Financing in Positive Impact Industries

We support economic and social developments by faclitating financing for those activities that can further encourage the development of society.

We want to accelerate the transition to an increasingly sustainable economy.

Itaú aims at continuing increasing financing and services in industries that promote positive impact, such as health, education and renewable energy, helping to accelerate the development of projects and reduce social and environmental risks. Therefore, in our credit offer we assess the social, environmental and climate impacts of the businesses to which financing is granted. We are committed to being the climate transition bank for our clients, driving new models and solutions for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. We have committed to contribute R$400 billion to a sustainable economy by 2025 through financing in positive impact sectors and ESG product development and operations.
