UNICREDIT WILL ATTEND EARTH HOUR, A GLOBAL WWF EVENT AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE

25.03.2011

In accordance with its commitment to the field of sustainable development, UniCredit will participate, on March 26th, in the global mobilization event of the association by switching off the light in some of its buildings for an hour

UniCredit will attend again this year “Earth Hour”, a global event of the WWF which will be held on March 26th with the objective of generating awareness amongst individuals, institutions and companies on the problem of climate change.

Forty seven UniCredit representative buildings in Europe will switch off their lights for 60 minutes, starting at 8.30 pm local time, in order to symbolically bear witness to the commitment of the Group in combating climate change and to highlight the importance of reducing greenhouse gasses emissions. UniCredit also promoted the Earth Hour message through its internal communication channels by calling over 161,000 employees to participate in the event.

This is one of the initiatives promoted in recent years in the environmental field, with activities ranging from measures for energy efficiency, the utilization of renewable energy sources within headquarters and branch offices, and the inventorying of Group emissions. In accordance with this policy, UniCredit has selected the WWF in order to generate “symbolic visibility” of its awareness of the responsibility which financial groups have with respect to major environmental themes and sustainable development.

“UniCredit is increasingly convinced of the strategic importance of combining economic growth with the rational use of natural resources", declared Paolo Fiorentino, UniCredit Chief Operating Officer. “Our relationship with WWF has been ongoing for more than two years and during this period we have worked to integrate sustainability within our business. We have jointly worked to create the first inventory of our Group’s greenhouse gas emissions, with the objective of reducing them by 15% in 2012 and 30% in 2020".

Earth Hour, a global mobilization event against climate change organized by the WWF on Saturday March 26th, will cover 24 time zones (8.30 pm in Italy) with the lights of cities, symbolic monuments, institutions, companies, and houses across the world turned off. The objective for this year is to go “beyond the hour”, committing citizens across the world to adopt responsible energy behaviors during day to day life in order to protect the planet against climate change.

NOTE

Ukrsotsbank is one of the largest universal banks of Ukraine, operating in the local market since 1990. The bank offers full range of services to individuals and corporate clients.

The renovated Ukrsotsbank emerged on 31 October 2016 as a result of strategic deal whereby 99.9% of Ukrsotsbank shares have been transferred from UniCredit Group to ABH Holdings S.A. (АВНН) in exchange for a minority 9.9% stake in ABHH. Thus, the bank has combined 26-year-old traditions of Ukrsotsbank’s client-centric attitude, European quality of service inherent to UniCredit, as well as international banking expertise of ABHH in a number of European countries including CIS. Thanks to the successful synthesis and synergy of the two assets of ABHH in Ukraine, Ukrsotsbank and Alfa-Bank, the banking market of Ukraine will see the rise of a new stronger financial institution. This, in turn, will spur up technological advance, increase efficiency, improve quality of service for the clients, reduce cost of banking services whereas their range will inevitably expand.

The extensive retail network of Ukrsotsbank consists of 237 branches, its headcount reaching nearly 5 thousand employees.
