During the 8th edition of the Italian SRI Week last November, the Italian Sustainable Investment Forum (ItaSIF) published three reports on sustainable finance in Italy.

The studies provide insights on the action of the European Union for greening finance, the correlation between climate change and financial choices of savers, and the Sustainable and Responsible Investment (SRI) policies of pension plans.

  • “The European Union and Sustainable Finance: impacts and perspectives on the Italian market” is a practical guide through the main SRI policies and regulations launched by the EU Commission and their potential implications for the Italian market. Food for thought on future developments of the reform process is also included.
    The full handbook is available in Italian (here) and in English (here)
  • To what extent are Italian savers aware of the relevance of climate in their financial choices? Are they inclined to SRI? To find answers to these questions ItaSIF and BVA Doxa conducted a survey among retail investors. It came out that most of Italian savers have embraced environmentally friendly practices in their daily life, and are somewhat sensitive to environmental issues in finance. There is room for improvement on information about SRI.
    The full report in Italian and an English version of the Executive Summary are available here.
  • The fifth edition of ItaSIF’s survey on SRI policies of pension plans shows a growing interest of Italian pension plans for SRI: the response rate was 78%; 47% of respondents adopt a sustainable investment strategy and the majority of respondents that do not integrate ESG criteria are now considering to do so. The research was conducted in collaboration with Mefop and MondoInstitutional.
    The full report in Italian and an English version of the Executive Summary are available here.
