Intesa Sanpaolo named one of the top 20 most sustainable companies
Awards were issued for sustainability at the World Economic Forum last month in Davos.
Corporate Knights reviewed nearly 5,000 companies before determining the top firms. It placed special focus on corporate policy on environmental protection, sustainable development, wages, innovation and transparency, among other factors.
"Belonging to the 20 most sustainable companies in the world confirms the appropriate recognition of our far-reaching commitment to environmental protection, innovation, transparency and personnel groups," Carlo Messina, general director of Intesa Sanpaolo, said. "The concept of sustainable development concerns every activity of our group, social and environmental sustainability and long-term financial stability. We accept this prestigious award, which motivates us to continue along our chosen path and continually improve our performance in sustainable development."
