BNP Paribas presents its 2012 Innovation Awards to 19 teams from around the world

This year BNP Paribas continues to promote Responsible Innovation through its Innovation Awards, a competition that is open to all employees. These Awards, created in 2007, are a tool that supports Innovation Management.

For the 2012 Awards, specific criteria were introduced to highlight the greater importance the Group attaches to Corporate Social Responsibility in its Awards selection process. The importance of innovations that address the issues of fighting against climate change or propose solutions for improving the social impact of BNP Paribas' banking products and services were given particular consideration during the assessment and selection process.

The 2012 edition of the Awards met all expectations with business and responsibility occupying an important place in the entries.
