For a second consecutive year, 800 UniCredit employees in Bulgaria and their families volunteered across the country on Green Day 2023, which took place within the framework of the Bank's National Volunteer Program. The large-scale initiative was held in 11 different locations, such as Sofia Zoo, Vitosha Nature Park and 9 other locations around the country. The Green Day was held with the support of the Biodiversity Foundation, UniCredit partners for Bulgaria.

On Saturday, 13th May, bank employees, together with their friends and families, repaired and improved tourist infrastructure, planted new plants, cleaned and painted facilities. “I am happy that for another year our colleagues have participated in volunteer work not only to refine together the environment in which we live but also to show once again with a personal example that sustainable change is a matter of choice and action”, commented Tzvetanka Mintcheva, CEO of UniCredit Bulbank and a volunteer in the initiative.

"The preserved nature is an essential part of the well-being of people. During Green Day 2023 more than 800 UniCredit employees in Bulgaria understood that its preservation depends on each of us and that volunteering can be a very pleasant and satisfying action”, said Rumyana Ivanova, Executive Director of the Bulgarian Biodiversity Foundation.

UniCredit’s Green Day is part of the Bank’s overall commitment to the topic of sustainable development (ESG).
