By helping to achieve the goals of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan and the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, CDP is playing a key role in Italy’s development.

We work hard each day to contribute to the country’s sustainable development.
Sustainability, additionality and subsidiarity are the key principles that guide us in:


  Helping Italy make up ground;
  Supporting local areas and enterprises;
  Adopting sector-specific policies for loans with best-in-class ESG criteria;
  Promoting gender inclusion and equality;
  Strengthening internal technical expertise to attract new talent;
  Becoming a centre of excellence and a driver of progress and Italian competitiveness.

The Group strategy: challenges, key pillars and action areas

We believe there are four great challenges facing Italy: climate change, inclusive and sustainable growth, innovation and digitalisation, and support for value chains. We established our Group's strategy in response to these.

To guide our operations more efficiently, we have translated these four challenges into ten action areas and three "transformative" pillars, which cut across everything we do.

Starting from the 10 action areas, we have developed 10 sectoral strategic guidelines for assessing the degree of strategic importance of the initiatives that we implement. They analyse the gaps in the country, identify areas for action and define the main performance indicators for project monitoring and ex-post impact assessment.
