A large banking group like Intesa Sanpaolo is aware of having a significant impact on the social and environmental context in which it carries out its business thus choosing to act not only on the basis of profit, but also with the aim of creating long-term value for the Bank, its employees, customers, community and the environment.

Intesa Sanpaolo wants to be a responsible financial intermediary that generates collective value knowing that innovation, development of new products and services and corporate responsibility can contribute to reducing the impact on society of phenomena such as climate change and social inequality.

Such awareness generates the adherence to important international initiatives, such as the United Nations Global Compact and the Equator Principles.
Intesa Sanpaolo Group is one of the few European financial groups to have joined all the main United Nations initiatives concerning the financial sector in the field of sustainability, which are part of the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (UN Sustainable Development Goals): the Principles for Responsible Banking, the Principles for Responsible Investments, signed by Eurizon already in 2015, to which were added Fideuram Asset Management SGR and Fideuram Asset Management at the beginning of 2021 , the Principles for Sustainable Insurance with the adhesion of Intesa Sanpaolo Vita and finally the Women's Empowerment Principles, for the promotion of gender equality and women's professional development.
