Eni attended the United Nations Annual Forum on Human Rights and Business, held in Geneva on 26-28 November 2018.
The Forum is the main international event on business and human rights, with over 2000 participants from institutions, companies, civil society, investors, academia and the media. With over 60 specialist sessions, reflecting the multi-stakeholder nature of the event, the Forum provides an opportunity to take an in-depth look at the main issues surrounding human rights and business, to share best practices and to discuss the requirements of civil society.
In particular, Eni played an active part in the session “Community Engagement for Human Rights Impact Assessments in challenging contexts: a round table discussion”. The aim of Eni’s involvement was to describe the approach followed in carrying out the Human Rights Impact Assessment process in Myanmar on the RSF5 on-shore block between 2016 and 2018, in collaboration with the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR). In particular, Eni described the characteristics of the project and the lessons learned in the process.
