Commitment to environment: data

The containment of CO2 emissions play an important role in the policies of the Group which, with the Climate Change Action Plan, has identified specific medium-term actions for reducing its environmental footprint and, as a result, its emissions. 
Since 2020, the operations and purchases of the Intesa Sanpaolo Group have seen habits and ways of working change. The activation of widespread smart working, especially in the Group's headquarters, has had effects on the purchase of paper, for which a dematerialization process was already underway, but also of toner and special waste. The Bank also has a concrete and constant commitment to loans and services for the Green Economy.

Greenhouse emissions

In 2021, all in all, Scope1 + Scope2 Market-based greenhouse gas emissions fell by 3.7% vs 2020*. This result was achieved through continuous improvement in terms of energy efficiency and, in part, also through the commercial reorganisation that took place during the year (sale of former UBI Group branches and closures due to mergers). Thus, 2021 confirmed the downtrend in electricity consumption, settling at -9.1% compared to the previous year. A 36% reduction was achieved against a target of 40% reduction in absolute emissions linked to energy consumption (direct and indirect) (target to be achieved in 2022 with respect to 2012 emissions).

* The 2020 figures were redetermined to include the UBI Banca Group for the entire year.

Energy consumption

In addition to the energy efficiency measures aimed at reducing its environmental impact, the Intesa Sanpaolo Group has committed, where possible, to producing electricity through the installation of photovoltaic plants and to purchasing electricity from renewable sources. The total consumption of electricity from renewable sources amounted to approximately 87% of total consumption of electricity.
The target, revised in 2020, of purchasing electricity from renewable sources equal to 89% by the end of 2022 has almost been met (~88% of renewable electricity purchased out of total purchases in 2021).
