The Banker magazine has given BNP Paribas top honours in sustainability in its highly coveted annual investment banking awards. This article appeared in the October 2016 issue of The Banker.

It has been a pivotal 12 months for sustainability the world over. At the UN's Paris climate conference (COP21) in December 2015 leaders of 195 countries adopted the first global climate deal, which binds them to keep global warming less than two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. Many banks quickly announced their commitment to help reach this ambitious target, including BNP Paribas.
"At last year's COP21 conference, we decided to double our financing to renewable energy by 2020" says Virginie Pelletier, head of sustainable finance, corporate and institutional banking at BNP Paribas. The French bank has long been a proponent of sustainability, but over the past year it has taken that to a whole new level. "As well as direct lending, we've rolled out more green capital markets products and launched a reporting tool integrating ESG [environmental, social and governance] criteria for investors, " says Ms Pelletier. "We've made excellent progress in developing services that support clients in integrating sustainability through their value chain, and will continue to expand our sustainability programme."

The bank has a dedicated sustainable capital markets team and its recent green bond
credentials are unrivalled. In May 2016 it was joint lead manager on Turkiye Sinai Kalkinma Bankasi's $300m green bond, the first out of Turkey, which will help fund private sector investments tackling greenhouse gas emissions. Two months prior it was joint arranger of the first green schuldschein, a €550m deal by German wind turbine producer Nordex.
