The new 2022-2025 Business Plan the Plan confirms and envisages strong and sustainable value creation and distribution, solid capital position and a significant ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) commitment.

With reference to ESG issues, Intesa Sanpaolo intends to further strengthen its role as a leading bank. It envisages doing this by committing funds in 2022-2025 for around €115 billion to society and the green transition and around €500 million in support of people in need, as well as working towards achieving a net-zero emission target, in terms of own emissions by 2030 and in terms of loan and investment portfolios, asset management and insurance by 2050, and, in addition, protecting and restoring natural capital with more than 100 million trees planted over the four-year Plan horizon, directly as a Group or with dedicated financing for its clients, and the adoption of a specific policy on biodiversity.

At Intesa Sanpaolo, we believe that it is only possible to grow and prosper by making a positive contribution to the communities in which we operate. That is why the new Plan further strengthens our ESG commitment.
