Eni is committed to respecting internationally recognised Human Rights
CLAUDIO DESCALZI, CEO
Eni’s approach to Human Rights builds on the dignity of every human being and on companies’ responsibility to contribute to the well-being of the communities surrounding their business activities.
This vision goes beyond obtaining a social licence to operate: it is an integral part of Eni’s identity and its way of doing business. Indeed, we believe that business must respect internationally recognized Human Rights, as established in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
The paramount importance of upholding the Business and Human rights framework is also confirmed by the current landscape at global level. Indeed, an estimated four billion people around the world currently live in conditions where they cannot adequately rely on protection from law or have access to institutions of justice.
Human Rights are embedded in our policies and governance processes. We value continuous engagement and training on Human Rights for our people and our business partners. We work with other organizations to improve our performance and promote the implementation of the Business and Human Rights agenda.
We apply the Due Diligence requirement to our salient Human Rights issues. We assess and monitor our risks. We identify customized strategies and solutions in an ongoing effort to be more effective in preventing and mitigating our impact.
We have defined a “Grievance Mechanism” for handling communities and individuals’ grievances; we have a Whistleblowing process in place that enables anyone to send information concerning violations of the Code of Ethics, including Human Rights issues.
The scope and content of this section have been developed to align with the UNGP Reporting Framework. Furthermore, since 2014 we have been adopting new guidelines for our sustainability reporting - the "G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines and Oil & Gas Sector Disclosures".
We work closely with OCSE, B20, ISPAC and Transparency International and we belong to Global Compact and Partnering Against Corruption Initiative to guarantee a shared culture of integrity.
In the Upstream area, our commitment for transparency is tangible through the publication of taxes, royalties and other payments foreseen by the EITI Standard. The involvement of governments is indispensable for a good use of the extractive resources.
