A leading banking group like Intesa Sanpaolo can have a significant impact on the society and environment in which it operates. It is therefore its responsibility to behave in a manner that is not just aimed at making profits but which also creates value over the long term for the Bank and its people, for its customers, for the community and for the environment.
This understanding has led to adhering to important international initiatives, such as the UN Global Compact and the Equator Principles, aimed at promoting dialogue among firms, international organisations and society in general and to pursue respect for the environment and human rights.
This is the concept of sustainability that Intesa Sanpaolo has adopted and the Business Plan 2014-2017 demonstrates the increasing integration of social and environmental issues into its business strategy and affirms the role that the Group must play in the territories in which it operates: the Bank as a growth driver both in terms of creating value and of support for the real economy; the Bank with a clear business model that takes into account the needs of all types of customer, simplifying and innovating; the Bank that sees human resources as a strategic asset to be enhanced through training and career development; the Bank that operates in the community and local areas to create shared value.
