BNP Paribas’ efforts to place responsible banking front and centre of its long-term strategy has won recognition as the bank is named “World’s Best Bank for Corporate Responsibility” in this year’s Euromoney Awards for Excellence 2019.
Sustainable finance and social engagement are but two areas where BNP Paribas has continued to push the boundaries, as business sectors around the world continue their march towards more sustainable and responsible business models. In addition, the bank’s financing and banking teams won recognition in Western Europe.
Overall, BNP Paribas won top honours in four categories:
Best Bank for Financing, Western Europe
Best Bank for Transaction Services, Western Europe
Best Bank in Luxembourg
Following on from being named “World’s Best Bank for Sustainable Finance” by Euromoney in 2018, BNP Paribas has again underlined its commitment to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through aligning its financing, investment and policies to address key social and environmental challenges.
“While some banks lean towards solving social or environmental challenges, BNP Paribas sees the two as inextricably linked,” she explained.

Finally BGL BNP Paribas, the bank’s Luxembourg entity, was recognised for its active contribution to the financial sector. With 41 branches across the country serving retail, wealth management and corporate and institutional clients, the award – won for the fourth consecutive year – is testimony to the long-term commitment of the bank in the country.
