Poste Italiane's Sustainability Path

In the current context, the creation of value is increasingly based on intangible capital; therefore, Poste Italiane considers reputation to be a fundamental asset capable of guiding the decisions of its stakeholders. A good corporate reputation not only reinforces trust in the Company but also increases its competitiveness. To this end, the Group has decided to follow up on its commitment by confirming its traditional vocation of being close to the territory and the community, even more so at a difficult time similar to the current national and international context.
Thanks to the considerable efforts made by Poste Italiane and the effectiveness of the strategic choices made, aimed at consolidating the Group’s image and reputation, the Company has won numerous awards and recognitions in recent years.
