Our activities are based on a business model that has brought us to an excellent strategic positioning and the acquisition of competitive advantages. The corporate governance system is a cornerstone of our business model: alongside the business strategy, aims to support the relationship of trust with those who work with us and to contribute to the achievement of business results, creating sustainable value in the long run. We are “energy solution” in the countries where we work. Eni wants to improve the conditions of access to energy in the countries in which it operates. The inspiration is that of the Mattei formula, which since the Sixties aimed to establish an equal relationship with producing countries oil, creating the basis of a model of economic development manager. The belief, initiated by the founder and still valid today, is to empower the producing countries from energy supply point of view, through the path of dialogue and of respect for cultures. We work in an increasingly broad scenario, the contact with different worlds and cultures is our everyday life. What we do is to create the system with the local people, contributing to the development of the territories in which we operate. Our commitment is realized through long-term agreements with the governments of the countries and local projects for the benefit of local communities, dialogue and involvement. For us, environmental protection is essential for sustainable development in the implementation of industrial projects and throughout the life cycle of our plants. We assess the environmental, social impacts, economic and cultural generated by our activities, including on indigenous peoples, guaranteeing mitigation and constantly putting into practice improvement processes. Being sustainable means for us to manage the risks and mitigate the impacts deriving from operating activities, creating added value for all.

They provide objectivity, specific knowledge, skills and experience and will be entirely focused upon the tasks at hand. The Platinum Client Service (PCS) will provide your organization with a valuable resource as and when you need it.
