Abstract: Abstract Several scholars have recently devoted significant effort to deepening our knowledge about the green banking approach and its implications for sustainability. Moreover, a growing number of banks have been going green worldwide, and therefore there is a need to explore green banking practices. Starting from these considerations, this chapter investigates a number of ways in which Italian banking is going green. To this end, the work aims to (1) conduct a review of the literature on this issue; (2) provide an overview of the main regulations and policies for green banks; and (3) present some of the main initiatives adopted by two major Italian banks. The study offers useful insights for those concerned with current Italian green banking approaches by adding knowledge to the international debate.
