Poste Italiane is aware of the relevance of the Company in terms of capillarity within the territory in which it operates. Therefore, the Group aims to reduce its environmental impact and contribute to the low-carbon transition of the country's economy.
Considering the relevance of identifying the potential economic impacts of climate change risks, the Group takes a responsible approach in conducting its activities. This commitment is in line with the new edition of the "Global Risks Report" published by the World Economic Forum in January 2023. The paper tracks perceptions of global risks among industry experts and world leaders at various levels, examining them in five categories: economic, environmental, geopolitical, social and technological. The report reveals that the top three global risks to be addressed over the next decade are all environmental. To the side is the ranking of the "5 Top Global Risks" identified in the report.
Poste Italiane, in accordance with the main regulatory trends and in response to the growing requests from the financial community and the main stakeholders, reports information regarding climate change based on the areas defined by the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD): Governance, Strategy, Risk Management, Metrics and Objectives. The TCFD, established in 2015 by the Financial Stability Board (FSB), published a set of recommendations to assist companies in reporting on the risks and opportunities that climate change may pose to corporate performance, in a transparent and comprehensive manner.
