BNP Paribas SA’s Retail Banking network in France was involved in over

1,000 formal or informal voluntary partnerships with various organisations.

These relations often take the form of internships, work experience schemes

or apprenticeships. Many of these partnerships also serve to promote

the sports, cultural and artistic initiatives of young people, as well as local

projects to help integrate them into the labour force, fight social exclusion

and protect the environment.

Projet Banlieues: part of this project involves providing support to

local associations, especially as regards education. Its aim is to develop

economic activity, aid youth insertion and promote social cohesion.

Thirty-four projects were approved in 2006, most of which were educationrelated.

Consumer organisations: the Quality & Consumer Relations Department

within French Retail Banking has set up partnerships with around ten

consumer rights groups.
