what is the Integrated Report for Eni It is the main document that addresses primarily the financial community with the aim of representing how the Company creates sustainable value through an integrated management of the business. It is oriented to illustrate how sustainability contributes to value creation, claryfing some important links between financial and non financial views. It illustrates the main business goals, related risks and impacts, and the way the company manages business to avoid or mitigate such risks, adding to the “more traditional” economic and financial results. An Interfunctional Working Group was created in 2011, made up of Administration, Planning, Investor Relation, Enterprise Risk Management, Governance and Sustainability units.
