For a better and fairer society.
Through Social Impact Banking, we are supporting and financing companies and organisations that benefit society in measurable terms and increase the financial skills of the general population.
Social commitment is a long-standing tradition at Bank Austria. We are now using Social Impact Banking to expand this commitment by deploying our proven skills: allocating special loans, sharing our economic and financial expertise, and our employees’ commitment.
By introducing Social Impact Banking and its 3 pillars, “Impact Financing”, “Microfinance” and “Financial Training”, we are supporting our goal of contributing to a better society.
Our employees’ commitment is crucial to the success of Social Impact Banking. As speakers and mentors, they invest their time and knowledge in assisting companies, organisations and individuals. They increase the awareness of social projects and bring people together so they can exchange their experiences.
Our approach to Social Impact Banking
Social Impact Banking attaches great importance to the ongoing monitoring and measurement of specific results. This means that the projects sponsored are reviewed for sustainable growth.
Social Impact Banking provides loans - impact financing and micro-credits - with the goal of actively supporting social organizations and initiatives with measurable positive social impact. This concept promotes positive social change in our society and is tailored to local needs for each project.
Social Impact Banking underlines UniCredit's strong commitment to providing the best possible development opportunities for people and especially for its customers
