With the aim of promoting the sustainability of the sector maritime, the insurance-financial company SACE of the Cassa Depositi e Prestiti group, which is controlled by the Ministry of Economy and Finance, has joined the Poseidon Principles, which represent the first agreement in the world between financial institutions, aimed at the maritime sector, on the subject of climate alignment. In particular, the Poseidon Principles promote the monitoring and publication of information on the alignment of the institutions' ship portfolio signatories to the emission reduction targets set by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), including, the 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 compared to 2008 levels of ships over 5,000 tonnes of gross tonnage.

With the adhesion, SACE undertakes to monitor gas emissions greenhouse of its portfolio in the naval sector, particularly relevant in the activity carried out by the company led by Pierfrancesco Latini in the export sector, in order to verify its compliance with the decarbonisation targets set by the IMO.

We carry on with great commitment and determination the new mandate to support the ecological transition of the country, aware the importance of our role in the Green New Deal Italian. A role that takes on even greater relevance central, in consideration of the resources allocated by the Plan National Recovery and Resilience to the green mission, where SACE's intervention in support of projects and investments will be a potential driving force for public resources and for those mobilised by the banking and insurance system'.
