In detail:

  • the countries, around the world, in which Eni has conducted community development projects
  • areas in which Eni is active (health, education, socio-economic empowerment)
  • data on community investments in the last three years

Our approach in the countries in which we operate has always been based on integration and cooperation. The projects we promote are aimed at community development and involve local players and drive the growth of society.

Our projects for community empowerment

The macro sectors of intervention in which Eni invests significantly concern the protection and promotion of health, often closely linked to access to basic health services, clean water and health hygiene and nutrition awareness, access to primary and secondary education and the socio-economic empowerment, with particular attention to the issues of the exploitation of women in society, access to power and resources.

The overall spending in interventions for the territory deriving from agreements and conventions (Community Investment) in 2015 amounts to approximately 74 million euros, an increase over 2014, of which approximately 95% in the upstream activities sector. Investment in the African continent remains high with a total of 27.54 million euros, of which 78% in Sub-Saharan Africa (21.59 million euros).

2015 recorded an increase in eni’s commitment, mainly due to the restarting of activities in Libya in the sector of community health and infrastructures and in Kazakhstan for cultural initiatives linked to Expo 2017 in Astana based on the theme "Future energy". The change recorded in the environmental sector is due to the timing of contractual obligations with local institutions in Italy.
