UN Highlights Banco Itaú Chile’s Social Programs

Banco Itaú Chile’s “Business Week” and “Innovation in Financial Education” programs were chosen by the United Nations Global Compact’s Regional Support Center for Latin America and the Caribbean as being among the best business practices that contribute to social development in the region.

Both cases are included in a publication that highlights the best social and environmental projects in the private sector. This document was presented in the framework of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) held on June 20-22.

The programs, coordinated by Fundación Itaú, “are representative of our way of doing things, which is why we are proud to have them picked as examples of the best private social investment initiatives in the region,” said Boris Buvinic, CEO of Banco Itaú Chile.
