Each day, we face decision-making paradoxes. Conflicting questions such as, "do we invest in efficiency or innovation?" or "do we want things to change or stay the same?" perpetually evade our business agendas. These situations are magnetic poles that pull us towards one idea and not the other, forcing us to make trade-offs. However, a paradox mindset removes this "either-or" barrier with a "both-and" mentality. Here are three ways to adopt this approach.

UniCredit Bank Banja Luka helped a long-term client, „TAT-COM Srbac“ to overcome a difficult situation during the pandemic, by granting him a loan through the Guarantee Fund. The company used it to continue business operations, and benefitted from a particularly good deal as the funds were provided with minimal collateral. Listen to Dragan's story.

Green finance has been growing with a focus on harvesting activities that are already green, such as wind farms and photovoltaic parks. To shift towards the Paris Agreement trajectory, the industry needs to finance the green transformation of the high-carbon sectors, such as steel, aluminum, cement, and natural gas.

UniCredit Social Impact Banking advances social impact finance measurement standards with a dedicated system
PRESS RELEASE
13 May 2021 h 11:00
The measurement & evaluation system has been developed with the think tank Human Foundation, to drive greater outcomes of social impact finance projects     In line with the mission of UniCredit’s Social Impact Banking (SIB) initiative, to concretely contribute to building a fairer and more inclusive society, SIB has developed a new measurement & evaluation (M&E) system together with the think tank Human Foundation, focused on advancing social impact finance measurement standards and maximising the related direct and indirect social outcomes.   The dedicated M&E system allows UniCredit SIB to consistently monitor and evaluate its social impact finance activities across all 11 Group markets where SIB is active: Austria, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Serbia and Slovakia.   The aim is to track performance and the impact generated by comparing expected and achieved results on a continued basis through a tailored framework that also accounts for the characteristics of the different beneficiaries of specific projects. The Human Foundation think tank was chosen as a partner for the development of the M&E system thanks to their work in promoting innovative solutions to societal issues.   Laura Penna, Head of Group Social Impact Banking at UniCredit, commented: “At UniCredit, ESG is part of our DNA and this includes a strong social commitment in all our markets. Our Social Impact Banking programme helps us drive tangible positive social change in our communities and in order to ensure we are always growing our impact and making a real difference, we need to be able to track and measure social impact finance outcomes in a concrete and uniform way. This new measurement & evaluation system has been designed to help us do this effectively as well as make an important contribution for increased transparency and common standards in the wider social impact finance sector.”   The purpose of social impact finance is to create tangible positive social benefits through the financing of projects and initiatives that have the potential to deliver such outcomes. The sector has significantly grown worldwide in recent years [1] and we expect this trend to accelerate driven by the effects of the Covid-19 crisis.   This context increases the need for clear and common measurement methods to ensure the credibility of impact finance activities and avoid the risk of “impact washing”[2]. It is also important for the beneficiaries of impact finance programmes to guarantee a level playing field, agreement on specific KPIs for each project and increase transparency in the selection process.   UniCredit’s social impact finance offer is aimed at supporting social innovation as a driver of change through loans at advantageous conditions as well as providing financial training and access to relevant partnerships and networks. A “pay for success” mechanism is integral to the offer to allow for additional economic benefits to the project / initiative based on the successful achievement of agreed social impact goals. In addition, UniCredit’s Social Impact Banking programme is also committed to inclusive finance, supporting entrepreneurs and small businesses through microcredit and to financial education to encourage greater financial knowledge and social inclusion that can empower active citizenship.   UniCredit’s Social Impact Banking has also recently been recognised by the European Venture Philanthropy Association (EVPA) with their Data Transparency Label 2021 for the continued commitment to data transparency regarding social impact finance.   To find more information on the M&E system please refer to the SIB Position Paper here.   For more information on UniCredit Social Impact Banking, please see here.   Milan, 13 May 2021     Notes:   [1] Total impact investing market value was estimated at USD 502 billion as of end of 2018 (GIIN, 2019). [2] “Impact washing” refers to the process of any bank, firm or fund using the social / environmental impact narrative for reputational and market purposes, but not contributing to the achievement of any tangible positive impact (IDS, 2019).     Enquiries: mediarelations@unicredit.eu

PRESS RELEASE
12 May 2021 h 08:10
UniCredit Group today announces a new organisational structure and a new management team to drive the business effectively and deliver its new strategic plan during H2 2021.   This new structure creates a simplified organisation that will enable greater accountability across all businesses and areas.  It ensures our clients remain at the heart of everything that we do, further integrates technology and digitalisation as a key driver of our future success and provides clarity on key roles and responsibilities. In summary, with today’s announcement UniCredit:   Creates a new Group Executive Committee (‘GEC’) of fifteen people to replace the former Executive Management Committee of twenty-seven, increasing ownership and accountability. Removes a layer of management, minimising co-Heads of businesses and functions and creates a more cohesive partnership Empowers country CEOs to better manage their geographies in delivering best practice and synergies across all business lines. Italy, Germany, Central Europe and Eastern Europe will now form the key geographic reporting lines for the Group. Positions Italy as a standalone geography, reflecting the critical importance of this country to our Group, honouring the roots, essence and spirit that underscore the origins of UniCredit. Puts in place a transversal matrix, positioning Corporate and Investment Banking across all geographies to offer our clients a seamless suite of products and services that serve different local demands. Creates a new Digital division that will elevate technology, digitalisation and data to the new GEC, ensuring it will be embedded in every strategic deliverable underscoring the critical importance of this area to the future of the business. Launches a widespread simplification exercise across the organisation, starting with the SpA, reducing existing committees from 44 to a maximum of 15-20. Creates a new People & Culture division to expand the remit of the former Human Capital function, reflecting the importance of our people as carriers of our new culture and ensuring that the Group can attract, hire and retain best-in-class talent for the long-term benefit of UniCredit and its clients. Creates a CEO office to include Strategy & Optimisation, and the newly created function of Stakeholder Engagement. Both functions will be part of the GEC.   Andrea Orcel, CEO of UniCredit, commented:   “When I began as CEO of UniCredit, I promised that one of my first priorities would be to reduce complexity and simplify UniCredit’s structure. Today, you can see the first steps in delivering on that promise: streamlining our business, clarifying key roles, and improving accountability so that we can better deliver for all our stakeholders. I also said that we would increase the pace of digitalisation so that technology and data is firmly embedded in every decision we take, and we are today announcing a new Digital division to further integrate it as a core part of our DNA. As a business it is important that we recognise our origins and the cultural roots that have shaped us, which is why we are positioning Italy as a standalone geography, alongside Germany, Central Europe and Eastern Europe. I am keenly aware that our people will be the driving force of UniCredit’s success, and today we are also announcing an expanded People & Culture function that will ensure that we attract, hire, and retain the best people to transform the Bank. This is the first step in an ambitious programme to unlock UniCredit’s full potential.
