Eni urges Greenpeace and ReCommon to suspend climate change lawsuit

Greenpeace and ReCommon's request risks causing a lengthy suspension of the decision

  • By ICN Bureau | June 22, 2024

Eni acknowledges that Greenpeace and ReCommon - who filed a wholly unfounded lawsuit against Eni related to climate issues last year - have requested a suspension of the legal proceeding. Such suspension follows their filing of a jurisdictional review of the Italian contest (despite the jurisdiction already being excluded from the so-called “Giudizio Universale” law case brought by several associations against the Italian State, concerning climate issues too).

Eni disputes the rationale for this request, as it is clearly aimed at obtaining a suspension of a lawsuit initiated by the very same Greenpeace and ReCommon. For this lawsuit, the presiding judge had already set the hearing for the decision on September 13, 2024.

Greenpeace and ReCommon's request risks causing a lengthy suspension of the decision, that otherwise would have been expected shortly. Any delay would allow Greenpeace and ReCommon to continue their ongoing disinformation campaign, prioritizing media attention over rigorous research, analysis, and evaluation. This crucial fact-checking process, which should occur in court, is now postponed at the behest of the parties that instigated the lawsuit.

Eni would like to point out that despite the unfounded nature of the lawsuit, it has always provided the Court all the elements proving its proper conduct, and its transformation and decarbonization strategy, publishing all related documents as well on its website.
