A strong commitment 

For many years, BNP Paribas has gone above and beyond the regulatory and legal requirements by enacting a committed and responsible D&I (Diversity & Inclusion) Policy in every country where the Group operates. 

Since 2007, BNP Paribas has identified discrimination as one of its 30 major operational risks. In 2015, the Group placed diversity at the center of the “BNP Paribas Way,” a charter outlining the company’s main values. 

Almost 15 years ago, BNP Paribas decided to structure its actions by forming a dedicated team and committee, consisting of 35 Diversity Officers and representing the 72 countries where the Group operates, as well as all of its business lines and functions. “Promoting diversity and inclusion” thus became one of the company’s 12 CSR commitments in 2012.
