In 2050, there will be 10 billion human beings on Earth, 80% of whom will live in cities*. As a major player in the European real estate market, BNP Paribas Real Estate has a duty to think about and build a sustainable urban environment for the future, to meet the expectations of our customers and partners through responsible, innovative real estate products and services that contribute to the development of a sustainable urban environment, for today and tomor-row.

Driven by a culture of responsibility and integrity based on best practices, BNP Paribas Real Estate's ambition is to ensure the long-term development of the company while guaranteeing its positive impact on society. Our CSR policy is a strategic challenge aimed at creating long-term value shared with our customers, partners and all our stakeholders. This translates into a willingness at the highest level of our governance to combine performance, responsibility, ethics and transparency
Our ways of living and working are changing. The urban environment must adapt to these changes by involving all of its participants, whether this is in designing offices and housing, participating in the economic and social life of the regions in which we operate, developing our employees’ skills, or sup-porting disability and encouraging diversity.
As such, CSR is a factor of innovation and economic performance for our customers and for our-selves.
In 2015, the United Nations adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a global call to commit to a fairer future for humanity and the planet. To define its actual and potential contribution to this challenge, BNP Paribas Real Estate has analysed the link between the SDGs and its own CSR commitments defined in its CSR policy, “Inspire Real Estate 2020”. We also used a real estate benchmark and the recommendations of the World Green Building Council relating to the contribution of green buildings to the SDGs.
The BNP Paribas Real Estate vision
Our CSR policy consists of 4 responsibilities (economic, environmental, social and civil), plus 12 commitments.
Our ambition is to meet the expectations of our customers and partners through responsible, innovative real estate products and services and to contribute to the development of sustaina-ble urban environments.
All our indicators online
In the interests of transparency and ethics with regard to its stakeholders, BNP Paribas Real Estate has developed an online reporting platform based on the methodology implemented by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). This method is based on a set of performance indicators that make it pos-sible to measure the progress of companies in pursuing their sustainable development policy by taking into account governance, economic, environmental and social criteria.
