Standard Ethics (SE) is one of the best known European ESG rating companies and has recently confirmed UniCredit's "EE+"* rating. UniCredit is part of the SE Italian Index, SE Italian Banks Index, SE European Banks Index, SE European 100 Index and the SE European Best in Class Index.
UniCredit has also been highlighted for European excellence on sustainability. This is the first time sustainability has been analysed as a stand-alone strategic factor separate from other ethical and social responsibility topics. All areas of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) analysed within this framework are aligned to the voluntary recommendations from the UN, OECD and the European Union.
* Ratings are based on a scale comprising 9 letter grades from F (lowest level) to EEE (highest level).
