BNP Paribas in Bulgaria adheres to the Group’s corporate social responsibility policy across all of its local entities, implementing responsible business practices internally as well as externally.

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:

Social responsibility
This means treating the Group’s more than 193,319 employees in a fair and loyal manner and engaging in serious and meaningful dialogue with staff union representatives.

Civic responsibility
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.

Environmental responsibility
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.
