Sustainable Development Goals n°10: Reducing inequalities within and among countries

January 1, 2019

Reducing inequality is a key to harmonious economic development. It needs to occur both within and among countries.

At BNP Paribas, we have made the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals part of our corporate objectives, because we consider that large companies must contribute to a more equitable and ecological world.

On average – and taking into account population size – income inequality increased by 11% in developing countries between 1990 and 2010.”

What kind of actions is BNP Paribas taking?

Since 2004, the BNP Paribas Swiss Foundation has been supporting solidarity projects as part of its Help2Help programme dedicated to the Bank’s employees in Switzerland who volunteer with national or international associations active in the social field. So far, the BNP Paribas Swiss Foundation has supported over 150 projects with subsidies worth up to CHF 6’000. Let’s hear the testimony of Rémi, one of the bank’s employees who benefited from some financial aid to carry out a project in Morocco.
