Navigating the sustainable transition is a key part of empowering our communities to progress. In 2022, UniCredit continued to support its clients and communities in the transition towards a fairer and more sustainable future
In line with our Net Zero commitment, we became the first bank in Italy to sign a Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (CPPA) with a specialist green power producer for our core data centres, and the first bank in Europe to obtain the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark scoring on its corporate portfolio.
We were also proudly recognised as the Best ESG Bank Italy 2022 by the World Economic Magazine and the Best Social Impact Bank Europe 2022 by Capital Finance International.
Furthermore, we continued to increase the scope of our social activities with a strong commitment to Youth and Education, launching a foundational partnership with Teach For All to elevate education for children across seven of our countries and strengthening our ESG culture with dedicated training programmes for all staff under the UniCredit ESG University. In addition, we were the first company in Italy to sign up to the Finance for Biodiversity Pledge, further supporting or Net Zero journey and commitment, and our Group also became a member of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s international charity network to support our approach to accelerating the circular economy transition across our countries.
