Support for research – Supporting research to combat climate change
In addition to monitoring the environmental impact of our activities, BNP Paribas also supports efforts to protect the environment.
- In early 2011, the BNP Paribas Foundation, in close collaboration with the CSR function, launched the “Climate initiative” programme to support fundamental research into climate change. With a budget of EUR 3 million over three years, this program assists five research projects carried by internationally renowned laboratories. Please click here to find out more.
- Since 2012, BNP Paribas Japan collaborates with Earthwatch Japan to provide support to field monitoring of coastal areas, part of a comprehensive research on marine organisms under global environmental changes. The research will contribute to build knowledge on marine ecosystem for its conservation and sustainable use. The research was started in 2002 by a consortium of Japanese universities in 6 coastal areas in Japan and is helped by Earthwatch Japan since 2008.
