Vendor Finance Provider and Best Energy Transition Financing Programme(s) Award Winners

BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions receives Vendor Finance Provider and Best Energy Transition Financing Programme(s) awards at the Leasing Life Conference & Awards 2023.

The ceremony, hosted on 9th November 2023 in Budapest, Hungary, marked the 20th anniversary of the prestigious awards which recognise the achievements of the key players in the European asset finance industry.

Scooping not one, but two fiercely contested awards, the accolade of Vendor Finance Provider is in recognition of BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions’ enduring commitment to its extensive network of equipment manufacturers and suppliers across Europe and beyond – supporting investment in essential business assets to boost growth and drive innovation.

The Award for Best Energy Transition Financing Programme(s) reflects BNP Paribas’ dedication to supporting partners and clients on their journey to net-zero.

Commenting on the two awards, Pascal Layan, Deputy CEO at BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions said:
“To be recognised as Vendor Finance Provider highlights our unwavering commitment to partnerships, a core company value that drives us forward. To win the Award for Best Energy Transition Financing Programme(s) for the second year in a row emphasises our dedication to supporting our partners and their clients in their sustainable transition.

I want to thank our teams whose hard work fuels our success, and to our partners and clients who consistently place their trust in us. Together we are contributing to a sustainable and prosperous future.”
