A sustainable Bank
We create tangible value for all our stakeholders by providing real solutions to real needs.
This is what we mean by Banking that matters. We are One Bank, One UniCredit - a simple, successful pan-European commercial bank with a fully plugged-in Corporate and Investment Bank (CIB), delivering a unique Western, Central and Eastern European network to our extensive and growing client franchise. We are committed to doing the right thing for all our shareholders, clients, colleagues, communities and the environment, to make sure that UniCredit remains a pan-European winner.
At UniCredit, we remain fully committed to sustainable value creation for all stakeholders. Our commitment to always “do the right thing” is our guiding principle for interactions with all our stakeholders, to generate sustainable results.
Our values unite us and define our Group culture, how we make decisions and how we act on them. Our set of commitments and targets covering Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) demonstrate how sustainability is part of our Group's DNA and is fully integrated in our business strategies.
In order to achieve the ambitious goals we have set for sustainability, clear and stable guidelines are needed.
Driven mainly by the desire for an ever-increasing integration of ESG criteria into the Group's overall industrial strategy, UniCredit's sustainability governance has undergone a profound evolution.
The changes concern both the Board and the managerial levels of our Governance.
The UniCredit Board of Directors defines the overall Group strategy.
The ESG Board Committee supports the Board of Directors in overseeing sustainability issues. The decision to create a new Board Committee which focuses exclusively on ESG responds to the need to further raise the level of responsibility on the topic and make it more effective and integrated in the overall corporate strategy.
It demonstrates UniCredit’s commitment that the Code of Ethics, , the Code of Conduct and policies on specific important human rights topics are already in place.
Certain sectors and activities that are sensitive to environmental and social risks require a special approach to our business. We apply detailed guidance and guidelines to these.
