UniCredit switches to Mastercard Touch Card™ with accessibility features for blind and partially sighted people

PRESS RELEASE
22 April 2024
  Pan European bank is the first banking group to launch the card at scale in 12 markets and across all products   As part of its partnership with Mastercard, UniCredit is upgrading all its debit, credit and pre-paid cards to Mastercard Touch Card™, which includes features for blind and partially sighted people, making it more accessible.   Cards with this new feature are now available in Italy and will be gradually introduced over the course of 2024 to all clients in the twelve countries where the bank operates, covering some 20 million cards.   The Mastercard Touch Card™ design is based on a system of side notches to help consumers identify the right card by touch alone. The distinct notch helps visually impaired customers differentiate between their payment cards.   The card is designed to increase independence for people with visual impairments while making online or in-store payments with their cards. In Europe, it is estimated that there are over 30 million blind and partially sighted people. An average of 1 in 30 Europeans experience sight loss[i].   Inclusion is an integral part of UniCredit's culture and social strategy, and this initiative underscores the bank´s commitment to fostering a more inclusive, barrier-free society.   In line with the bank’s ESG principles, the card is also made from recycled PVC, with each product imprinted with a Mastercard Sustainable Card Badge, certifying its sustainability credentials.   Alberto Palombi, Head of Group Payment Solutions, UniCredit, said “UniCredit and Mastercard are both firmly focused on the future. Our partnership, combining UniCredit’s network of European banks and innovation, with Mastercard’s expertise in card payments, is enabling us to provide a simple, seamless experience for all our European customers that is also inclusive and achieved sustainably. Empowering our communities means ensuring that everyone has access to the financial tools they need. This is why we are pleased to announce the integration of notches into our cards for blind and partially sighted customers, which have also been made using certified sustainable materials. Banks have a key role to play in shaping a better world, and this is another way that we wish to show our customers that we are there to support them.”   “Inclusion lies at the core of Mastercard´s values, and Mastercard Touch Card™ exemplifies our commitment to standards in payment cards, promoting inclusivity. We are delighted to work with an esteemed partner like UniCredit to deliver consumer-centric solutions that enhance accessibility for all,” said Mark Barnett, President, Mastercard Europe.   Read more about Mastercard Touch Card™ here.   Milan, 22 April 2024   Contacts Media Relations e mail: mediarelations@unicredit.eu     [i] Facts and figures | European Blind Union (euroblind.org)

A Pool of banks led by UniCredit provides EUR 320m Project Financing to EP Centrale Ostiglia S.p.A. for a new combined-cycle gas turbine unit located in Lombardy

PRESS RELEASE
18 April 2024
  The company, fully held by EP Produzione S.p.A. (100% EPH Group), has been financed by Banco BPM, BPER, DZ BANK, MUFG, SMBC Bank EU AG and UniCredit   A pool of banks led by UniCredit recently finalized a EUR 320m mini-perm project financing in favor of EP Centrale Ostiglia S.p.A., a company fully held by the shareholder EP Produzione S.p.A. and indirectly owned by the sponsor EP Power Europe a.s., 100% EPH Group.   The project implies the construction and operation of a new combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) unit for a total nominal capacity of 880MW, built with state-of-the-art technology.   The new unit - which has been awarded with a 15-year Capacity Market contract effective 2024 with the Italian TSO (Terna S.p.A) - will contribute to the path towards a sustainable energy transition in Italy and to the stability of the national electricity system, thanks to its highly flexible and low-emission production, compensating the intermittency of renewables and favoring the achievement of the decarbonization goals set by the Italian Integrated National Energy And Climate Plan.   The new asset, to be realized in an existing industrialized area (hence without exploiting new land), is technologically ready for the use of mix of hydrogen and natural gas, and it is also equipped with an air condenser to mitigate the impact on water natural resources, increasing the unit availability and reliability also during the more frequent dry seasons.   The innovative structured finance transaction within the energy sector was originated, set-up and coordinated by UniCredit in its role of Global Coordinator & Bookrunner, Structuring Mandated Lead Arranger, Original Lender and Hedging Bank, and underwritten also by a unique set of local and international banks as Banco BPM, BPER, DZ BANK, MUFG and SMBC Bank EU AG as Mandated Lead Arrangers, Original Lenders and Banco BPM, BPER, MUFG and SMBC Bank EU AG as Hedging Banks, with BPER also acting as Account Bank & Agent.   In addition to this project, EP Produzione is also developing another 800 MW CCGT unit, with latest H class technology, in Tavazzano and Montanaso power plant. Both projects, for a total of 1.600 MW new capacity, will introduce to the Italian energy market a new level of efficiency and flexibility within the needed programable power generation.   Legance - Avvocati Associati supported the Lenders as Legal Advisor, while PedersoliGattai as the Borrower Legal Advisor. Fichtner and Willis Towers Watson acted as Technical-Environmental and Insurance Advisors respectively. PricewaterhouseCoopers S.p.A. acted as model auditor.   Milan, 18 April 2024   Enquiries: Media Relations e-mail: MediaRelations@unicredit.eu

UniCredit expands Swift GPI to retail clients

PRESS RELEASE
18 April 2024
  Pan-European bank front runner in offering cross-border service across key geographies   UniCredit is now the first and only bank across its core markets to offer Swift GPI on international payments across each of its client segments – from retail clients up to SMEs and multinational corporates – following its recent roll-out of the free service in Austria, Italy and Germany.   Swift GPI enables banks to offer a faster, transparent, and traceable cross-border payments service, with end-to-end visibility on transactions and accurate and real-time payment information.   At UniCredit, retail clients now receive updates on the status of their international payments via a simple push notification – the latest example of the bank improving digital channels and building its business around clients.   In the payments sphere, UniCredit’s ambition is to be every European client’s first choice.   This means operating at the vanguard of industry trends, particularly in terms of how the bank looks at the client experience – allowing it to capture more payments in the process.   Raphael Barisaac, UniCredit’s Global Head of Payments & Cash Management, said: “We are keeping our clients at the centre of everything we do. This means being able to adapt and evolve rapidly alongside their needs – as evidenced here via the expansion of Swift GPI for our retail customers.”   Marianne Demarchi, Chief Executive EMEA, Swift, added: “As part of our strategy for instant and frictionless transactions, we’re working with our community to ensure both individuals, and businesses of all sizes, can benefit directly from our range of solutions, improving their overall experience when sending and receiving an international payment. We’re delighted to be working with UniCredit to bring fast, secure and completely transparent cross-border payments to more people through Swift GPI.”   The carving out of UniCredit’s Group Payments Solutions vertical last year is enabling the bank to focus and invest at scale as it expands its range of value-added services for clients of all sizes.   These decisive actions have had a material impact on the quality of UniCredit’s revenues, with 87% of the bank’s FY23 payments revenues being fee-driven.   UniCredit’s expansion of Swift GPI to retail clients also marks the latest milestone in a journey of innovation in international payments and service excellence.   As of today, the bank can deliver fully automated end to end FX conversion in more than 100 currencies – executing cross-border payments at pre-agreed wholesale spreads.   At the same time, UniCredit is also one of the early adopters of Swift’s Payment Pre-validation solution, which provides an upfront check of recipient data to remove errors before a payment is sent.   Swift is a global member owned cooperative and the world’s leading provider of secure financial messaging services, providing its community with a platform for messaging and standards for communicating, as well as offering products and services to facilitate access and integration, identification, analysis and regulatory compliance.     Milan, 18 April 2024   Contacts Media Relations E mail: mediarelations@unicredit.eu
