Sustainable development: Unipol Group presents the first Integrated Report
The Group presents its Integrated Report, which for the first time integrates financial data and sustainability information for the purpose of contributing to the achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations.
Among the main results obtained by the Group in terms of sustainability in 2016, the following should be reported: reduction of 4.9% in CO2 emissions compared to the previous year, the Group’s compliance with the PRI code (Principles for Responsible Investment) with 98.6% of its investments in compliance with SRI principles, including over €100m invested in green assets.
The Group has a positive impact with its activities on 9 of the 17 Goals. Its focus and commitment, however, are in particular on Goal 3 – Good Health and Well-being, through a growing synergy with the public health system and the creation of a Territorial Fund of Solidarity, on Goal 11 – Sustainable Cities and Communities, thanks in particular to the call of Culturability for the redevelopment of disused spaces with social value, and on Goal 13 – Climate Action, helping to improve the resilience of small and medium-sized enterprises especially, but also cities understood as related public spaces, through the Life Derris project of which the Unipol Group is the leader.
The Integrated Report of the Unipol Group was prepared on the basis of the principles contained in the International Integrated Reporting Framework, issued by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC)1 in December 2013.
