Spending for the territory
eni cooperates in the implementation of initiatives to ensure autonomous, lasting and sustainable local development, through setting up large skills and knowledge networks, sharing of these resources and capabilities, and working in partnership with local communities and organizations and development promoters. The overall cost for the implementation of these community investment projects amounted to over 57 million euro in 2013, more than 93% of which was spent on exploration and production activities.

This undertaking is part of an overall expenditure for the territory amounting to over€100 million euro in 2013 which includes, in addition to community investments, contributions to local initiatives, membership fees for associations, sponsorship and contributions to the Eni Enrico Mattei Foundation.
