On June 10 2013, the Global Compact Network Italy, active since 2002, was formed in the Global Compact Network Italy Foundation which, adopting the Network's mission, works to spread the knowledge of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) favouring the increase of subscribers throughout the country and, with increasing seriousness and credibility, to promote the commitment to corporate sustainability among the businesses and organizations of Italian members and their partners.
The Global Compact Network Italy Foundation also aims to play an active role in defining and implementing strategies for growth and consolidation of the Global Compact of the United Nations at regional and international levels, providing its contribution to achieving the overall objectives of the initiative on a global scale, meaning the creation of "a more inclusive and sustainable global economy".
18 organizations participated in the establishment of the Foundation: private companies (of different sizes and industries), universities and research institutes, non-profit foundations and civil society organizations.
Eni is one of the founder promoters of the Global Compact Network Italy Foundation, is among its Board of Directors and is home to its head office in Milan at the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM).
Eni is already present in the main network of the UN Global Compact and the LEAD program, dedicated to the leading companies for sustainability, where it sits in its steering committee.
