Milan – 5 September 2022 – The sixth edition of the Italian Sustainability Week of Borsa Italiana, part of the Euronext Group, kicks off today and runs until 9 September.

The event includes an agenda of virtual public meetings with over 80 speakers who will explore ESG topics during the five-day conference. Space will also be given to experiences of 'collective engagement' to support the growth of sustainable finance in Italy. The webinars and roundtables, organised by Borsa Italiana in collaboration with Sustainable Finance Partners, are public and accessible from Borsa Italiana’s website. (See the Italian Sustainability Week 2022 programme).

The Italian companies taking part in Sustainability Week will meet investors, national and international analysts in over 800 meetings to discuss their strategic vision on sustainable growth, financing instruments and green investment plans. Specifically, 56 listed companies, three unlisted companies and the Ministry of Economy and Finance will hold virtual meetings with 177 investors from 15 countries and three continents, representing 95 domestic and international investment houses. More than 230 meetings with financial analysts are also on the agenda.

The 56 listed companies have an aggregated capitalisation of more than €392 billion (as of end of July 2022) and represent around 58% of the entire capitalisation of the Italian equity markets. The companies also include 21 issuers of ESG bonds listed on the bond markets of Borsa Italiana/Euronext.

Eleven sectors are represented, demonstrating how sustainability issues are increasingly transversal and encompass the entire productive and financial ecosystem of the country.

A special edition of “Italian Infrastructure Day” will also be held on 8 September at Palazzo Mezzanotte, where a selection of listed and unlisted companies from the infrastructure and energy sector will meet national and international investors and analysts in over 360 meetings to discuss future plans and prospects for the infrastructure and energy sector.

These are currently key for companies and public and private players that we have involved in the opening session dedicated to NRRP.
