BNP Paribas is an Official Partner of Paris 2024 following the signing of a formal contract with the Paris 2024 Olympic Bid Committee
The commitment of BNP Paribas
BNP Paribas is the number one employer in the administrative département of Seine-Saint-Denis to the north-east of Paris, where the Olympic and Paralympic Village is to be set up, and the third-largest employer in the Ile-de-France (Paris region). The Bank demonstrates in its day-to-day actions a strong sense of social engagement and civic responsibility, key values which closely reflect the ideals championed by the Paris 2024 Bid Committee.
Moreover, BNP Paribas is passionately committed to supporting talent of all kinds. Accordingly, the Group will be taking the opportunity afforded by this partnership with Paris 2024 to emphasise its contribution to the responsible development of talent among both Bank staff and customers and extending to all those working to ensure the success of the Olympic bid.
"BNP Paribas was created 17 years ago by a merger between the Banque nationale de Paris (BNP) and the Banque de Paris et des Pays Bas (Paribas). France’s capital city has therefore always been central to our history. In addition, a passion for sport has been running through our veins for close to 50 years, it is therefore both entirely natural and exciting for us to become banking partner to the Paris bid to host the 2024 Olympic Games. Supporting talent means both fostering initiative and promoting a culture of self-discipline. These two qualities – initiative and discipline – which are absolutely central to the Olympic Games, are also indispensable for our staff as they seek to provide our customers with an optimal service."
CEO of the BNP Paribas Group
“ We share with BNP Paribas the determination to deliver on this fantastic promise to the Paris 2024 generation. Moreover, BNP Paribas has a profound understanding of major sports competitions. ”
