Global leaders launch Tobacco-Free Finance Pledge

For the first time, finance leaders are joining world leaders from government and health today to launch the Tobacco-Free Finance Pledge.

BNP Paribas is a founding signatory of the pledge  

In line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and the World Health Organization Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, the Pledge encourages signatories to consider the adoption of tobacco-free finance policies across lending, insurance and investment.

More than 120 Founding Signatories and Supporters, including BNP Paribas, were in New-York today to launch the Pledge and raise awareness among the global financial community. 

“We're committed to financing economic development that has a positive impact on society. This includes action to ensure healthy lives for present and future generations. In this respect, we consider that the Tobacco-Free Finance Pledge is a milestone initiative. Having ceased our financing and investment activities related to tobacco companies, we are proud to be one of its Founding Signatories." 

Jean-Laurent Bonnafé

Director and Chief Executive Officer of BNP Paribas
