Our ESG Objectives

Our commitment

Sustainability is built into every aspect of illimity’s activities and is an essential component of our identity. We want to drive value with purpose, by creating a lasting and sustainable benefit for all our stakeholders. Through our activities we support high-potential SMEs with their growth projects or recovery plans, fostering the sustainable and digital transition of the Italian businesses.

With the presentation of the Strategic Plan 2021-25, we communicated ambitious environmental, social and governance (ESG) sustainability targets. The Plan reaffirms the Group’s commitment to ESG issues, encouraging full integration of sustainability in the organisation and business activities.
