Activities undertaken in recent years have made it possible to reduce Eni’s direct GHG emissions by 28% compared with 2010 and, in the same period, to improve the performance index by 25% (GHGs from operated production) of hydrocarbon production. In 2015, despite a considerable increase in hydrocarbon production, Eni’s greenhouse gas emissions were essentially stable compared with 2014 (-1%), thanks to flaring down operations, energy efficiency and the containment of fugitive methane emissions, which more than offset increases in emissions related to production growth.

a) GHGs include emissions of CO2, CH4 and N2O; the Global Warming Potential used is 25 for CH4 and 298 for N2O.
(b) The figure includes indirect emissions of GHGs from sub-contracted drilling activities by third parties for the E&P sector, from the sale of petroleum products, natural gas and LNG, business travel, sub-contracted transport by road or sea, electricity produced by third-parties and sold to end users and by franchised service stations.
(c) The index refers to traditional refineries: Livorno, Sannazzaro, Taranto, Gela and Venice up to 2013, Livorno, Sannazzaro, Taranto and Gela in 2014, Livorno, Sannazzaro and Taranto since 2015.
The tables does not show the quota for the subsidiary Versalis SpA, as negotiations for the sale of a controlling stake in the company are currently underway.
