We are committed to limiting our environmental impact, reducing our ecological footprint in terms of greenhouse gases emissions and containing our consumption of raw materials.

We have embarked on a path of self-analysis aimed at setting new environmental and climate targets and continuing to monitor our emissions.

Environmental Policy

The Environmental Policy identifies the the Bank's approach in the environmental themes management. The document outlines in general terms the measures and the interventions the Group intends to take in relation to the environmental issues. The Group considers the environmental impacts as a relevant topic and consequently aims to reduce the effects on the environment generated by the consumption of resources, the generation of waste and other activities with direct impact and also to manage the effects arising from activities with indirect impact, related to products and services for the customers.

MANAGING DIRECT IMPACTS
  • Improvement of energy-consuming systems
  • Managing paper consumption
  • Attention to proper waste collection and disposal
  • Use of renewable energy
  • Use of goods and services with less environmental impact
  • Raising awareness of proper use of water and energy
  • Promoting sustainable mobility
Managing direct impacts
Managing indirect impacts
MANAGING INDIRECT IMPACTS
  • Activities oriented towards the Community and the employees: training, information and participation in initiatives
  • Customer-oriented activities: raising awareness and offering more sustainable products and services
  • Supplier-oriented activities: sustainable procurement management and selection

  • ESG risks

    Managing ESG risks, particularly climate and environmental risks, is a challenge for the financial sector, driven by growing regulatory pressure and the increasing occurrence of extreme weather events.

    ESG Risks Inventory

    In 2021, we updated our ESG Risk Inventory to identify possible negative impacts on the company’s business from ESG factors.

    ESG Heat Map

    We have developed a ‘sector risk matrix’ (so-called Heat Map), i.e. a tool to identify the potential exposure of our counterparties to ESG risk factors.

    Climate stress test

    We participate in the exercise (so-called stress test) initiated by the European Central Bank starting in early 2022 to assess the preparedness of the banking sector to cope with economic and financial shocks resulting from climate risk (physical and transition).

    The figure represents the dangerousness, for areas of our country, of certain climaterelated phenomena: impacts on economic activities, as well as on the value of real estate, can no longer be overlooked by the financial sector.

    Transition risk

    Financial loss directly or indirectly related to the transition to a lowcarbon and more environmentally sustainable economy.

    Physical risk

    Financial impact of climate to frequent extreme weather events (‘acute’ physical risk) and to gradual climate changes (‘chronic’ physical risk), as well as environmental degradation, air, water and soil pollution, water stress, loss of biodiversity and deforestation.

  • Calculating emissions

    We calculated the Scope 3 emissions of a credit portfolio for counterparties belonging to the most polluting sectors
