Fighting against Food Poverty

2018 ? Milan

Social Bonds are a new financial instrument to collect private investments: part of the prevents is donated, aiming to reduce or prevent social problems. In 2014 Deutsche Bank has built the first social bond in favor of Banco Alimentare Onlus. The success of social bond has allowed Deutsche Bank to donate more than 100 euros to finance the research "Food Poverty in Italy", that has been presented in 2015 at EXPO.
This was an important experiment, symbolizing the importance of using finance as a tool to build solidarity and social cohesion.

In addition, Deutsche Bank employees since 2013 have been involved in volunteering activities in collaboration with Banco Alimentare.
