Each and every company bears a responsibility vis-à-vis the major challenges of sustainable development. Our business places us at the centre of the economic system. We are therefore committed to a set of Corporate Social Responsibility policies which enable us to adapt to the changes taking place in our society while also ensuring high performance and maintaining the Group’s stability.

We have been pursuing sustainable development policies since 2002. Today our CSR policy is based on 4 pillars comprising 12 commitments. Recently this policy was brought under BNP Paribas Group governance, which promotes a long-term approach to CSR strategy.

In the same vein, in order to ensure that this policy operates as concretely and effectively as possible across the entire Group, based on clear positions and consistent best practice, we have determined various levels of decision-making, action and monitoring.  

All these CSR initiatives are being steered, on a 2015 deadline, with the aid of a set of 13 indicators on key issues, including policies for lending, financing, investment and support for social enterprise. These indicators also feature among the extra-financial criteria included in the 2012 3-year incentive plan, from which 5,000 Group employees are now benefiting.
