UniCredit joins UN-Convened Net-Zero Banking Alliance
PRESS RELEASE
20 October 2021 - h 07:30

In line with its commitment to a climate-positive future, UniCredit joins the Net-Zero Banking Alliance (NZBA), an industry-led, UN-convened alliance of banks worldwide, committed to aligning their lending and investment portfolios with net-zero emissions by 2050 or sooner, in line with the most ambitious targets set by the Paris Climate Agreement.

 

Representing more than a third of global banking assets, with over 76 members from 35 countries and $54 trillion in total assets, the Alliance is a critical step in the mobilisation of the financial sector for climate. It recognises the vital role of banks in supporting the global transition of the real economy to net-zero emissions, encompassing both operational and attributable emissions, including Scope 3 emissions.

 

Alliance members commit to:

 

o   Set scenario-based interim targets for 2030 or sooner for priority sectors

o   Prioritise areas of most significant impact, i.e. the most greenhouse gas-intensive and emitting sectors

o   Annually publish emissions and emissions intensity

o   Take into account the best available scientific knowledge

o   Set first target(s) within 18 months of signing and report annually thereafter

o   Disclose progress against a board-level reviewed transition strategy

 

The NZBA is convened by the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative and is the banking element of the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero, chaired by Mark Carney, UN Special Envoy on Climate Action and Finance ahead of COP 26.

 

UniCredit is proud to join leading peers from the banking industry in these collective efforts to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. We look forward to engaging with our clients to support them in their transition plans and accelerate action on climate. Further details on our ESG strategy will be disclosed at our forthcoming investor day as part of the new business plan for the Group.

 

Andrea Orcel, CEO of UniCredit, commented: “UniCredit is proud to have signed up to the Net-Zero Banking Alliance and is committing to aligning our lending and investment portfolios with net-zero emissions by 2050. This is an important moment in our journey to a more sustainable future and is a necessary action to focus attention and ultimately make significant progress in this area.

 

“We exist to support our clients through any challenges they face and this includes helping industries adapt to a changing world. In the short-term, this will mean working with companies who may only be at the start of their path to sustainability. We will do so if – and only if – we believe this path is both realistic and ultimately beneficial for all stakeholders, including the environment. To do otherwise would be irresponsible and would work against the customers and clients we serve and our commitment to empowering societies across Europe.

 

“We are focused on delivering a positive and sustainable transition to green energy which does as little harm to both the planet and its people as possible. Our signing of the Net-Zero Banking Alliance is a commitment to helping society make this change. It will not be an overnight process, but I believe 2050 is the right target for our industry to commit to and I am looking forward to the changes that will come.”

It recognises the vital role of banks in supporting the global transition of the real economy to net-zero emissions.

UniCredit’s U-City wins gold at the Efma-Accenture Banking Innovation Awards 2021
PRESS RELEASE
22 November 2021
  UniCredit's U-City won the gold medal in the Future Workforce category at the eighth edition of the Efma-Accenture Banking Innovation Awards 2021 - innovationinbanking.efma.com. The digital gamification initiative was highlighted for improving employee knowledge of digital products and services, enabling them to become digital ambassadors for their customers. The virtual award ceremony took place on Thursday 18 November.   This prestigious award identifies and rewards the best banking innovations and saw a record number of entries this year – more than 800 from nearly 300 institutions in 73 countries. Winners in each of the eight categories were chosen by a jury composed of representatives from the world's leading financial institutions, based on three criteria: originality; strategic ability to generate long-term competitive advantage and return on investment; and adaptability for use in other markets and countries.   U-City is UniCredit's first online learning game to support the digital transformation of businesses. It is aimed at enhancing employee knowledge of the bank's digital services through gamification. The objective of the game is to transform an imaginary city into a futuristic metropolis where respect for the environment and the adoption of new technologies are key to making U-City as digital and sustainable as possible to win the game.   The project is the result of collaboration between various areas in the bank such as business, communication and training to design a digital concept that enables UniCredit colleagues to learn in an innovative and engaging way while also accelerating digital transformation and supporting business results. For example, employee digital adoption has risen from 77% to 93% and digital transactions have increased by 53% year-on-year.   The U-City project was launched in March 2021 and completed in July of the same year. Participation was significant: in 100 days of play, over 2,500 employees generated more than 150,000 challenges and earned over 3 billion experience points, 5,000 gadgets and various other prizes. This response exceeds some of the best industry benchmarks – actively involving 10% of the bank’s employees. U-City is also part of the BEST4Digital project, dedicated to the employees of UniCredit's Italian network.   "We are proud to have won this prestigious award for the first time thanks to the U-City project, UniCredit's first learning game, born out of collaboration across the bank between business, communication and training colleagues, who pooled their skills, innovative ideas, vision and determination, and worked as a team to make this project happen” - commented Ilaria Dalla Riva, Head of People & Culture Italy at UniCredit. “Digital transformation remains a strategic objective for UniCredit. Harnessing the power of digitalisation and applying it across the board to strategies, processes and services, to support our people and our customers, is essential for us,” she concluded.     Milan, 22 November 2021   Enquiries: e-mail: mediarelations@unicredit.eu
