BNP Paribas in Portugal The Community

BNP Paribas Portugal’s Civic Responsibility means being a positive agent for change
• Products and services that are widely accessible
• Combat social exclusion and support human rights
• Corporate philanthropy policy focused on the arts, solidarity and the environment

At BNP Paribas we believe that economic growth can only be sustainable if it benefits everyone. Our Civic Responsibility means being responsible towards the community by taking daily action that lead to a more inclusive society. For our bank this means, for example, supporting the solidarity economy and microfinance, but also engaging in the philanthropy projects that mean the most to our business, to our people and to the communities where we are present.

In Portugal, we focus our action on promoting social inclusion and increasing opportunities through education. Along with BNP Paribas Foundation, we have established partnerships with key players in our communities to combat early school dropout through the practice of music and sports; and we also support the advancement of digital literacy in schools all over the country. The goal is to prepare the students for the jobs of the future, reducing economic and gender inequality in the access to a rewarding professional future.
