Eni’s Impact Assessments focused on the entire spectrum of Human Rights
The UN Guiding principles require companies to identify, prevent, mitigate and account for how they address their impacts on Human Rights. There is a general consensus within the Business and Human Rights community on the minimum Human Rights-based requirements to be met both in the process and in the content of Impact Assessments focusing on Human Rights. As these criteria highlight, there will always be a need to tailor and adjust the scope and approach to reflect the operating context and realities in order to assess all Human Rights impacts. This has also been Eni’s experience and approach, which is why Eni has been developing and implementing different processes over time and considers this effort ongoing.
The assessments described in this section have two main characteristics:
- they are cross-functional, meaning that since they take the full spectrum of Human Rights into consideration, they require participation and commitment from all Eni’s departments;
- they address potential and actual impacts from Business Partners’ activities, other than direct impacts caused by Eni.
Some of the assessments described in the attached documents are specific stand-alone Human Rights assessments of a specific context, including the Human Rights Impact Assessments, the Human Rights Compliance Assessments and the company-wide assessment conducted in 2017, as well as the Workshop which led to the identification of Eni’s salient Human Rights issues.
Other assessments are company processes aimed at achieving a wider set of company goals, in which Human Rights related content is integrated. This is the case of the ISO26000-based assessments, the Integrated Risk Management process and the Environmental, Social and Health Impact Assessment.
