We at Eni believe that representing legitimate interests in a fair, transparent and traceable way is the essence of participatory democracy itself.
We are convinced that engaging with Institutions is the best way for acting to create stable, valuable conditions for all our stakeholders
This is why we believe that representing our interests to the Institutions is appropriate and necessary, not only to advance our company’s interests, but also to enable decision-makers to develop comprehensive impact assessment of the choices they make.
On this basis, Eni is committed to a fair and transparent dialogue with Institutions and numerous other organized bodies of the civil society in every country where we operate.
We are convinced that engaging with Institutions is the best way for acting to create stable, valuable conditions for all our stakeholders. We have stated in our Mission that “We believe in the value of long term partnerships with the countries and communities where we operate”. This is because solid and constructive relationships with our host countries, with their Institutions and with the communities that inhabit them are, for us, the most precious resource, one which we intend to preserve and grow over time.
This is the foundation of our interests representation activity, which then takes place in different ways, for instance taking part in public debate and consultations on policies being drafted. In Italy, for example, we have participated in the public consultation on the setting of the new National Energy Strategy, which has taken place between June and September 2017, upon indication of the Ministry of Economic Development and the Ministry of the Environment and Protection of Land and Sea. On this occasion, Eni has provided its opinions and proposals to the institutional bodies engaged in defining the long-term energy strategy for the Country.
Eni’s Code of Ethics and our Government Affairs Management System Guideline clearly indicate the modus operandi and the responsibilities of all those which represent Eni’s interests outside of our company. To guarantee that Eni’s people dedicated to the relations with Institutions can always be identified, all these activities are carried out by specific functions in compliance with precise plans and rules. All Eni’s people - as well as external collaborators whose actions may be attributed to Eni - are required to act in a fair, transparent and traceable way in their work towards Institutions.
In Eni the International Affairs Department and the Domestic Affairs Office are in charge of relations with Institutional stakeholders. These units work in cooperation with other Eni functions and subsidiaries whenever they require support for more effective and correct interactions with the Institutions, ensuring a full compliance with our internal rules as well as unity and consistence of our relational strategies.
These people are either provided with the necessary powers to represent Eni in the activities they must carry out, or expressly authorized to do so in accordance with their responsibilities. Our rules require that each meeting with institutional representatives be tracked, and that the Institutional Relations units ensure the filing and conservation of documents pertaining to their activity. Such an obligation also exists for Eni’s other units and subsidiaries.
In addition to this, Eni has clear anticorruption rules, which are addressed to all Eni’s people, not only those involved in lobbying activities. Such rules forbid the payment of any direct or indirect contribution, in whatever forms, to political parties, movements, committees, political organizations, trade unions and to their representatives and candidates.
Moreover, we comply with a series of other national and international regulations: in the European Union, we are enlisted in the Transparency Register of the European Parliament and Commission, and abide to the Code of Conduct regulating public affairs activity in the European Institutions. In the United States of America, we are registered as required by the Lobbying Disclosure Act. In Italy, whilst awaiting the issue of a national overall regulation, we were among the first to sign up to the register of the Ministry of Economic Development and to the one of the Chamber of Deputies.
