The Network of Social Responsibility Delegates was established in 2007 and is a pivotal element of the self-responsibility model upon which the implementation of the Intesa Sanpaolo Code of Ethics is based.
It is a permanent network, coordinated by the ESG & Sustainability structure, which has the task of sharing the experiences of departments where Delegates operate and reporting any significant and transversal situation concerning social and environmental responsibility to the Managers of the Head Office Departments, the Divisions and the Group Banks.
Delegates collaborate with the ESG & Sustainability structure in order to identify the social responsibility objectives of the reference departments, manage the relations with stakeholders, monitor current projects, draw up the Consolidated Non-financial Statement and identify and manage cases of non-compliance with the Code of Ethics. The Network counts approximately 47 Delegates across all Departments and Group Banks in Italy and 11 Delegates from the International Subsidiary Banks.
The CSR Delegates Manifesto
- We share experience, strenght and individual talents ad to harmonise different roles and inspire fresh thought
- We generate authentic relationships in which thoughts and actions express their real meaning
- We welcome changes even when symbols and certaintes change, by accepting continuous challenges and searching for new perspectives
- Using energy motivation and experience we transform shared values into concrete actions and sustainable results.
In 2020 the training activities dedicated to the CSR delegates of the Banks of the International Subsidiary Banks Division continued. There were two main initiatives targeted at this community, also involving other interested local functions: the former aimed at
supporting banks in the implementation and integration of the rules on donations, issued in 2019. The course involved a total of 35 employees in 4 online webinars lasting two hours each, held between June and October 2020. The latter aimed at sharing the Group's methodologies for local non-financial reporting, starting from the main international non-financial standards and also gathering suggestions to improve the process. The programme involved 25 participants in a single online session, held in December 2020.
The Delegates’ presence in some work groups, set up within the Bank from time to time, enables us to keep a close check on some of the topics at hand, also during the planning stage of the activities.
