Eni began implementing policies relating to human rights in the supply chain in 2007.
We have adopted guidelines for the protection and promotion of Human Rights that include a section dedicated to relations with suppliers. The tools Eni uses to ensure respect for human rights by suppliers are:
We assess our suppliers using standard international criteria and ensure that they also respect human rights.
Eni considers the respect and protection of human rights at every stage of the relationship with its suppliers, who subject to a structured assessment designed to verify and monitor compliance with the principal ILO standards, and, in particular:
Eni’s Vendor List contains more than 7,200 qualified vendors. To begin the Qualification Procedure for inclusion on the Eni Vendor List, a supplier is required to declare support for the international principles and standards on human rights, including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the principles of the Global Compact and Eni’s Code Ethics, as well as the specific requirements required for SA8000 certification.
In addition to these activities, which are an integral part of the procurement process, for years we have operated a rating system for suppliers engaged in the most risky activities or active in the critical countries, to verify that their effective compliance with the principal ILO standards.
The criteria for the selection of suppliers to be submitted to the rating system include: geographic location; the different types of goods, services, work; the type of ownership/equity composition (local - international - mixed); type of company (subsidiary, local company, etc.); size (turnover/ number of employees); any critical reports; categories of critical supplies.
In particular, in 2016, in addition to the ordinary checks carried out during the qualifying phases, the following were also completed:
In support of these activities, in 2016, two resources were trained as SA8000 Auditors at the following subsidiaries: Ghana and Turkmenistan. The total number of resources has now reached 36, including two Lead Auditors.
From 2008 to date, 149 SA8000 audits were completed in 14 countries (China, Congo, Angola, Nigeria, Pakistan, East Timor, Ecuador, Mozambique, Indonesia, Algeria, Ghana, Vietnam, Kazakhstan and Italy).
