As the bank for a changing world, BNP Paribas understands that the impact of climate change and changing social and consumer expectations are transforming business. We work with corporates and institutions to bridge the gap between the companies that know they must transform to secure their long-term prosperity and the investors who now factor sustainability into their returns.
Sustainable Finance & Investment is embedded across each and every business that operates under the Group, in the products we offer investors (green bonds, sustainable bonds, sustainable equity indices) to the advice we provide corporates around structuring their debts (loans and bonds), financing renewables, supply chain management and M&A.
It is our ambition to be the reference bank for sustainability in India. This means that BNP Paribas is involved in causes where we can make a difference, such as:
- Financing the real economy and the positive impact that flows therefrom.
- Socially responsible investment and sustainable finance.
- Support for energy transition.
- Support for entrepreneurs and young people.
- Consideration of the needs of local ecosystems, regions and communities, where we are active.
Our ambition is guided by four pillars of responsible banking: The Economy, Our People, The Community and The Environment
