We are committed to reporting our corporate culture in a timely manner.
Within Eni for 2017 and, in general, in all our reports, we narrate the strategies and actions we take to achieve Company objectives.
Since 2006, Eni has been publishing an annual Corporate Sustainability Report with the aim of illustrating our commitment to this important issue. In particular, the report "Eni for 2018" is composed of the document of the same name, as well as a special document on our process of decarbonization (based on the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) of the Financial Stability Board) and an annex to the Sustainability Performance achieved during the year. In addition, from 2017, Eni drew up the Consolidated Non-Financial Statement (DNF), pursuant to Italian Legislative Decree 254/2016, published in the Annual Financial Report1.
By communicating transparently, we gain the trust of our stakeholders. A clear dialogue with them allows us to establish, day after day, a constructive exchange based on integrity.
The definition of material sustainability topics for Eni is based on a process of identifying all the relevant issues and a subsequent prioritization process that takes into consideration scenario analysis, risk assessment results and stakeholder perspective.
Every year we define relevant sustainability issues, identifying them among those considered most relevant for the business: the social, environmental and governance spheres.
We adopt the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the body created with the aim of providing support to reporting on the sustainability performance of organisations. This gives us the opportunity to consolidate the materiality determination process. Since 2017, we have adopted the new GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards (GRI Standards) for our sustainability reporting.
Our sustainability is guaranteed by the auditing firm Reconta Ernst & Young SpA, which confirmed the sustainability data published in the report Eni for 2018.
1 The Management Report included in the 2018 Integrated Annual Report is the Eni integrated report prepared on the basis of the principles contained in the International Framework published by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC). This report aims to illustrate financial performance and sustainability, highlighting the connections between the competitive environment, the Group's strategy, the business model, integrated risk management and the adoption of a rigorous system of corporate governance.
