NATIXIS CORPORATE & INVESTMENT BANKING Milan is the Italian branch of the second French banking group (Groupe BPCE). We care about the issues of Environment & Social Responsability and in our 2022-2024 strategic plan we are committed to the environment and we intend to neutralize our CO2 and H20 footprint with various initiatives.
Water is life, yet still today one in three children in the world does not have access to safe water to drink or to water to take care of their personal hygiene. This means dealing with thirst but also with diseases that arise from contact with contaminated water.
The collaboration between the Italian branch and WAMI has the intent of offset the consumption of Milan employees through the project in Norwood, Sri Lanka, contributing to the achievement of some fundamental SDGs of the United Nations 2030 Agenda. In this way, Natixis CIB Milano fights inequalities by guaranteeing equitable and sustainable access to safe and drinkable water, with particular attention to the needs of women, girls and people in a state of vulnerability. Children can go to school, instead of walking long paths in search of water, and the consumption of CO2 caused by the cutting down of trees to light the fire used for boiling is reduced.
