Sustainability

ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) has become a universally recognized acronym. An approach that considers environmental, social, and governance aspects is essential for any business in this day and age. Being in line with the best ESG performance requires attention, daily efforts, and a commitment to continuous and steady improvement.
This is the starting point for Guber.

Aligning with the best ESG performances in the banking sector requires a continuous commitment.

Banks must adopt a sustainability-oriented corporate culture to enhance their ESG standards. This involves collaboration with stakeholders, the implementation of concrete initiatives, and the measurement and communication of the positive impacts achieved.

As a player in the banking sector, Guber starts from this awareness and embraces the ESG approach as the foundation of its corporate strategy. We are committed to promoting sustainable and socially responsible practices, guided by a strong governance. Through concrete actions and continuous progress, we strive to contribute to the well-being of society, the environment, and future generations, while also ensuring positive outcomes for our clients and investors.

ESG Report 2022

The ESG Report 2022 is a document that builds upon the principles and values deeply rooted in our bank, with the aim of informing all stakeholders, including shareholders, clients, employees, and communities, about initiatives and results that consider not only the economic and financial impacts but especially the environmental and social repercussions stemming from our activities within the context in which we operate.

Transparency and the sharing of information related to our environmental and social policies, actions, and progress are fundamental for building a relationship of trust and collaboration with all our stakeholders.

Our report reflects our commitment to being a responsible bank, capable of balancing economic aspects with social and environmental ones. We aim to be a driver of positive change, encouraging sustainability and awareness among our stakeholders, and thereby contributing to the building of a more sustainable and inclusive future for all.

For our company’s celebration event, we set the goal of minimizing our impact on the environment. Thanks to our collaboration with Up2You, we have been able to fully offset 3300kg of CO2 emissions through the purchase of certified carbon credits.

Social

Fondazione Poliambulanza Partnership

In 2020, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Guber entered into an agreement with the Fondazione Poliambulanza Istituto Ospedaliero Multispecialistico of Brescia to safeguard the health of its employees and collaborators.

Serological tests were conducted in May upon returning from the lockdown, molecular swab tests were conducted in September upon returning from the summer holidays, and the administration of influenza vaccines was also offered in November. Constant monitoring of potentially risky situations is also in place.

Even today, thanks to a special agreement, we continue our commitment to all our employees, who can avail themselves of a free annual check-up.

Guber doesn’t let its guard down.

Illustrazione 3D di una casa per rappresentare il fondo Salvacasa, un progetto di Guber banca che aiuta le persone a vivere in casa nonostante abbiano un debito importante.
Salvacasa Fund

The Salvacasa Fund is an idea that originated a few years ago while observing what began to happen to homeowners facing foreclosure on their primary residences after the 2009 financial crisis: a constant and progressive decline in residential real estate values, especially in peripheral areas, which prevents these debtors from realizing a value that would allow them to recover an amount exceeding their debt, useful for starting anew by renting a new residence.

We have therefore devised a solution, which we named the Salvacasa Fund, defined as a social yield cushion. In essence, it would be a social housing fund that intervenes based on well-defined criteria, taking into consideration the state of need, especially when the property being auctioned is the primary residence.

During the discussions initiated on various fronts, Guber came into contact with a working group that is working on a similar project, called ‘Snowdrop,’ which aims to ‘break through the frost of the social crisis.’
Guber immediately joined this project because… unity is strength.

Guber shares with the Foundation the value of history while also emphasizing the culture of change and transformation, which can only take place via discussion and the exchange of knowledge.
