Crédit Agricole Italia confirms support for the real economy and the environment
New leasing operations and green loans are coming
Crédit Agricole Leasing Italia confirms itself alongside the Italian entrepreneurial fabric and its financing needs with new leasing operations. In the last year, the new leasing operations have had an amount up in 2020 by approximately 6%, in contrast to the Italian market, which recorded overall volumes in contraction of -18% compared to 2019. The green vocation of Crédit Agricole Leasing Italia is also confirmed by the dedicated initiatives, as part of the Ca Greenlease project, in favor of road hauliers (for the replacement of the vehicles in circulation with new vehicles with a lower environmental impact), professionals and entrepreneurs (for the purchase of low-emission cars) and to companies that intend to produce electricity for self-consumption thanks to photovoltaic systems.
Crédit Agricole Leasing Italia's attention to environmental sustainability is part of the broad corporate social responsibility policy. In recent weeks, the Group has launched the first Italian issue of guaranteed bank bonds (Obg) in "Green" format, in line with its Green finance objectives, aimed at financing or refinancing a pool of residential mortgage loans selected with sustainability criteria and disbursed for the purchase of energy-efficient properties.
The recent issue of Capital Protected Impact Green Certificates also goes in the same direction: a new green investment solution, whose funds, raised by Crédit Agricole Cib, will be assigned to the bank's green loan portfolio and whose performance is indexed to the MSCI Europe Select Green Index, composed of the 50 best European companies offering products and services with a positive environmental impact. "Crédit Agricole, also known as the green bank, is concretely committed to building an Italian way towards a sustainable economy and the importance of ESG issues is shared responsibly by all Group entities", explains a press release.
