A large banking group like Intesa Sanpaolo is aware of having a significant impact on the social and environmental context in which it carries out its business thus choosing to act not only on the basis of profit, but also with the aim of creating long-term value for the Bank, its employees, customers, community and the environment.
Such awareness generates the adherence to important international initiatives, such as the United Nations Global Compact and the Equator Principles, aimed at promoting dialogue between companies, international organisations and society and to pursue respect for the environment and human rights.

The Plan confirms the role of Intesa Sanpaolo as a real economy Bank and seeks to generate sustainable profitability to create value for all stakeholders, starting with our customers to whom we wish to offer an ever more personalised, innovative and complete service, with over 300 billion euro contributed to the economy over the four-year period.
