To know everything about our Climate & Biodiversity Initiative: conferences, projects, etc.
In 2022, the BNP Paribas Foundation allocated €6 million to its Climate & Biodiversity Initiative programme in order to finance eight new international research projects.
Coastal ecosystems, which play a vital role for climate, emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The challenge for the research effort is to know whether, once in the atmosphere, they will aggregate into particles which can eventually form clouds and so have a cooling effect on our climate.
Project led by the University of Helsinki (Finland).
Launch an expedition with the widest range of scientists to best characterise this exceptional environment. Investigate past climate-related processes and look to the future.

The Global Carbon Atlas is a website where the public can obtain, view and interpret the latest data on the global carbon cycle.
Funding from the BNP Paribas Foundation has enabled the Global Carbon Project’s teams to put a working and data-sharing platform on line for researchers worldwide focusing on the carbon cycle, as well as to update it every year since 2013.
