The Group is firmly convinced that socially and environmentally sustainable decisions are also winning business decisions, and that creating long-term, sustainable value can only be achieved by reinforcing all three pillars of corporate management – the economic-financial, the social, and the environmental one – as well as the transparency of corporate governance.
In 2014 Intesa Sanpaolo is among the top 20 greenest banks in the World according to the Bloomberg ranking "World's Greenest Banks". The Group is also listed among the 100 most sustainable companies in the Newsweek "World's Greenest Companies 2014".
The Intesa Sanpaolo Group takes an active and responsible role in the development and promotion of the areas and the communities in which it operates, through a variety of activities as well as of international projects for areas in difficulty.
This commitment is achieved by donations aimed at addressing situations of temporary difficulty of the areas and by sponsorships supporting various topics (arts and culture, research, economic growth).
