Commitment towards society
We commit to society and the community through various initiatives.
- We intend to become the first Impact Bank in the world, with funds specifically intended to guarantee loans to people within society that would otherwise have difficulty accessing credit, notwithstanding their potential. The first initiative of our Impact Fund was “Per Merito”, an “honour loan” for deserving students.
- We support those in difficulty, in particular through our project “Cibo e riparo per i bisognosi” (“Food and Shelter for the Less Fortunate”), intended to provide meals, clothing, shelter, and medicines to vulnerable people. Our structure dedicated towards Social Enhancement takes care of the planning of specific initiatives, creating a network with third sector organizations as a means of multiplying of impact across the territory. Social commitment is part of our history: we are the largest financier of the third sector in Italy.
- We enhance the value of the artistic, cultural, and historical heritage of our group, to promote art and culture in Italy and abroad.
