Carbon neutrality: BNP Paribas and the GoodPlanet Foundation launch a new carbon offsetting programme
In May 2017, as part of its policy combating climate change, the BNP Paribas group announced its objective of becoming a carbon-neutral company by the end of 2017.
Target reached at end-2017
At the end of 2017, BNP Paribas was proud to announce that it had become carbon neutral thanks to a combination of three actions:
- Reducing direct CO² emissions to reach the objective of a 25% reduction by 2020, via an active policy of promoting energy efficiency at the Bank’s buildings and data centres and by optimising its employees’ business travel.
- Neutralising emissions arising from energy consumption by only using low-carbon electricity in all countries where it is available.
- Offsetting CO² emissions that cannot be reduced.
Launch of a voluntary, solidarity carbon offsetting programme
BNP Paribas and the GoodPlanet Foundation, through its MyPlanet subsidiary, are launching a voluntary, solidarity carbon offsetting programme which will take place over 10 years and will improve the living conditions of approximately 70,000 people.
Signature between Jean-Laurent Bonnafé, CEO of BNP Paribas and Yann Arthus-Bertrand, President of the GoodPlanet Foundation
