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. In line with our values, Ethics and Respect, 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. As One team, One UniCredit, we are convinced that our two values, Ethics and Respect (E&R), represent what is most important for the Group and for all our stakeholders today; 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. The strategy of our group is approved by the Board of Directors and the work of the Board is assisted by the Corporate Governance, Nomination and Sustainability Committee (CGN & S). The Commitee oversees sustainability issues within the UniCredit Group, monitors progress in this area and ensures that progress is made in line with international guidelines.
The Commitee has an important role to play in ensuring that sustainability is always present in the Group's business strategy and that it monitors, together with the Chief Ethics Officer, that the highest ethical standards are met. ’Do the right thing!’ is one of the guiding principles of UniCredit and it is the responsibility of the Chief Ethics Officer to make this known to all concerned.
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.
