UniCredit holds significant responsibilities within a complex value chain and we use different types of capitals -financial, human, social, intellectual and environmental as inputs to contribute to our economy and society at large. These inputs heavily influence our business model and the quality of the products and services that we provide, i.e., our outputs.
We have studied our impact extensively, and we have become ever more aware of the vital role we play in the real economies of the countries where we operate. A responsible approach guides everything we do, from our core banking activities to our corporate citizenship initiatives. These initiatives emphasize financial inclusion and education, complementing our philanthropy in the field of social inclusion. We strongly believe that communities that provide a genuine diversity of opportunities nurture the innovative environment that enables both people and businesses to thrive.
