UniCredit claims the larger record of ecological management and audit system (EMAS) in the world in terms of
the number of offices and branches.
UniCredit SpA has obtained Eco-Management and Audit Scheme Certification (EMAS) for the fourth time in a row for all of its activities in Italy, with more than 2,500 sites including offices and branches included in the certification.
EMAS registration is a voluntary tool, created by the European Commission, which certifies the commitment of companies and public bodies to set up an environmental management system identify the significant aspects of their activities in this area, gradually reduce their impact and improve their environmental performance.
The Environmental management system is the frame in which our environmental protection plans converge, taking into account the two direct factors, i.e. the consumption of energy and raw materials such as paper, waste production and management, climate-modifying emissions and indirect factors, such as the provision of credit and procurement policies.
After verification by an accredited external party, EMAS certification attests to the validity and effectiveness of UniCredit Environmental Management System and the objectives achieved, recognizing the commitment of the organization and all its colleagues to reduce the negative environmental impacts of our activities.
Our sustainability has deep roots, if we consider that the first EMAS certification dates back to 2002 and only applied to a small number of sites.
This important certification, obtained thanks to the involvement of thousands of colleagues, is a confirmation of the quality of our commitment and an exceptional testimony to the contribution of each of us to the achievement of our results.
In addition to EMAS certification in Italy, the Group also holds ISO 14001 environmental management system certification for Bank Austria and UniCredit Bank Czech Republic and Slovakia.
