Sustainability

The IMI Corporate & Investment Banking Division, as part of Intesa Sanpaolo, is more than ever committed to promoting sustainable finance in all the markets in which it is present.

Our strategy is to build, together with companies and the network of our partnerships, a better world for present and future generations. We believe that finance plays a central role, having a significant impact on the entire system.

In a constantly evolving social and economic context, we want to contribute to the necessary transformation to cope with the changes in today's world, offering our clients concrete solutions, built on our experience, expertise and innovation, which are part of our DNA.

The integration of ESG principles in the business strategy is increasingly a goal for many companies, however the transition towards sustainability is implemented in different ways and at different times; it is crucial for companies to be supported by the financial system at every moment of the transition path.

We support our clients in their ESG challenges by helping them to develop and continue a responsible and sustainable business over the years.

Based on our solid experience in Italy and abroad, we propose ourselves as a primary partner with which companies can collaborate, for the structuring of financial deals that promote a more sustainable business model.

Thanks to our professionals, we provide innovative sustainable finance solutions to companies committed to achieving sustainable development goals, transforming them into opportunities and helping the companies to explore new business models. Combining specific knowledge related to ESG topics with sector and product expertise, we can accompany companies throughout the entire process of development and implementation of sustainability initiatives: from the definition of the best financial solutions (in terms of product mix, duration, amortization, guarantees and covenants) to the preparation of legal documentation and the possible involvement of other banks or institutional investors during the syndication phase.
