From start-ups to SMEs to multinationals companies, BNP Paribas supports businesses of all types. By financing and investing ethically, the Bank plays a role in the economic development of society as a whole and supports jobs creation.

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.
