Alliances for development

In the countries where we operate, we establish development alliances based on the enhancement of local resources. In addition to facilitating access to electricity for populations that still do not have it, we promote Local Development Programmes with various community initiatives. At the same time, we are committed to creating job opportunities and transferring know-how and expertise to local partners.

Partnership for development

A key element of our business model is the focus on cooperation, a strategy that is reinforced by public-private partnerships and which contributes to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The network of actors with whom we work is as wide as possible and includes International Organizations, development banks, national institutions, the private sector, universities and research centres, cooperation bodies and civil society organizations.


We want to help support a just energy transition through a network of partnerships with internationally recognized players.

Business-integrated sustainability

To better understand the realities in which we operate, we analyze the socioeconomic, environmental and cultural contexts throughout the business cycle. By understanding local needs and in line with SDGs, we can define priority areas of intervention and contribute to the development of host countries. Several partnerships with institutions, cooperation agencies

and stakeholders support us in this task. In addition, we focus on the potential impact of activities to identify critical issues, opportunities and risks, including the respect and promotion of human rights. Once implemented, we evaluate the effectiveness of our actions. Taken together, this approach allows us to integrate sustainability into the business.

Human rights in communities

For Eni, respect for human rights is a substantial commitment. All exploration and upstream development projects, as well as those of renewable energy, are carefully assessed for their possible impact on individuals and host communities.

The analysis is conducted on the basis of shared and transparent methodologies, directly involving the main rightsholders where possible. From these studies we can identify recommendations to prevent potential effects and manage existing ones.
