We live responsibility

Sustainability strategy and commitment of BNP Paribas in Germany

Two people in nature

As one of the leading banking groups in Europe, we have a great responsibility towards society and the environment. We want to live up to that by aligning what we do with the sustainable development goals of the United Nations.

The sustainability strategy of BNP Paribas in Germany

With our eyes on the goal of a fairer and more sustainable world, we engage in initiatives like the Net Zero Banking Alliance and in corporate volunteering projects on a daily basis. Our commitment and our ethical conduct are firmly anchored in our corporate culture, as can be seen in our Code of Conduct and our Company Purpose. We have defined sustainable and measurable goals for this purpose. For example, we have significantly increased the amount of credit for companies and projects that make a direct and documented contribution to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) each year: in 2021 it was 244 billion euros.

Our sustainability strategy rests on four pillars:
Economy, employees, society and environment

Transfor­mation of the economy

Development of our employees

Responsibility for society

Protecting the environment

“For BNP Paribas, demonstrating responsibility has many facets:
from supporting our business customers and the sustainable orientation of our business model, through corporate volunteering activities by our employees to the sponsorship of children’s and youth projects via the BNP Paribas Foundation.“

Eva Meyer, Chief Sustainability Officer & Head of COMPANY ENGAGEMENT / Member Of The GroUP Management Board BNP Paribas Germany
