Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: new Policy approved

CDP strengthens its commitment to valuing the uniqueness of each person

Each person is unique and different, in terms of their stories, experiences, skills and qualities.

CDP has approved the “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Policy”, which strengthens the Group's commitment to building an open, respectful and diverse working environment where everyone can reach their full potential.

The Policy defines the inspiring principles and operating methods to promote the values of diversity, equity and inclusion among internal and external stakeholders, with measures in four macro areas:

People: value the uniqueness of the individual in the areas of selection and recruitment, remuneration, training and development, work-life balance, awareness and sensitivity.

Business: consider diversity as one of the assessment criteria for funding and investment choices, favouring programmes with a positive social impact and a focus on labour inclusion projects.

Suppliers: within the selection process, take into account criteria that favour equal opportunities, both generational and gender based, and promote diversity, equity and inclusion.

Culture and communication: promote and monitor the adequate and constant representation of diversity, particularly gender diversity, in conferences, institutional events and communications.

In line with the 2022-2024 Strategic Plan, the first general Responsible Financing Policy was also approved on 22 June, favouring business activities that generate positive and measurable impacts on society, the economy and the environment.

To ensure full transparency and an ESG-compliant approach, the Policies have been drafted in consultation with associations, sustainability experts and civil society representatives and the impact generated will be subject to periodic monitoring
