We are one of the leading financial institutions in sustainable finance having concluded the first Sustainability-linked loan in the energy sector in 2018.


The IMI Corporate & Investment Banking Division is a lead arranger, structurer and distributor of ESG loans, both Sustainability-linked and Green loans. Our ESG loans support companies in different sectors, fields and nations.

Sustainability-linked loans & Green loans are financial solutions that incentivize sustainability-oriented businesses and are designed to encourage companies' commitment to achieve sustainability goals (Sustainability-linked loans) or to finance green projects (Green loans).

  • Sustainability-linked loans are credit lines, guarantee lines or letters of credit which, thanks to a discount/bonus mechanism, that act as an incentive for companies to set and achieve their sustainability goals. Companies are also encouraged to disclose the results achieved in their financial statements and/or in the Non-Financial Statement. Sustainability-linked loans can be used for different purposes, with no specific use of proceeds.

  • Green loans are those solutions that only finance or refinance, fully or partially, new and/or existing eligible Green projects. These solutions allow companies to finance projects that have a significant environmental and social impact (including Research and Development), which must be appropriately described in the related supporting documents.
