The management of purchases generates a substantial part of a large financial institution’s footprint on the environment and society.
For this reason, Intesa Sanpaolo, being aware that the influence it has on its goods and services suppliers can benefit all players involved, favours an approach based on fostering and disseminating social and environmental responsibility best practices.
These commitments, together with a focus on eliminating waste and conservative buying decisions, have represented the backbone of the Group’s procurement policy.
In practice, the principles of transparency and fairness have been applied to our procurement activities, as stated in our Code of Ethics, both during the process of selecting suppliers and in the purchasing procedures.
Even at the Group International Subsidiary Banks, a supply management strategy, developed centrally by the International Subsidiary Banks Division, is gradually being implemented, which will create a template, guidelines and a set of indicators to allow each bank to include criteria of quality and of social and environmental responsibility in their procurement processes.
