UniCredit is the Main Partner of the Finance 4 Social Change project through its Social Impact Banking (SIB) program in line with the Bank’s strong commitment to building a fairer and more inclusive society by promoting initiatives that can have a positive social impact.
SIB is a key pillar of UniCredit’s wider sustainability strategy with a current goal of disbursing 1 billion euros of total social financing by 2023 through its various initiatives across 11 countries, including Austria, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Serbia, and Slovakia.
The Finance 4 Social Change project provides the perfect platform for UniCredit SIB to directly support social entrepreneurship as a driver of social development and progress across the Bank’s different markets.
In addition, UniCredit colleagues will participate in the workshops of the Social Impact Business Plan Competition, offering their expertise and mentorship to the participants. They will also take part in the jury that will select the four winning projects in the pitching sessions in 2021.
