#ifisgreen

Banca Ifis initiatives in support of the environment and sustainable development.

Sustainable mobility with Ifis Leasing Green

Ifis Leasing Green was the first stage of a project implemented by Banca Ifis to develop products supporting sustainable mobility. How?

  • Different models of electric and plug-in hybrid cars, combined with the flexibility of leasing: making low-emission vehicles available without the need to purchase;
  • Tax advantages: those who choose a green car are offered benefits such as the Ecobonus, exemption from road tax and access to the ZTL areas;
  • A set of solutions designed for those who want to switch to sustainable mobility: from advice to support for recharging;
  • In addition, thanks to the partnerships with Enel X, E-GAP and e-Station, operators specialized in eco-friendly mobility.

More aware use of water

These are the objectives with which we started our partnership with SECLAN to offer customers the rental of Skywell, a new technology that generates drinking water from the atmosphere by collecting moisture present in the air through condensation.

An advanced monitoring system that, in combination with lamps and filters, guarantees the purity of every drop of water and ensures its quality and flavour.

Responsible consumption and reduction of emissions

We have chosen to grow by reducing our environmental impact and we do so starting from the workplace. To reduce emissions, we have chosen clean electricity: thanks to a contract with Enel Energia, since 2020 we have been using energy from 100% renewable sources in all the Group’s offices and branches in Italy.

We are also changing the face of corporate mobility, with a project to install charging stations for electric cars at the Group’s main offices.

 

Our new headquarters in Mestre and Milan Borghetto

Work has begun on the construction of our new headquarters in Mestre. The building will include high energy efficiency systems, with the use of heating and air conditioning systems powered by renewable sources.

Technological innovation and energy efficiency are the constructive principles behind the renovation of the Milanese offices in via Borghetto 5, started recently and which aims for LEED certification, and in via Senato 6 (already completed).

The environmental attention animating renovation projects does not stop at buildings. In the park of Villa Fürstemberg we will be planting plant – based on a specific plan – 290 new trees, more than compensating for felling 259 trees needed for the works at the Mestre site and for the stability checks on the vegetation of the park itself.

Raising the awareness of our people

We started the plastic free project in 2019 to reduce the use of plastic in all our premises by 80%. Each of us received a #ifisgreen thermal bottle so that we no longer have to use plastic bottles.

During 2020 we installed 50 water columns to supply of water directly from the network, and replaced the plastic cups with biodegradable paper ones in all bank offices.
