Re-thinking of financial instruments to support the re-design of the industrial ecosystem
Intesa Sanpaolo Group’s commitment alongside the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, first as a CE100 Members and more recently as Financial Services Global Partner is consistent with the role that the first Italian financial institution plays in supporting the real economy and the growth of supply and productive chains through an innovative approach.
Intesa Sanpaolo is among the largest European banking groups and the leader in Italy in all business areas (retail, corporate, and wealth management) with 11.1 million customers. It is also active in Central Eastern Europe, with 8.2 million customers served by its subsidiaries, Middle Eastern and North Africa, as well as the United States, Brazil, Russia, India and China.
In its role as Global Partner, Intesa Sanpaolo will help to redefine business strategies and provide financial support for investments addressing the re-design of the industrial system.
Intesa Sanpaolo’s strategic choice to support the circular economy is consistent with the objective of promoting sustainable economic development in the long run. Intesa Sanpaolo has always been committed to social and environmental responsibility: in the period 2007 - 2014 the Group supported investments in the environment and renewable energy for more than 11 billion euro.
Corporate finance has a key role in supporting investments for the transformation of the business models into circular ones.
In this perspective, the strategic choice of Intesa Sanpaolo to position itself on this frontier among the innovative leaders at the international level is fully consistent.
