BNP Paribas, a responsible economic player

BNP Paribas - a responsible economic player

For the BNP Paribas, 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:

Social responsibility

This means treating the Group’s more than 198,816 employees in a fair and loyal manner and engaging in serious and meaningful dialogue with staff union representatives.

Civic responsibility

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.
