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 various activities that include participation in national and international projects, consistent with the Sustainable Development Goals, supportto non-profit organizations, the promotion of social solidarity initiatives and cultural and educational intervention.
The Group’s commitment is achieved by donations both aimed at addressing situations of temporary difficulty of the areas or for long-term solidarity interventions; sponsorships supporting various topics (arts and culture, research, economic growth); significant investments in the Progetto Cultura, a strategic reference framework containing the multi-year planning of the Bank’s cultural initiatives.
The attention towards the cultural life of our country has led in fact our Bank to share its own important artistic, architectural, editorial and documentary heritage, deriving from the history and tradition of patronage of the credit institutions that have become part of the Group, as well as to contribute to safeguarding Italy’s cultural heritage.
In 2018 the Intesa Sanpaolo Group recorded an overall contribution to the community, measured by the London Benchmarking Group standard, amounting to 67 million euro. The majority of this is cash contribution, that amounts to 61.7 million euro.
