Sustainable development of the BNP Paribas Group in Italy
For the BNP Paribas Group in Italy awareness of its values is reflected in the adoption of socially responsible behaviour, the impact of which is monitored for all the key stakeholders – communities, customers, employees and suppliers.
In Italy the Group invests in a large number of initiatives in support of the community, ranging from BNL’s financial education courses to raise awareness of the choices available (Educare Project) and its initiatives targeted at young people, to the Arval Ecopolis project for a sustainable city.
Our Social Responsibility is based on four pillars: economic, civic, social and environmental.

There are many and continuous opportunities to meet with the community through the “BNL EduCare” programme of free training courses on key financial education issues, designed to encourage greater awareness of the various personal choices that are available.
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 196,128 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.
