Eni E&P Division and Shell Italia launched biodiversity project

Eni E&P Division and Shell Italia E&P established a working group that, in 2003, launched the AgriBioDiversity project, in collaboration with Fauna and Flora International and the World Conservation Union and others, for biodiversity monitoring in the ecologically sensitive area of Val d’Agri, southern Italy.

The AgriBioDiversity project had two main objectives: to develop a biodiversity monitoring programme as a tool to assess and reduce or mitigate the impacts of E&P activities; and, to define best practices for integrating biodiversity
conservation into environmental management systems and operations. The outcomes of the AgriBioDiversity project are to be incorporated into operating best practices in the Val d’Agri concessions, as well as into the wider Eni and Shell organizations, and will also contribute to the Energy and Biodiversity Initiative (EBI) trials.
