A shared vision

Promoting jointly sustainable and profitable energy transition solutions

BNP Paribas and Solar Impulse are working hand in hand to accelerate the implementation of solutions that protect the environment in a profitable way and thus bridge the gap between ecology and economy.
This trusting partnership reinforces the group’s commitment strategy around several activities:
• Three BNP Paribas solutions have already been awarded the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution label
• An active network of 13 experts mobilized internally studies the risks of the solutions proposed by Solar Impulse
• A “community of interest” led by BNP Paribas on Energy Efficiency was launched at Movin’On on sustainable mobility
• This partnership is also reinforced by a joint presence at major events such as Change Now, VivaTech or Expert Challenge

Our partnership with BNP Paribas demonstrates that today environmental protection is profitable. Investing in new technologies makes sense: it’s logical, even more than eco-friendly. It creates jobs and stimulates clean economic growth that is much better.
