Commitment and actions to deal with risks associated with business Partners
Both the Code of Ethics and the Guidelines on respect for Human Rights were published in 2007; since then Eni’s policies and procedures have progressively included commitments and measures aimed at identifying, preventing, mitigating and accounting for how it addresses any potential impact on Human Rights deriving from the decisions and behaviours of Business partners, including suppliers.
In identifying its approach to these risks, Eni primarily considered its leverage on the different categories of Business partners.
The Salient Issues Workshop organized in 2017 as part of the activities of the Eni Human Rights Working Group gave a major contribution to this activity, which highlighted the following salient Human Rights issues associated to Business relationships:
- Modern day slavery
- Migrant workers
- Freedom of association and Collective bargaining
- Working conditions (wages and working hours)
- Safe and healthy working conditions.
Compliance to national laws
Furthermore, following the adoption of national laws introducing obligations in terms of transparency in the supply chain, Eni has also adopted ad hoc statements, for example relating to the U.S. Conflict Minerals requirements and the UK Modern Slavery Act.
