he Code of Ethics – and more broadly – Eni’s normative system, explicitly declares that the company "is committed to respecting internationally recognized human rights in the context of its activities and to promote respect for the environment in activities contracted to or conducted by partners and stakeholders." Since 2007, Eni has had a set of guidelines to regulate aspects relating to the protection and promotion of human rights in all of the company’s activities. Eni has adopted a range of instruments for the assessment of effective and potential impacts. In 2010, Eni has approved a standard integrated assessment that includes all the elements for the assessment of social impacts of its activities on the communities, in accordance with international standards. The company is now pursuing the goal to add the human rights perspective in the impact assessments. This work draws significant advantages from the participation in the IPIECA task force, which develops shared guidelines from the oil industry in this area. The cooperation with leading Oil & Gas companies has brought to the publication, in December 2013, of the IPIECA guideline "Integrating human rights into environmental, social and health impact assessments". Eni is also engaged in the international debate  about human rights and the company’s system of due diligence in this area is consistent with the “Protect, Respect and Remedy‘ framework drawn up and published in 2010 by the UN Special Representative of the Secretary General on Human Rights and Transnational Corporations and Other Business Enterprises, John Ruggie. Particular attention is given to the respect of the peculiar rights of indigenous peoples, with special reference to their cultures, lifestyles, institutions, links to lands of origin and development models. In situations where there are indigenous peoples the adoption of specific policies that embrace Eni’s commitment to respecting the rights of such people and to take full account of their expectations is deemed necessary in its business decisions. To date an Indigenous Peoples Policy has been adopted for Eni operations in Australia  and Norway
