UniCredit Joins Earth Hour 2017 in 12 Countries

On March 25, UniCredit will turn off the lights in more than 70 of its buildings in 12 different European countries for Earth Hour, marking the Group's tenth consecutive year of participation in WWF's global initiative aimed at making people more aware of the climate change which poses as a serious threat to our planet.


UniCredit's support for the campaign emphasizes the Group's steady efforts over the years to address conservation of the environment and support sustainable development. As part of these efforts, the group is committed to reducing its operational emissions since 2009. Having already reached 2020 target -30%, UniCredit is now committed to achieve new ambitious ones: -60% by 2020 and -80% by 2030.


This year, the lights in UniCredit's most prominent buildings will be turned off for one hour in 12 countries: Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Germany, Italy, Poland, Romania, Russia and Slovakia.


UniCredit Tower will also be taking part in this year's Earth Hour. The bank's headquarters in Milan has received a LEED Gold certification from the US Green Building Council for its scrupulous attention to energy savings in construction and design.
