Sustainability represents the link between strategy and financial performance on the one hand and the environmental and socio-economic context on the other. Its goal is to direct behaviors and attitudes towards a common goal: to generate value for all stakeholders.
Such a goal can be shared and measured.
The world of finance and investments can in fact influence in sustainable terms not only investor choices, but also corporate performance in terms of sustainability. In fact, the performance of companies can be measured according to ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) criteria, i.e. standardized and shared parameters that guarantee the achievement of specific environmental, social and corporate governance outcomes.
Evolution towards a sustainable world is also the key to our evolution.
Even before distributing ESG products or building ESG portfolios, our Group has applied Sustainability criteria.
E for Environment: We have made a commitment to become Carbon Neutral by 2025. This means that, for each kilogram of CO2 produced, we undertake to fund reforestation measures to offset these emissions.
S for Social: We are the only Italian bank to be Equal Salary certified. It means that, we pay our female and male employees equally for the same job or for job of the same value.
G for Governance: Since 2021 we have set up a dedicated Risk Committee within our Group which does not only deal with measuring financial risks, but also monitors environmental/climate and IT security risks.
