We are a pioneer in #PositiveBanking: in 2017, the Group provided support worth over €5 billion to non-profit organisations and social enterprises in the form of financing, investments on behalf of third parties, philanthropy and volunteering, while the provision of financing for the energy transition and sectors directly contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals reached €155 billion.

“At BNP Paribas, we put sustainable finance at the heart of our business model. We believe banks have a crucial role to play, leveraging our place at the centre of the economy, in order to bring together individuals, businesses and investors to channel resources towards projects which address the major social and environmental challenges facing society.”
