ESG: the essential reports from BNP Paribas

As the number of regulations, initiatives, coalitions, and commitments dedicated to sustainable finance grows, it is becoming more and more important to have meticulous methodologies and reporting on ESG criteria (environmental, social, governance). To that end, 2022 has already seen the release of major reports detailing the Group’s actions to accelerate toward a more sustainable and inclusive world. We take a look back at these important documents.

After presenting its 2025 Strategic plan in February, BNP Paribas today releases its first “Climate Analytics and Alignment Report”. Documented, quantified, and based on climate data from the International Energy Agency (IEA), this report will serve as a compass for aligning our portfolio towards a net-zero economy.

The 2021 integrated report 


2021 was especially marked by the persistence of the global health crisis, still affecting our lifestyles and work, but also by a notable economic rebound. In this context, the Group has been fully mobilized to support the recovery of the economy and has been particularly resilient. It also continued to accelerate its digitalisation, confirmed its leadership in sustainable finance, and strengthened its support to its clients’ transition to more sustainable models.
