Time: 6:30 PDT/09:30 EDT/14:30 BST/15:30 CEST

Duration: 1h

Eni hosted its ESG Investor Briefing as part of a joint PRI-UN Global Compact initiative designed to improve company-investor communications on ESG information, following the model of traditional financial quarterly calls.

Claudio Descalzi, E&P Chief Operation Officer, presented the company’s ESG value drivers using a framework developed in collaboration with Global Compact LEAD companies and PRI investors, which was followed by a 30 minutes Q&A session for participating investors.

The Eni ESG Investor Briefing is a part of a series of 10-15 pilot presentations by Global Compact companies in 2012-2013 designed to test and refine the ESG Investor Briefing concept and develop a framework complementary to sustainability reporting for corporate communication with the investor community on strategic ESG risks and opportunities.
