  • 12.10.2018

On 17 October, for the third consecutive year, BNP Paribas is holding the Sustainable Future Forum at the Maison de la Mutualité in Paris. The aim is to bring corporate customers and institutional investors together to share and talk about their needs and goals in terms of sustainable finance. The event highlights the bank’s commitment and leadership in Sustainable Development, with panels on changing business models, green finance and the private sector.

Playing a role in sustainable finance for a better future

The 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals intend to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure global peace and prosperity by 2030. 

As a European leader and player in energy transition, BNP Paribas plays a decisive role in this joint effort. Its socially and environmentally responsible approach contributes to building a sustainable future. The Group’s CSR policy is based on four pillars: financing the economy in an ethical manner, favouring the development and commitment of our employees, being a committed stakeholder in society, and acting against climate change.

A Sustainable Development roadmap in Europe

Europe is taking the lead in the sustainable development race.

Leadership in favour of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

How should companies behave in a time of increased surveillance of sustainable development performance? How are their boards of directors reacting to the challenges and opportunities that this brings? How do you achieve sustainable development in a period of economic crisis or challenge? Have we entered an era where social and environmental capital is becoming as sought-after as economic capital?
