A Responsible Business
BNP Paribas is committed to being a responsible bank. Driven by a strong tradition of service provided to individual customers and businesses, BNP Paribas has always regarded the relationship of trust with its clients as its number once assets. BNP Paribas Corporate Social Responsibility policy is rooted in four main areas.
- Economic responsibility: Financing the economy, in an ethical manner
BNP Paribas incorporates environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria into its investment products and offers a diversified range of socially responsible investment (SRI) funds. In 2004 the bank launched the first World Bank equity index-linked green bonds in response to market evolution and investors’ changing expectations.

BNP Paribas’ Ireland Social Programme includes many health and wellbeing initiatives and is leading the way for the BNP Paribas Group in driving diversity and inclusion to ensure that employees are valued for their differences and are empowered to succeed.

BNP Paribas’ Ireland Civic Programme provides a range of educational and environmental schemes to support local disadvantaged neighbourhoods. As part of this Civic Programme, BNP Paribas supports CLOUDLANDS an inspiring arts and technology project, started in December 2012, for teenagers with chronic illnesses at Temple Street.
-Environmental responsibility: combatting climate change
In Ireland, BNP Paribas continues to focus on reducing its environmental footprint and pays particular attention to the environmental impact resulting from its banking activities.
