Our salient Human Rights issues in the management of Security operations
One of Eni’s priorities is respecting the right to life and bodily integrity and the health of both its people and members of local communities. At Eni we are aware that Security events can affect almost the entire spectrum of Human Rights, including economic, social and cultural rights. For instance, security operations can have a meaningful negative or positive impact on the freedom of expression and the opportunities to participate in political processes. Aware of these opportunities and challenges, Eni manages its security operations in accordance with international Human Rights principles, and in compliance with the guidelines set out by the Voluntary Principles on Security & Human Rights.
During the Salient Issues Workshop held in 2017, Eni identified the following salient issues in the Security and Human Rights area:
- Excessive use of force by public and private security forces
- Employee security in high-risk environments.
