BNP Paribas, a responsible economic player

Providing long-term support to our customers and partners for a positive economy

BNP Paribas in Ireland, along with the rest of the Group, has always been serious about its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) obligations. At the centre of the Group’s vision are the current issues confronting people and the environment with the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals driving its actions. The objective is clear: make progress in financing a carbon neutral economy by 2050. 

Supporting change

BNP Paribas has become one of the first companies to include a clear reference to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in its Corporate and Social Responsibility.

The Group works actively to support changes in the financial sector. It does this notably through large coalitions, by participating in work groups or through the creation of dedicated methodologies. The primary objective is to support clients, whether they be individuals, corporations or institutions, in their own transitions. This multifaceted approach addresses an array of subjects from energy to mobility to real estate, while also encouraging the creation and distribution of products that are more inclusive, responsible and innovative. Supporting these transitions also means financing and assisting start-ups dedicated to change. With this in mind, the Group and its nearly 190,000 employees are also adapting their ways of working: BNP Paribas has been notably carbon neutral since 2017.
