BNP Paribas in Spain is fully committed
BNP Paribas in Spain is committed to sustainable development in all its forms, implementing environmental initiatives both internally and externally, and encouraging the involvement of its employees.
Some of the existing initiatives target reductions in energy consumption, such as switching the lights off at a set time, or in paper use, making employees aware of the need to recycle. At the same time, the bank seeks to encourage audio and video conferencing as an alternative to business travel, which, as well as being good for the environment, helps support family life.
BNP Paribas, a responsible economic player
For the Group, being a responsible bank means living up to its economic responsibilities and working to finance projects for its clients.
In addition, BNP Paribas recognises that it has responsibilities in three other areas:
This means treating the Group’s more than 198,816 employees in a fair and loyal manner and engaging in serious and meaningful dialogue with staff union representatives.
This means helping to combat social exclusion and promoting education and culture. The Group has a strong stake in society, through initiatives and projects which take its banking role one step further for the good of society: special assistance for underprivileged neighbourhoods and marginalised areas, microcredit, support for charitable organisations and social economy enterprises. Our civic engagement is also manifested in the corporate philanthropy work done by the BNP Paribas Foundation, whose charity initiatives include educational, cultural and public health projects.
BNP Paribas pays particular attention to the environmental impact resulting from its banking activities all over the world. The Group has drawn up and implemented detailed policies relating both to its day-to-day functioning and to sensitive fields of industry, and supports environmental initiatives through the BNP Paribas Foundation.
