In December 2013 eni and Transparency International have signed a collaboration agreement for the joint development of an innovative method of “Country Assessment” with the purpose of highlighting, in a specific geographical context, the impact of corruption on business activities and the conditioning that results.

- the cooperation agreement with the International Scientific and Professional Advisory Council of the United Nations Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Programme (ISPAC);
- participation in the review process of the application of the OECD and UNCAC conventions in Italy;
