Sustainable development for BNP Paribas in Luxembourg
In Luxembourg, the BNP Paribas Group is actively involved in environmental protection and the sustainable economy.
Its initiatives as a whole have been awarded the Socially Responsible Company label, granted in March 2011 to BGL BNP Paribas, and for the first time to a major commercial bank, by the Institute pour le Développement Durable et la Responsabilité Sociale des Entreprises (INDR – Institute for Corporate Sustainable Development and Social Responsibility).
BNP Paribas, a responsible economic player
For the Group, being a responsible bank means living up to its economic responsibilities and working to finance projects for its clients.
In addition, BNP Paribas recognises that it has responsibilities in three other areas:
This means treating the Group’s more than 192,092 employees in a fair and loyal manner and engaging in serious and meaningful dialogue with staff union representatives.
This means helping to combat social exclusion and promoting education and culture. The Group has a strong stake in society, through initiatives and projects which take its banking role one step further for the good of society: special assistance for underprivileged neighbourhoods and marginalised areas, microcredit, support for charitable organisations and social economy enterprises. Our civic engagement is also manifested in the corporate philanthropy work done by the BNP Paribas Foundation, whose charity initiatives include educational, cultural and public health projects.
BNP Paribas pays particular attention to the environmental impact resulting from its banking activities all over the world. The Group has drawn up and implemented detailed policies relating both to its day-to-day functioning and to sensitive fields of industry, and supports environmental initiatives through the BNP Paribas Foundation.
