Corporate Social Responsibility

As a corporate citizen of the society, we simply cannot remain indifferent to the causes that affect the planet, the environment and our fellow humans. As a company, we must take into account the environmental and societal consequences of our activity.

At the heart of BNP Paribas Group’s strategy, there is a strong desire to participate in building a more sustainable and better shared future. This willingness translates our Corporate Engagement approach, in particular by helping to achieve the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). At BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions, we share this belief and want to fully support this approach with concrete measures.

Conceived around our transformation strategy and the principle of constant dialogue with all our stakeholders, this approach enables us to grow while being more respectful of the environment, more ethical in our morals and united in our purpose.

To ensure that BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions has a maximum impact and is able to serve its customers, its partners and the society as a whole, each and every employee of the company embodies and assumes this responsibility.

To this end, we’ve outlined 3 key areas of action which are relevant to our activity and where we hope to be able to make maximum impact.

Promoting Circular Economy: We develop solutions and associated services for better life cycle management of equipment. In this way, we also support our clients in reducing waste and conserving natural resources.

Tracking our own environment footprint: Through reporting and well-defined indicators, we closely track any impact that our business activities may have on the environment.
