• the Group’s approach

> Vigeo

Despite the changes introduced in 2005 regarding

the assessment methods used in certain

areas such as corporate governance, the arithmetic

average of the scores obtained in the six

areas analysed in 2005 was higher than the

average for 2004. Vigeo did not revise its score

in 2006.

> CFIE

Each year CFIE (an organisation providing information

on the social and environmental performance

of companies), reviews how thoroughly

the NRE Act has been taken into account in

the annual reports of French listed companies.

BNP Paribas’ annual report is ranked in the top

ten for the fourth time, and the Group is the only

bank to appear in the ranking.

> Oekom Research

Created in 1989, Oekom Research is a German

social and environmental rating agency, which

also offers reporting and benchmarking services.

Companies are rated on a scale from D- to

A+ on the basis of indicators covering six major

areas.

Oekom Research awarded BNP Paribas “Prime”

investment status and an overall rating of C.

This shows Oekom Research’s clients that they

can invest responsibly and with confidence

in BNP Paribas. The Group achieved its best

performances in the socio-cultural domain, in

particular with regard to its anti-discrimination

and employee health and safety policies.

The Group’s overall rating has improved from C-

to C since 2002, with notable progress observed

in HR and environment management.
