Awards for BNP Paribas
BNP Paribas received the awards for “Best Bank in Western Europe”, “Best Bank in France”, “Best Bank in Belgium” and “Best Bank in Luxembourg”.
2017 was characterised by the launch of a strategic plan aimed at accelerating the transformation of BNP Paribas to become the benchmark European bank. The Group is implementing the transformation programme across all operating divisions, with a focus on two strategic areas: the digital transformation and energy transition.
Digital transformation: developing a new client experience
On the back of its innovative strength and technological expertise in data security, BNP Paribas offers the most comprehensive mobile payment solutions range in the market. It has set up new customer experiences (new personalised and value-added digital services and experiences), as demonstrated in France in particular this year.
Sustainable development: a dedicated CSR policy
In accordance with the 2020 plan, the Group is also following an ambitious policy of social and environmental responsibility and is committed to making a positive impact on society. The Group aims to provide ethical financing for the economy, promote its employees’ development, support initiatives with a social impact and play a major role in the transition to a low-carbon economy.
The Group has decided to include the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations in its key CSR performance indicators.
