Enviromentalprotection initiatives.

To ensure a future for our planet we must change our present.

At the BPER Group, we do this by reducing consumption, purchasing products with environmental quality labels, managing resources better and supporting projects that safeguard the environment.

Sustainability Projects

In 2022, we pursued internal awareness raising on sustainability issues. We entrusted our ESG Strategy function with
the responsibility of managing Energy and Mobility Management activities. Below are the concrete projects that involved people:

Slide 1

BPER Bank Plastic Free

To reduce plastic consumption, in and out of the workplace, we provided more than 3 thousand employees with a branded water bottle. Each employee consumes about 220 half-liter plastic bottles each year. Since 2020, almost 20,000 water bottles have been distributed, which, filled from home, help make our environment increasingly sustainable and plastic-free.

Let's knock it off

To raise awareness of ESG issues among our people, we created a communication campaign that saw the birth of 11 Sustainability Pills for which we initiated or carried out concrete actions. Each pill represents one of the Agenda 2030 Goals and contains practical suggestions and contests to stimulate virtuous actions, as well as links and insights to the Sustainability Report .

Let's Stop Polluting!

An initiative in collaboration with Wecity, in which we involved about 500 employees over three months. All those who signed up cycled, walked or scootered to their respective offices, thereby reducing emissions caused by home-to-work commutes by 12 tons of CO2.

Let's stop wasting paper!

With the goal of reducing paper consumption by avoiding printed documents, we have involved more than 1,200 branches (in the first edition, in 2022) that have implemented behaviors aimed at paper dematerialization, resulting in savings of 8,222,883 sheets and 28.94 tons of CO2.

Slide 5

Energy Saving Vademecum. 

To give substance to the sustainability pills, we have produced a document, to promote virtuous behaviors and change bad habits and actions, without giving up comfort and services, for example by optimizing the use of air conditioning and lighting devices and systems.  

The management of climate and environmental risks and opportunities. 

Regarding the assessment of environmental and climate risks with financial impact, we did a physical risk, transition risk, and carbon footprint assessment of the Bank's own credit (Corporate) and investment portfolios. These studies allow us to assess the potential business implications of climate and environmental risks, and to inform stakeholders on how the organization is positioning itself in light of these risks.
