Our Sustainable value creation
Value creation for UniCredit means more than just generating financial value. It also means adding sustainable value in terms of human capital, society and the environment over time by listening to and responding to the real needs of our customers and our stakeholders. This is what we mean by Banking that matters. To achieve sustainability, we interact with five capitals: financial, human, social and relationship, natural and intellectual.
Our bank interacts with the external environment through rules and Governance. Our Business Model is fueled by the five Capitals, and combines traditional banking activity with corporate citizenship and philanthropy. The interaction between UniCredit and the external environment relies on stakeholder engagement, which is crucial for discerning the topics most important to our stakeholders. Stakeholder listening enables us to detect risks, opportunities and changes in the external environment. We address these issues when we define our strategy.
This process is represented in the materiality matrix.
As a result of our approach and by means of our business model, we also contribute to achieving the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We monitor our progress towards SDGs via measurable KPIs resulting from the management of material topics and related risks and opportunities.
