flag model, an Eni's distinguishing mark in all the countries in which we are present.
