European Mobility Week: a focus on the commitment of CDP

Mobility is a key area on which to act to regenerate our cities and make them more functional, efficient and sustainable.

For this reason, in these days, we celebrate the European Mobility Week, to focus attention on the issue through events and initiatives held throughout Italy.

For the CDP Group, this is a good opportunity to review the projects put in place for sustainable mobility during the year, in line with the provisions of the new Industrial Plan, which devotes great attention to sustainability issues.

From support for the construction of city infrastructure (such as Florence’s T2 tram line) to financing for businesses, right up to city protocols, a number of projects have been signed and promoted by CDP, with Group companies and other partner institutions.

These include the operation in favour of LeasePlan Italia, a company active in long-term car rental and management of corporate fleets. CDP and Mediobanca have supported the purchase of new fleets of electric and hybrid cars with a low environmental impact through a €45 million loan, encouraging the growth of investment in the green economy.

With the city plans it has signed in recent months, the CDP Group, on the other hand, has set out on a path increasingly oriented at promoting the infrastructural development of cities, including by encouraging the use of sustainable means of transport.

The agreements signed in Turin, Naples and Genoa pay great attention to the growth of the city’s infrastructure: a particularly important sector, in which CDP aims to intervene not only as a lender but also as an advisor, working alongside the local authorities.

Believing in the development of transport infrastructure means, in fact, encouraging the use of forms of sustainable mobility, continuing along a path increasingly oriented to preserve the health of the planet.

The deals signed in recent months confirm the commitment to promote types of behaviour in line with best practices in sustainability through sustainable mobility, energy efficiency and transition and the circular economy, to generate more and more value and benefit for the territories and the community.
