People are important to us: we develop processes and tools to ensure the application of the highest international human rights standards.
As foreseen by the company’s Sustainability Policy, and in the Guidelines on the Protection and Promotion of Human Rights, Eni is also committed to respecting the peculiar rights of indigenous peoples.
Indigenous peoples have specific rights because of their peculiar connection with the land. In the contexts where indigenous peoples are present, specific policies have been adopted that sanction Eni’s commitment to respecting the rights of such peoples and take due consideration of their expectations in business decisions. To date, the Indigenous Peoples Policy has been adopted by Eni for its operations in Australia and Norway.
We want to ensure the respect of human rights as expressed by the UN’s Guiding Principles with targeted interventions in geographic areas.
The chief executive, Claudio Descalzi, reaffirmed Eni’s commitment on the issue, when he opened a training workshop for the company’s top management entitled “Raising awareness on Business and Human Rights in Eni Activities”, which was held in October 2016.
The event, which was aimed at raising awareness about the issue of business and human rights issues, involved a panel of international experts, such as the Danish Institute for Human Rights, Amnesty International, the Institute for Human Rights and Business, the University Of Notre Dame (Indiana, US) and IPIECA. The event was attended by Eni’s Board of Directors and Board of Statutory Auditors, as well as management representatives (200 people in person and 200 in streaming from abroad).
In the process of internally aligning the commitment to respect for human rights, training plays a fundamental role. The October 2016 workshop marked the start of a process of building awareness involving the entire population of Eni, with a specific distance learning plan for human rights aimed at:
22,000 people at Eni, from clerical staff to middle and top managers have already been trained on a distance basis, in the period between November 2016 and March 2017. Additional human rights training modules, for professional areas and those functions at Eni that are particularly relevant to the management of human rights, have been planned from 2017.
