What UniCredit says about its journey towards <IR>

This year, the Group has published its third Integrated Report, detailing its performance, its outlook on the current business environment, and the needs of its stakeholders. The report places particular focus on UniCredit’s business model, strategy and deployment of its financial, human and other capitals. UniCredit plans to strengthen its deployment of these resources by focusing on initiatives that create value for both the Group and its stakeholders.

The new reporting approach enables UniCredit to:

  • improve the ways it assesses and manages information and decisions
  • enhance transparency and the quality of information for investors and analysts
  • increase engagement with stakeholders
  • strengthen the Group’s reputation for excellence

UniCredit decided to adopt this new technique to report on its activities because it believes integrated methods represent the most effective strategic and cultural approach to managing organizations. Endeavors such as the 2016 Integrated Report can help accelerate and improve the existing processes that the Group has in place, complementing more traditional forms of measuring performance. Through Integrated Reporting, economic and financial outcomes can be measured together with other key values such as customer satisfaction, employee engagement levels, and impacts on the welfare of the communities in which the Group operates. UniCredit believes this approach is key to understanding and creating sustainable value.
