Around the world in 2021, with you 

Committing to a more sustainable future involves many challenges, requiring action in many areas, such as ethics in the conduct of our business, diversity or climate change. As a banking partner, we have a central role to play. We act by making our own commitments, but more importantly, by offering our clients innovative sustainable solutions helping them to increase their development and create positive impact for the common good.

In 2021, a year of rebound towards a more sustainable economy, our bankers and experts have responded to many challenges with our clients, whether acting for communities across geographies, leading the energy transition, delivering innovation in ESG markets or contributing to new standards.

The document « Around the world in 2021, with you » illustrates in 21 projects our teams commitment to our clients worldwide.
