General Information

CDP has been investing in the Italy of the future since 1850.

CDP fosters sustainable development in Italy, using the country’s savings responsibly to support growth and boost employment, supporting innovation, business competitiveness, infrastructure and local development.

In 2015, CDP was confirmed as the National Promotional Institute (NPI) by the Italian Government and the European Union. This new role has enabled CDP to expand the scope of our business activities, becoming the entry point for the Investment Plan for Europe (“Junker Plan”), financial advisor for public administrations using national and European funds and an investment catalyser for public and private entities.

CDP has been the Italian Development Finance Institution since 2016. In this role CDP aims to become key players in the strategy to promote sustainable development on a global scale.




CDP supports the innovation, growth and internationalisation of small, medium and large companies. CDP's financial and industrial expertise, from within the Group and its subsidiaries, is made available to companies to develop synergies in the production chain and between different sectors.

CDP finances infrastructure, investments in public administrations and the country. It supports policies to enhance the real estate assets of local authorities, invest in social and educational buildings and supports energy efficiency policies. CDP provides financial and technical consultancy support for public administrations, during project planning and design phases.


CDP transparently works to carry out our institutional mission of supporting and promoting Italian development policies, all the while acknowledging the importance of the task at hand.
