Anti-Corruption Compliance Program
To address the high risks faced by the company in carrying out its activities, Eni has adopted an Anti-Corruption Compliance Program, a system of rules and controls first introduced in 2009 aimed to prevent corruption, in line with the “zero tolerance” principle outlined in Eni’s Code of Ethics and with international best practice. In particular, Eni and all its subsidiaries, in Italy and abroad, are required to adopt and implement the Anti-Corruption Management System Guidelines approved by Eni’s Board of Directors in 2014, aimed at preventing all forms of corruption involving both public officials and private parties.
The Anti-Corruption Compliance Unit carries out specialist activities to ensure the effectiveness of the Compliance Program for Eni and its unlisted subsidiaries in Italy and abroad. The Unit is responsible for the verification of due diligence assessments with regard to integrity, professional reliability and reputation of potential contractual partners, for the management of “red flags” (or warning signs) and the drafting of contractual safeguard measures in areas at risk of corruption, submitting regular reports to the controlling bodies and Eni’s Watch Structure.
