We believe in engaging proactively with our many stakeholders and are committed to building relationships based on dialogue, fairness and transparency. This allows us to improve decision-making processes for the development and upgrading objectives of the sites where we operate. We believe in the effectiveness of a participatory approach that involves our stakeholders at the early stages in a project, and in sharing technology and expertise. Remediation and redevelopment of disused areas and the recovery of resources are opportunities both from an environmental perspective and for the redevelopment of territories. Our ability to build a system and create value over time stems from this synergistic and constructive attitude.
The principles that inspire us
Our mission and operating model are inspired by the principles of sustainability and circularity which guide us in every aspect of our work. This is in the context of a regulatory system that meets the highest standards and international guidelines. We have adopted a methodological approach to stakeholder relations, based on local engagement and relationships, with the aim of carrying out remediation projects, recovery of resources and productive redevelopment with certain timescales, methods and costs.
The principles that guide us
For everyone's right to be informed
To be aware of issues that the company and stakeholders consider relevant
To ensure an adequate response through attentive listening
Expertise and integrity
Integrating sustainability goals to create value for communities and the company
Listening and interaction
To understand and manage stakeholder concerns
An inclusive and versatile communication strategy
Constant dialogue with stakeholders in all project phases allows us to identify possible critical issues, taking into account the different needs of the parties. This commitment has led us to consolidate a successful practice of technical consultations, through dedicated meetings, to gain in-depth knowledge of environmental and revaluation measures prior to meetings foreseen by project approval processes. This method has contributed to an increase in the number of approved projects and the granting of local authorisations, without which it is not possible to start operations.
We will endeavour to make the best possible contribution to the challenges of the energy transition and sustainable development. This will include strengthening our environmental services offered on the market. This commitment is geared towards creating long-term value for the territories in which we operate, through dialogue.
Our contribution to transforming environmental challenges into opportunities
The 2020 Sustainability Report describes our objectives for proactively contributing to a fairer, more sustainable and circular economy and to the energy transition, in line with Eni's strategy. The crisis caused by the Covid-19 health emergency has further raised awareness of the role we can play in protecting the environment and use natural resources in a more forward-looking way. We enact this commitment using our model of operational excellence, which aims to create long-term value in local territories and new opportunities for economic development.
Eni has set out a short, medium and long-term evolutionary path that will lead to carbon neutrality by 2050. This is based on an approach that looks at the environmental impact throughout the life cycle of activities and products. In keeping with this strategy, we are ready to make a concrete contribution to achieving the sustainable development goals. This involves researching new solutions for the redevelopment and revaluation of natural resources such as soil and water as well as industrial, remediated and organic waste, based on the principles of zero consumption and zero waste.
in accordance with Eni, our model for operational excellence is geared towards a commitment to valuing people and protecting the environment. Our commitment to sustainability, promoting the health and safety of workers, human rights in general, and operating with integrity and transparency, is a daily reality. These core values allow us to seize the opportunities arising from the new environmental and circular economy challenges, through technological innovation, expertise and experience gained in the field over the years.
The planet is in the midst of a profound transformation that requires a more equitable and inclusive development model. In this context, synergy and the sharing of expertise are key to ensuring responsible development for future generations. As Eni's environmental company, we have identified strategic initiatives and alliances to make an important contribution to the challenges of our time. These range from the energy transition to safeguarding the environment and regenerating nature's finite resources, while fostering constant and transparent dialogue with stakeholders.
Initiatives and events we support and take part in
We support a number of initiatives in the territories where we operate and take part in many events. This includes collaboration with the Italian Environmental Fund (FAI), trade fairs such as Ecomondo and RemTech, and institutional, cultural and sporting events.
In order to enhance the cultural heritage and landscape of the Conti Vecchi saltworks, Eni Rewind formed a partnership with FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano) to open the nature reserve and historic buildings to the public. Since 2017, the salt pans have welcomed around 20,000 people each year. Dedicated tours through the nature reserve include white salt mountains and flamingos.
From 26 to 29 October 2021, Ecomondo, the event that has become a reference point in Europe for the ecological transition and circular economy, is back as a strategic think tank dedicated to sector experts and innovators. Eni Rewind will be taking part in the conference sessions to share its experience in the field and take stock of proprietary technologies for the reclamation and valorisation of water, soil and waste. Not to be missed is the States General of the Green Economy event: an open discussion involving companies with the ambition of promoting new sustainable growth opportunities for the Italian economy as it grapples with global energy and climate challenges.
For the sixth consecutive year, Eni Rewind is sponsoring the “Trofeo Maremma”, a rally that winds its way through the Tuscan Colline Metallifere (or "Metal-bearing Hills") and enjoys passionate support from local communities. The rally takes place 23-24 October 2021. The total route is 250.95 km and features nine special stages, including the "Gavorrano", which is named after Eni Rewind – Eni's environmental company. In Tuscany, Eni Rewind owns concessions in a number of former mining and metallurgical towns. The company also owns areas that were legally transferred to Eni, where it is involved in soil and groundwater safety measures and remediation activities.
Eni Rewind's commitment to sharing its environmental know-how and experience is also achieved by taking part in key sector events. From 20 to 24 September 2021, we will be at RemTech Expo, the international trade fair dedicated to contaminated site remediation and land development, with more than ten presentations on sustainable remediation and the circular management of water, soil and waste.
Every November, Rimini becomes Italy’s green capital with Ecomondo, the largest European environmental trade fair that looks at and promotes the sustainable and circular development of the economy. The event hosts the States-General of the Green Economy, an occasion for the institutional, business and public sectors to discuss major topics of general interest such as climate change, resource and waste management, hydrogeological instability and the reclamation of large former industrial sites. We believed this to be the ideal setting to launch our new name, Eni Rewind, presented by CEO Paolo Grossi.
In June 2019, Cengio hosted the first edition of the Restart Music Festival. The municipality and its citizens intend to use the festival inject new energy and appeal into the town in the upper Bormida Valley. The company was the main partner of the event, due to its involvement in the remediation of the Cengio and Saliceto Site of National Priority and in the socio-cultural development of the area. The programme included performances in Piazza Martiri Partigiani by comedian Paolo Cevoli and singer Briga, as well as some young emerging artists.
In June 2019, the Venice Arsenal hosted the Venice Boat Show, an international trade fair dedicated to boats. Eni was a partner and participated with a stand dedicated to the circular economy and sustainability. Eni Rewind participated to present the Waste to Fuel technology, developed at Eni's Research Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy for the Environment in Novara, which transforms municipal solid waste into a bio-oil that can be used directly as bunker oil or to produce next generation fuels.
Starting in 2017, for one night a year, the Cengio and Saliceto Site of National Priority in Liguria is transformed into an opera house, opening its doors to the townspeople and opera lovers with open-air performances of famous operas. The first edition was Giacomo Puccini's Turandot, this was followed by Georges Bizet's Carmen in 2018. Eni Rewind sponsors the opera event with a view to enhancing the local area through social or cultural initiatives.
