BNP Paribas stresses factors such as community involvement, microfinancing, and diversity in their 2007 CSR. They have strong sections promoting the progression of employees with disabilities, and gender equality. They also are very involved in the local educational environment, and have programs assisting underprivilaged youth. Their report is somewhat weak, however, in the area of environmental performance; they have almost no data concerning water and paper use, or overall energy use, as well as no section addressing carbon ouput. If the company were to improve this potion of their report, they would have a very strong overall review of their environmental and social concerns. Analyzed by William P. Alston, and posted to the web on 7/7/2008.
