Equita has recently assisted, with reference to sustainability, Alerion Clean Power in the placement of its Green Bond (€200m, 2019, the first corporate bond issued through the MOT platform of Borsa Italiana) and Cy4Gate in its IPO process (2020, company active in all the areas of the cyber industry; the listing was the largest recent offering on the AIM Italia market).
Over the years, the Group has also developed strong competences on corporates’ sustainability (also via a partnership with ALTIS - Università Cattolica) that led Equita to organise events and publish relevant research papers like:
- “Sustainability: an ad-hoc assessment for SMEs” (2019) – Study on how ESG rating methodologies could improve the rating process for SMEs and encourage corporates to value their strengths from an ESG perspective;
- “ESG: survey on responsible investors’ key issues and needs” (2020) - Research to identify key issues and practical needs of investors interested in investing responsibly.
Equita is today signatory of the United Nations' PRI (Principles for responsible investment).
