Company Engagement at BNP Paribas Personal Finance

Promote access to more responsible and sustainable consumption, to support our customers and partners.

Our world is facing unprecedented challenges – climate change, the depletion of natural resources, and rising inequalities – while people are experiencing profound change to how they live and work.

At BNP Paribas Personal Finance, our conviction is that consumption is at the core of these global challenges, and that it can also provide a key answer to them. Through more responsible consumption, people have the power to preserve natural resources, reduce their carbon footprint and make a difference on a greater scale. We believe that people can vote with their wallet.

Our achievements actions are presented in our Company Engagement Report 2019. Our manifesto testifies of the long-term transformation of our company and business.

« As a consumer finance company, we have a role to play to help our customers jointing with our partners access to more responsible and sustainable consumption. Through this ambition, we want to contribute proactively to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement principles. We must engage a deep transformation of our company to develop our positive impact on the society and the environment. Positive impact will thus be at the heart of our strategy, with sound and reliable KPIs to measure our future progresses. »
