Activities in Iraq for a world day dedicated to the planet. 22 April is Earth Day, a global event in which over a billion people from 192 countries take part. It is the biggest day of civic action in the world.
For Eni, celebrating Earth Day also means reaffirming its commitment to the objectives of the Paris Agreement from the 2015 United Nations Conference on climate change.
Eni Iraq B.V. and Zubair Field Operating Division (ZFOD) join the billion people participating in Earth Day, in line with our strategy for our path to decarbonization, introducing simple concepts of circular economy, such as recycling and resources' reuse, and promoting a culture that aims at raising youth's awareness on the importance of environmental initiatives such as reforestation.
Symbolic and practical activities are scheduled for a whole week and will involve
local communities. Above all, children will participate as representatives of future
generations, together with the staff of the Zubair Project, to raise awareness about
the importance of environmental protection and its socio-economic impact on the population.
Schoolchildren can make a big difference. During the week of activities, they will ignite their passion in nine primary schools close to the plants, doing their part to take care of the earth, together with Eni Iraq B.V. and Zubair Field Operation Division (ZFOD). Various activities are planned involving collaboration by teachers:
On 20 April, students will arrive at Eni’s headquarter and share their work with Eni Iraq B.V. and ZFOD staff, helping them plant seeds and creating murals inspired by the environment in the courtyards of the camp.
