Working together for a low-carbon future

Our commitment to reducing environmental impact.

Progress towards decarbonization is a fundamental aspect of our strategy for 2018-21. Since 2007, we have reduced our Upstream direct CO2 emissions by roughly 40 per cent, improving on all our performance indicators. Our contribution to a more sustainable future is now based on reducing climate-changing gas emissions, promoting the use of natural gas, developing renewable forms of energy and conducting scientific research to find long-term alternative energy solutions.

Our green businesses

With the launch of its Direzione Energy Solutions (DES) initiative in 2015, Eni adopted a strategy of developing businesses to exploit renewable forms of energy, integrating existing assets with innovative solutions such as concentrated solar power (CSP), the conversion of refineries into bio-refineries, green chemicals, biofuels and sustainable mobility.

    Reducing our carbon footprint

    We are aiming towards energy efficiency. Over the past 10 years we have reduced flaring by around 68 per cent with a view to lowering greenhouse gas emissions, while providing energy access to more than 18m people in sub-Saharan Africa.

    The importance of natural gas

    Natural gas will have an increasingly important role to play in Eni’s long-term strategy. Our natural gas projects in Egypt, Mozambique, Ghana and Indonesia confirm our commitment to the rapid development of the cleanest of all the fossil fuels, alongside research into renewable forms of energy.

  • OGCI

    Joining forces for a green future

    We have been involved in establishing the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI), backed by 10 of the largest global energy companies, with the aim of finding new technological solutions to the challenge posed by climate change.

Project Italy

Our commitment to a low-carbon future also involves the development of renewables. As part of Project Italy, we are installing solar panels on 400 hectares of land reclaimed by Syndial, with the aim of generating renewable energy and creating new job opportunities.

Energy for the future

We were the very first company to convert our traditional refineries to bio-refineries, transforming raw materials of biological origin into high-quality biofuels. The traditional refineries of Venice and Gela have been re-imagened identifying innovative solutions.

We have been developing our own algorithms since the 1970s and, over the years, computing has become an increasingly important aspect of our corporate development. It enables us to access new energy sources, be more efficient in our use of energy and achieve our sustainable development objectives.

Eni’s R&D Energy Transition programme also reflects our vision for the future. At this stage of the energy transition, we are moving from a system based on fossil fuels to one based on renewables such as natural gas, characterised by its low carbon content. The programme can be broken down into three distinct areas: gas conversion processes; technologies for the capture and conversion of H2S; and innovative ways of capturing and using CO2.

To diversify the energy mix in our transition towards a low-carbon future, we are also working in the field of renewable energy. We are researching a number of solutions based on the conditions and needs of the countries in which we work. The projects can be divided into two types.
