UN global compact COE: FEEM renewed commitment on sustainable development

Over recent years, the centrality of sustainable development has been increasingly established. The most significant event is represented by the approval of the new Agenda for Sustainable Development, "Transforming our World by 2030 - New Agenda for Global Action", which has redefined, with a transversal and integrated approach, the global goals aimed to meet the challenges of the coming three decades. The Agenda is a global pact to "leave no one behind" and calls upon all organizations - public, private, profit and non profit - and civil society to become partners along the path to achieve common goals.

Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) is a leading institution in the field of research on a wide range of environmental, energy and global economic issues. As such, FEEM is aware of its important role in the promotion and implementation of the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact and the 2030 Agenda, which are areas of primary concern of FEEM activities and research that are aimed to develop and implement tools for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Thanks to the interdisciplinarity of its research, the attention devoted to integrated themes and approaches, collaborations and networks, FEEM can give a key contribution to the promotion of a sustainable future by developing theoretical and applied research projects, disseminating knowledge and supporting the key players of sustainable development. FEEM’s Code of Conduct commits the organization to act in line with UNGC Principles, encourages sustainable behavior from an environmental and social point of view, promotes the responsible use of natural resources in daily activities (Principles 7, 8 and 9) and underlines the importance of human relationships (Principles from 1 to 6). Furthermore, the Code rejects corruption and lack of transparency by implementing the tools to counter them (Principle 10). In 2015, FEEM adopted a new “Organisational, Management and Control Model” pursuant to Italian Legislative Decree 231/2001 including a new Surveillance Body, which monitors the functioning, effectiveness and compliance to the Model.

In order to bring about a pervasive change, FEEM is constantly involved in networking activities to enhance the skills of its researchers and to reach out to all policy levels. For this purpose, FEEM is the national office and hosting institution of several major international networks in the field of sustainable development, including the Global Compact Italian Network Foundation (GCNI) and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN Italy), an initiative that aims at contextualizing the 2030 Agenda into the local Italian reality.

Following the above considerations, FEEM’s participation in the Global Compact (GC) represents the opportunity of pursuing action at both the national and international level.The alignment of goals between the GC and FEEM is a very important lever of sustainable development in the global change path. For this reason, the Foundation renews its commitment to the initiative of the UN Global Compact and its ten principles in order to promote a more sustainable culture able to support a responsible and inclusive global growth.
