Financing the Future

Financing the Future, the report of the Italian Dialogue on Sustainable Finance was presented in Rome on 6 February 2017. The report is the result of the work promoted by UNEP and the Ministry of the Environment together with financial companies and associations.

Generali contributed to the work group by presenting experiences and development perspectives on insurance and asset management.
