BNP Paribas Bank Polska S.A., which has been listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange since 2011 is a member of the BNP Paribas banking group whose footprint spans 65 countries. In Poland, as a universal bank with a global reach, it provides services to retail customers and other segments including Wealth Management, microbusinesses, SMEs and corporate banking. As it advocates green initiatives, BNP Paribas supports its clients in the transition to a low carbon economy, endeavors to curtail the adverse impact of its operations on the natural environment and inspires clients to make good financial decisions. The Bank has provided funding for more than 40 thousand households to install photovoltaic panels. The Bank also consistently pursues its strategy of financing businesses in Poland while also supporting investments of strategic importance to the country with a positive social, economic and environmental impact.
At the same time, the Bank is efficiently digitalizing banking processes by rolling out innovative solutions in its internet and mobile banking platforms: GOonline and GOmobile. By taking into consideration the growing need for remote access to services, the Bank has made it possible for clients to open an account using a selfie. The Bank also enables clients who appreciate the opportunity to hold a face-to-face meeting with an advisor to schedule an appointment in a branch. BNP Paribas is constantly adapting its branches to serve all its clients. For instance, it offers the assistance of a sign language interpreter free of charge in its branches and through the hotline.
Bank BNP Paribas proactively addresses socially important topics such as the role played by women and their growing responsibility in society and at work; it openly and sensitively promulgates diversity while pursuing activities to involve employees and the overall market. The Bank is socially engaged through its educational efforts ranging from giving smart assistance to environmentally friendly solutions, to the Class program and sponsoring activities. The latter focus on promoting tennis and culture, especially the cinema.
Corporate social responsibility, one of the Bank’s key values, is deeply embedded in its culture and pertains to how it cultivates relationships with its employees and local communities. Bank employees take part in many initiatives giving them an opportunity to change the world on a day-to-day basis. The constantly growing number of employee volunteers was one of the factors that contributed to the Bank becoming a strategic partner in the Noble Package (Szlachetna Paczka) project, including support for this organization’s operations and advancing the idea of extending thoughtful help.
