Eni supports an energy transition that can preserve the environment, provide access to energy for all and be socially equitable at the same time.
This challenge requires a collective commitment and the active participation of all the parties involved, including the supply chain.
Therefore, as Procurement we recognize the key role of our Supply Chain in the transformation path and promote its sustainable development by actively contributing to the achievement of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.
"Sustainable Procurement" at Eni means sharing values, commitments and objectives with the supply chain, verifying the ESG positioning of suppliers at all stages of the process and supporting and involving the supply chain in a path of sustainable growth, providing suppliers with programmes for the continuous improvement of their ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) performance and their market competitiveness.
Our commitment rests on four pillars:
To accelerate the energy transition, we are convinced that an approach involving the Supply Chain to meet common goals is needed. We therefore call on the big players to take a leading role, guiding their supply chains in the transformation process. We accompany small and medium enterprises on their ESG journey by providing support tools.
This approach aims to foster widespread awareness of sustainability along the supply chain and promote synergies within the business system, favouring growth and strengthening the competitiveness of companies.
The principles of environmental protection, social growth and economic development as well as technical/operational, ethical and reputational aspects are an integral part of our Procurement Process, from qualification and tender procedures through to contract management and feedback.
To support companies on their sustainable development path, we launched the Sustainable Supply Chain Programme, which includes a series of tools, initiatives and opportunities for discussion aimed at actively involving the supply chain, stimulating its growth and strengthening mutual commitment to fundamental values such as environmental protection, respect for human rights, transparency and integrity of behaviour, as well as collaboration.
We define and monitor targets and action plans with our suppliers to guide the common path towards a fair and sustainable transition.To learn more about the transformation path undertaken by Eni, the commitments made, the main achievements, targets and SDG's to which we contribute, download the Annual Financial Report and our Sustainability Report.
"We want to achieve a fair and sustainable energy transition with a pragmatic and systematic approach that involves industry and finance in achieving shared and achievable goals. It is essential that large companies play a leading role, supporting their supply chain on a path of operational and technological improvement that strengthens competitiveness"
Costantino Chessa, Head of Procurement di Eni
