Sustainable Development Goals n°7: Ensuring access to affordable and clean energy

January 1, 2019

In pledging to double its financing of renewable energies to €15 billion by 2020, BNP Paribas is asserting itself as a player that is committed to fighting climate change.

Affordable and clean energy. This is the seventh goals among the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals which we integrated to our corporate objectives.

Energy access is indeed a crucial challenge at world level: one fifth of the world population still does not have access to electricity”

Fighting climate change through energy transition?

The Group has committed to investing €100 million by 2020 in innovative start-ups in the energy transition. At the end of 2017, €20 million had already been invested. BNP Paribas is also partnering with Mosaic, a California-based solar company providing software and financing solutions to home owners through solar contractors, making clean energy accessible to all individuals.
