For Eni, safety is of fundamental importance for the respect of human rights in the countries in which it operates
Ensuring the safety of its people, contractors and structures is a priority for Eni. It is equally important for Eni to ensure that the conduct of safety activities takes place in full respect of the human rights of local communities. Consequently, Eni manages its safety operations in accordance with international human rights principles, and in compliance with the guidelines set out by the Voluntary Principles on Security & Human Rights.
Since it was founded, Eni has been particularly concerned with the issue of security, the protection of the physical safety of people, relations with communities, and respect for principles such as the right to life, health and freedom of expression. We invest significant resources in:
The activities carried out by the company focus on the protection of human rights and, in particular, the protection of the physical safety of people, the maintenance of relationships based on fairness with local communities and respect for the right to life, health and freedom of expression.

(*) The decline in the proportion of contracts containing human rights clauses is mainly due to improvements in the method of calculation.
In 2016, the company also adopted specific action, such as the introduction and monitoring of the application of conduct clauses for the respect of human rights in Eni contracts with providers of security services and the completion of an audit of equipment and tools for the management of security activities made available to security forces, both public and private.
In the context of human rights and safety training programmes for security forces operating in countries where Eni is present, in 2016 practical training was also organised in Venezuela and Ecuador, as well as a specific training on human rights for security managers and officers. Since 2009, training sessions have been held in Eni’s offices in Rome and San Donato Milanese (2009), Egypt and Nigeria (2010), Pakistan and Iraq (2011), Republic of Congo and Angola (2012), Indonesia and Algeria (2013), Mozambique (2014), Kenya (2015), and Venezuela and Ecuador (2016).
