In the short term eni believes it will be necessary to pursue the sustainable use of fossil fuels. All Countries, from industrialized ones to those with newly emerging economies, must commit to achieve maximum efficiency in the use of fossil fuels.
In this context the private sector must play a leading role.
In the medium to long term eni believes the energy mix must be made more sustainable by promoting low carbon sources, starting with natural gas and non-subsidized renewables, overcoming current technological limits and encouraging research to develop more efficient technologies.
For many years eni has been committed to combating climate change by reducing flaring and increasing energy efficiency. eni is committed to combating climate change by reducing flaring and increasing energy efficiency.
With regard to flaring, eni continues to pursue its commitment through its participation in the World Bank’s “Global Gas Flaring Reduction” initiative. eni has also adopted a programme to progressively reduce gas flaring and promote Access to Energy in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The reduction of gas flaring is firmly linked to the capacity of the Countries where eni operates to invest in energy infrastructures to enable use of natural gas (gas pipelines, local distribution, LNG terminals, power stations). eni has overcome such difficulties by investing directly in the construction of power stations and gas pipelines, implementing solutions guaranteeing the progress of the host Country.
Between 2007 and 2013 eni reduced the volume of associated gas flared by 65%.
