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.
Promote access to more responsible and sustainable consumption, to support our customers and partners.
Our purpose embodies BNP Paribas Personal Finance’s ambition to place positive impact at the heart of our business on the same level of our economic performance.
This purpose is the result of a collective project of more than 200 collaborators, partners and civil society actors. Consumption is at the heart of the economy and more responsible and sustainable consumption can meet the challenges of the planet. But, to make a difference on a large scale, these more responsible choices must be accessible to as many people as possible.
Our purpose is embodied in a manifesto, translated into 16 languages, which explains why we chose it and how we will make it tangible through 7 concrete, meaningful and measurable commitments, organized around 3 large families.
This is the beginning of a great transformation of our business. The road is long and we are determined.

The #1MillionHours2Help programme lets BNP Paribas Group employees contribute their working time to organisations campaigning for a greener, more inclusive world.
At BNP Paribas Personal Finance, we would like to focus volunteering on four themes important to the company that reflect a deep meaning for our profession: digital and social inclusion, financial education, young people and environmental protection.
The volunteers can carry out individual or group solidarity projects such as supporting or training young people in difficulty, participating in “Responsible Budgeting” workshops as part of our budget education programme or backing environmental protection organisations.
For many years, the Group’s employees worldwide have been taking part in a variety of volunteer initiatives, collectively giving their time to various associations including Unicef, the Association des Paralysés de France, La Mie de Pain, Emmaüs, and Read Write Fun in Hong Kong…
