Eni subscribes to the Katowice Declaration on Sound Carbon Accounting, promoted by the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA). This urges the introduction of a consistent, reliable and transparent system for counting carbon emissions trading between countries, organisations and communities as part of the Paris Agreement on climate change. The document was signed in December 2018 at COP 24 in Katowice by a wide range of environmental organisations, big emissions trading operators and major international energy companies. It aims to consolidate, reinforce and extend the emissions trading system, avoiding double counting due to an absence of sound, shared accounting.
Eni is one of the five companies that founded the Oil & Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI) in 2015,
whose mission is to be the catalyst of actions and investments to mitigate GHG emissions from the Oil & Gas sector and explore new business and new technologies. OGCI is investing up to 1 billion $ in 10 years in low carbon technologies, through the OGCI Climate Investment (OGCI CI) vehicle. These are additional investments compared to the commitments of the individual companies and a multiplier effect is expected thanks to the development of low carbon technologies. In addition, in 2018 OGCI set a target for reducing methane emissions to enhance the role of natural gas. Eni has also been a forerunner in joining the initiative Global Gas Flaring Reduction for the progressive elimination of flaring gas and the Climate and Clean Air Coalition - O&G Methane Partnership aimed at reducing methane emissions in the O&G sector. Moreover, Eni is the only company among the Peers to be part of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), which in 2017 published voluntary recommendations to encourage disclosure of the financial implications of climate change.
A partnership between 13 O&G companies, representing about one third of the world's hydrocarbon production, aiming to establish the sector's leadership in the fight against climate change and investing in technologies to reduce GHG emissions from the supply chain. On 23 September 2019, in New York, OGCI member companies launched the KickStarter CCUS initiative to promote the large-scale, worldwide commercialization of CCUS (carbon capture, use and storage) technology. Progress has concurrently been made on the methane intensity target announced last year. Major steps were taken towards achieving the target, as overall methane intensity was reduced by 9% in 2018. The collective target for reducing the intensity of methane emissions from Upstream Oil and Gas aggregates from 0.32% (2017) to 0.25% by 2025 continues to apply.
Public-Private Partnership coordinated by UNEP and the US-EPA and focused on reducing methane emissions along the Oil & Gas supply chain through the voluntary commitment to the implementation of projects of monitoring, reducing and reporting of the main sources of methane.
Public-Private Partnership led by the World Bank which aims at reducing the practice of flaring at a global level also through the launch of the zero routines flaring initiative, which commits the adherents to eliminate the volumes of gas sent to process flaring by 2030.
IETA is the main association supporting the implementation of market-based trading schemes for GHG emissions, involving businesses in the pursuit of climate actions in line with the objectives supported by the UNFCCC.
Initiative that gathers 8 Oil & Gas companies with the aim of reducing methane emissions along the Oil & Gas supply chain, through the involvement of the main supply chain stakeholders.
It is the association of companies active on sustainability issues. The WBCSD coordinates the Oil & Gas focus group for the implementation of the TCFD recommendations.
Partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Commonwealth Fusion Systems for the industrial development of technologies for the production of nuclear fusion energy.
Public-Private Partnership with the long-term objective of a carbon pricing at global level.
Enea platform to bring together initiatives, experiences, criticalities and prospects in the field of circular economy and to promote the circular economy in Italy also through specific actions.
