Italian SMEs, polycrisis, and sustainable finance
The Italian Sustainable Investment Forum (ItaSIF) has conducted research since 2020 to analyze the inclusion of ESG themes in the business strategies of Italian SMEs and to further investigate their relationship with sustainable finance. In 2023, the survey was focused on the concept of “polycrisis” (i.e., the coexistence of crises of different nature and origin, e.g., economic, geopolitical, energy, climate crisis, etc.) and on the perception of companies regarding the role of sustainability and sustainable finance in this context.
The complete research in Italian is available here.
