Intesa Sanpaolo winner BAI Global Innovation 2017

Intesa Sanpaolo won the 2017 BAI Global Innovation Award for the Innovation in Human Capital category with TimeRepublik, a sharing economy project created for the Group’s employees.
The prize was awarded for the Bank’s ability to leverage on exponential trends such as the sharing economy, and alternative currencies such as time, creating a new concept of company community. The project was conceived by Intesa Sanpaolo’s Innovation Center, which scouted for the TimeRepublik startup, and was created together with the Intesa Sanpaolo Employees’ Association.



For the seventh consecutive year Intesa Sanpaolo has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index Europe and the Dow Jones Sustainability Index World financial indices, which are among the most important global and European stock market indices for assessing corporate social responsibility. Scoring 84 out of 100 points, against a financial sector average of 58, Intesa Sanpaolo entered the two indices as the only Italian bank.

“Being included once again in this index, one of the most authoritative and selective indices, recognises our commitment to growth that is responsible and caring towards people, the communities and the environment. These are the elements that inspire our strategic decisions as well as our daily operations”, underlines Carlo Messina, Intesa Sanpaolo Managing Director and CEO.

With regard to the financial sector, 28 banks were included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index World, and 10 in the Europe index in 2017.


Intesa Sanpaolo and ISSNAF are pushing for a rethink of global economy according to Circular Economy principles

Intesa Sanpaolo and ISSNAF, The Italian Scientists and Scholars in North America Foundation, are co-promoters of the “Award for Innovation & Circular Economy”, a call dedicated to all Italian researchers currently working in the United States and Canada to submit concrete scalable solutions aimed at shaping the prosperity of the 21st century. The Award seeks to bolster the best innovative ideas and projects involving the regenerative and restorative principles behind the Circular Economy, as identified by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the most influential global player in this field. In particular, it aims at investigating how, through a change in perspective, we can re-design the way our economy works designing products that can be “made to be made again” and powering the system with renewable energy. Participants were invited to demonstrate efforts and competencies in circular design to facilitate product reuse and recycling in areas such as material selection, standardized components, designed-to-last products and separation or reuse of products and materials. Finalists presented their ideas at the Intesa Sanpaolo Hub in New York, on June 20th, and the jury awarded Giulia Plotti with a certificate and a $3,000 cash prize, thanks to an innovative project “Tracy”: the young engineer created an app that works as a “track and recycling coach”. Tracy’s main features aim to enable a recycling chain with the possibility for users to check their results and become actors of the circular economy; moreover, through a gamification process, the app can measure and inform citizens of their results and reward them for their efforts.
