Corporate Ethics and Corporate Governance
When formulating its corporate governance system, integrity and transparency were the key principles on which Eni focused and the system is structured in accordance with applicable legal and specific regulations, as well as with the Bye-laws, the Code of Ethics, and the recommendations outlined in the Corporate Governance Code of Listed Companies, as well as internal regulations and best practice throughout the sector.
Code of Ethics
Social responsibility is an essential component of the Eni group's self-image and the way it acts. The group's aim has always been to combine competitiveness with sustainability.
This is a challenge in which the company strives to achieve lasting growth, innovation and economic success. At the same time, Eni places great emphasis on improving quality of life, developing working standards, protecting human rights and promoting environmentally friendly development. In so doing, it demonstrates its ability to integrate itself into various cultures and fields.
This investment in the competitiveness and future of the company is based on Eni's code of ethics, as well as high standards with respect to the way the company is managed in accordance with national and international laws and agreements.
Eni understands the links between energy supply, progress and the environment, as well as the vision of a world that is open to the needs of everyone. It has been a pioneer in meeting these major challenges which shape our society and its sustainable development. The goals that have already been achieved and the recognition the company has received confirm the efficacy of this model and its future viability.
Against this background and in the interest of reinforcing our commitment, Eni has developed an Organisational, Management and Control Model (also called Model 231) that ensures Eni's compliance with the Italian legislative decree 231 of 8 June 2001 and prevents misconduct related to the administrative liability of the company as sanctioned by this legislation. Subsequently, Eni's single companies in Germany adopted the model according to local and structural conditions. In front of this background and to reinforce its own consistent commitment in this sense, Eni has developed a Code of Ethics, which has been a fundamental component of the previous organizational, management and control model (Model 231). Effective at the end of March 2018, the Eni Code of Ethics replaces Model 231 of Eni Deutschland and Eni Schmiertechnik in an updated form and reflects the fundamental values of Eni as an independent, central document.

Anti-Corruption and Whistleblowing
Eni considers corruption to be an intolerable obstacle to business efficiency and fair competition. To this end, Eni considers ethical integrity, full respect of the law and regulations and fairness to be constant commitments of all of its personnel.
In November 2009, to implement this commitment in the business, the company voluntarily extended its compliance program to the risks of corruption by adopting the Anti-Corruption Guidelines and their Ancillary Procedures.
Furthermore, Eni’s Whistleblowing reporting channel allows employees, members of corporate bodies or third parties to forward (including confidentially and/or anonymously) complaints relating to problems in the internal control system (compliance with law and corporate policies, guidelines or procedures, fraud involving corporate assets, financial reporting, administrative liability of the Company, etc.) or other violations of the Code of Ethics (issues involving ethical conduct, mobbing, harassment, conflicts relating to human resource management, etc.).

Commitment to Sustainability
Sustainability is an integral part of the history and culture of Eni. It is the driving force for a process of continuous improvement and cuts across all areas of the company, guaranteeing the sustainability of results over time and strengthening the process of development and valorization. This commitment is reflected in Eni's principles, guidelines and management decisions which characterize and shape the way it operates. This promotes creativity and innovation with the aim of establishing a culture of sustainability and strengthening the trust of stakeholders.
