Overview

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.

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.
