On 25 September 2015, global leaders adopted a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to bring governments, civil society and enterprises together around 17 goals to end poverty, protect our planet and ensure peace and prosperity for all by 2030. A universal call that celebrates its 3rd anniversary today, and for the occasion reiterates its appeal to all citizens, institutions and organisations around the world to mobilise for a Global Day of Action.
The Global Day of Action wants to celebrate SDGs actions undertaken around the world, and mobilise numerous stakeholders to do something tangible. All these actions will be taken up in a global network of ideas and will allow others to follow the examples. The Act4SDGs platform invites participants to enter their projects in order to draw up a world map of SDGs actions as well as a collaborative, concrete list of joint actions and individual enterprises.
The Group has also decided to introduce the SDGs into its CSR key performance indicators. A pioneer in the banking sector, it was the first to propose a yearly global indicator. Moreover, at end-2017, total financing provided by BNP Paribas to promote the energy transition and the SDGs was €155 billion (compared to €135 billion in 2016).
