• impact on the natural environment / three key success factors

BNP Paribas is an active participant in the

EU-ETS, conducting both proprietary trading

and transac-tions on behalf of its clients.

BNP Paribas Commodity Futures is one of the

largest institutions making up the membership

of the London Clearinghouse, by amounts

cleared and in terms of EUA futures executed.

Leveraging its presence in emissions rights

trading markets and its substantial portfolio

of carbon credits generated by projects with

high environmental value as part of the Clean

Development Mechanism, the Group is able to

offer intermediation services to clients faced with

regulatory constraints on their CO 2 emissions.

These services include placing buy and sell

orders for emission rights, developing derivatives-based

hedging solutions, and guaranteed

delivery of carbon credits.

To adapt to its clients’ future needs, BNP Paribas manages a geographically and technologically

diversi-fied portfolio of carbon credits. This choice reflects the Group’s vision that these products

represent a key instrument, providing a profitable return on investment and integrating social and

environmental responsibility.
