WORKING WITH PARTICIPANTS IN THE SOCIAL AND SOLIDARITY ECONOMY
For several years now, BGL BNP Paribas has been committed to supporting initiatives that promote the social economy. We believe this sector is a powerhouse for finding new solutions to the challenges of the environmental and social transition, while also having a positive impact on the local economy.
As such, to strengthen our support and make our commitment more concrete, in 2019 we launched Act for Impact, which offers personalised banking and other kinds of support to over a hundred social impact structures.
