Sustainability in SACE

We work to support all Italian companies and the real economy of the country. We integrate sustainability and corporate strategy into our activities to create value for all our stakeholders. Sustainability has become part of our mission which assigns us the task of supporting and promoting the export and internationalization of Italian companies by supporting the relaunch of the national economy, creating value in support of the entire country system and proactively supporting the European Green New Deal.

SACE's Export Credit activity is regulated by the OECD agreement on export credits (Arrangement on Officially Supported Export Credit), within which there are two sectoral agreements (Sector Understandings) dedicated respectively to the reduction of support for coal (Coal-Fired Electricity Generation Sector Understanding - CFSU) and the promotion of renewable energy, climate change mitigation and adaptation measures and projects in the water sector (Sector Understanding on Export Credits for Renewable Energy, Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation, and Water Projects - CCSU).

Still within the OECD, SACE complies with the following Recommendations of the OECD Council:

  • Recommendation on Common Approaches for Officially Supported Export Credits and Environmental and Social Due Diligence (“Common Approaches”);
    Recommendation on Sustainable Lending Practices and Officially Supported Exports Credits;
  • Recommendation on Bribery and Officially Supported Export Credits.

Through the new operation of the "green guarantees" SACE contributes to the pursuit of the objectives of the European Green Deal, drawing inspiration from the principles of Taxonomy and other European reference regulations in order to identify the operations eligible for this scheme.

As a member of the Berne Union, the international association representing Export Credit and Investment Insurance operators globally, SACE follows the Guiding Principles and the Value Statement.

Furthermore, SACE voluntarily draws inspiration from other guidelines and international agreements, including for example the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, which provide non-binding principles and standards for responsible business conduct.
