Commitment and actions to deal with risks associated with business Partners
Eni’s Statement on respect for Human Rights approved in December 2018 includes multiple commitments to preventing and mitigating potential and actual Human Rights impacts deriving from the decisions and behaviours of Business partners, including suppliers. Consistent with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the Statement sets out different approaches reflecting Eni’s 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 in terms of awareness of the risks associated to Business relationships, since it allowed to identify the following salient Human Rights issues:
- 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.
