Certain sectors and activities require a specialised approach to ensure that transactional and related risks are properly addressed. We have developed detailed policies for those sectors relevant to UniCredit that are liable to special environmental and social risks.

 

We have specific sustainability policies in place which contribute to human rights topics such as the Code of Conduct, the Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Global Policy, the Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Global Operational Regulation, the Whistleblowing Policy and the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Countering of Terrorist Financing (CTF) Policy, as well as our Commitment to Human Rights.

 

These policies are inspired by international agreements, guidelines and standards (including the International Finance Corporation Performance Standards, the World Bank Group Environmental, Health and Safety Guidelines and the principles of the UN Global Compact), as well as other practices widely employed by specific industries.
