Our commitments within the area of social responsibility – one of the four cornerstones of our CSR and Sustainability Strategy

  • Wider access to products and services
  • Counteracting social exclusion and supporting human rights
  • Philanthropy focused on the arts, social solidarity and the natural environment

Our initiatives are developed in order to bring about real positive change. We counteract social exclusion, foster education and culture, especially in small communities. Three key branches coordinate these actions:

  • CSR & Sustainable Finance Department,
  • BNP Paribas Foundation,
  • Sales Support Team and Local Availability Ambassadors within the team.

Activities aimed at products and services availability have been described in the chapter Business Perspective.

Together with non-governmental organisations, we run numerous educational programmes and our employees are involved in social activities. This is how we increase social capital and contribute to reaching the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
