Intesa Sanpaolo's “Think Forestry” is coming to Varese: 1,000 trees of local species will be planted at the Campo dei Fiori National Park, promoting the recovery of ecosystems damaged by fires and extreme weather events.

Think Forestry is Intesa Sanpaolo's project dedicated to the reforestation and protection of natural capital with the aim of planting and preserving 100 million trees globally, as parte of the ESG commitment undertaken with the 2022-2025 Business Plan.

The Campo dei Fiori Park was established in 1984 to protect an area with a high diversity of tree species growing on its slopes: its highest altitudes have a clear prevalence of beech and extensive reforestation of conifers compromised by extreme weather events as well as the spruce bark beetle epidemic; the lower portion mainly includes chestnut, ash, linden and sycamore maple.

As part of the Think Forestry project, which has already reached Turin, Rome and Naples, Intesa Sanpaolo also aims to involve as many local companies as possible committed to reducing their environmental impact, and thus embarking on a process of sustainable development with the objective of zero emissions.

Think Forestry is being carried out in collaboration with Rete Clima Impresa Sociale, a leader in Italy in the development of decarbonisation projects for companies, ESG solutions and new national urban and suburban forestation.
