Certified environmental and energy management system

For years Intesa Sanpaolo has had an Integrated Management System (Health and Safety, Environment and Energy) applied to all its instrumental buildings in Italy. The Management System is periodically subject to internal audits and, annually, to a certification process (ISO 14001, 50001 and 45001 standards) and supervision by an independent third-party body. In 2022, the third-party body confirmed the validity of all certifications.
