Coal sector policy is approved

Intesa Sanpaolo has issued a policy that defines limitations and exclusion criteria with reference to credit operations in the coal sector for the Group. The policy applies to lending operations provided by the Group, in all the countries where it operates, in the sectors of thermal coal mining and Coal Fired Power Plants (CFPPs).

Intesa Sanpaolo will continue to finance companies that demonstrate a documented medium/long-term strategy for the progressive reduction of the use of coal or request financing directly related to coal transition objectives, for example in the form of “green loan”, “sustainable loan” or “transition loan”.
