• statutory auditors’ review report on the process used

by the BNP Paribas group to compile social

and environmental information and on a selection

of sustainable development data and issues

This is a free translation into English of the Statutory Auditors’ report issued in the French language and is provided solely for the convenience of English

speaking readers. This report should be read in conjunction with, and construed in accordance with, French law and professional auditing standards

applicable in France.

Further to your request and in our capacity as

Statutory Auditors of BNP Paribas, we have performed

a review enabling us to express moderate

assurance on the process used to compile

the social and environmental information and on

a selection of sustainable development data and

issues relating to 2006 which are presented in

the Group’s Sustainable Development report.

The procedures used to compile social and

environmental information, as well as the

related information appearing in the Sustainable

Development Report, were drawn up under

the responsibility of BNP Paribas’ Sustainable

Development function. Our responsibility is

to form a conclusion on the process used for

compiling such information and on the selected

sustainable development data and issues.

Nature and scope of our work

We performed the procedures described below,

which enabled us to obtain moderate assurance

that no material anomalies exist with respect

to the compilation of social and environmental

information and the selected sustainable development

data and issues. A higher level of insurance

would have required us to carry out more

extensive work.

As regards the procedure for drawing up the

social and environmental information, we

reviewed the relevant organisational system,

the appropriateness, reliability, objectivity

and understandability of the procedures

in place, and the dedicated reporting tools.

This work was performed on the basis of

interviews:

• At head office with:

- various representatives of the Group HR

function and the occupational physician in

charge of social reporting;

- representatives of the Group Operational

Efficiency (GOE) and Corporate Facilities

Management functions in charge of environmental

reporting;

- members of the Group’s Sustainable

Development function.

• at Group entities with the correspondents in

charge of environmental reporting at:

- BNP Paribas Frankfurt;

- BNP Paribas Geneva;

- BNP Paribas London;

- BNL Rome.
