The Sustainable Development Goals launched in 2015 by the UN aim to eradicate poverty by 2030 while protecting the planet. As a bank and global business, BNP Paribas is a key player in achieving these goals. Our Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR) projects allow us to contribute towards developing a sustainable future, while ensuring the Group’s performance and stability.
The commitments of BGL BNP Paribas
As an active player in the Luxembourg economy for many years, BGL BNP Paribas supports entrepreneurship in all areas upstream from traditional finance, such as education, financial inclusion, start-ups and responsible finance products.
BGL BNP Paribas, a bank that operates both locally and internationally, plays an important role in supporting the real economy in a responsible manner. The aim of “CSR Accelerator” is to drive economic and social change in Luxembourg.
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 198,011 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.
