Movin'On, the World Summit on Sustainable Mobility, focuses on "solutions for multimodal ecosystems" – and BNP Paribas is once again a partner.


For the third year running, BNP Paribas is a major partner at the Movin'On Summit, which is dedicated to sustainable mobility. Some 5,000 participants will gather for the 2019 Summit in Montreal on 4-6 June to explore innovative, actionable solutions that will forge the future of clean and sustainable transport systems across the world.



The main sponsor Michelin will be joined by its organisational partner C2, with other partners including the province of Quebec, the city of Montreal, Accenture, Thales and Total.

The Movin'On Summit 2019 focuses on "Solutions for multimodal ecosystems", with five themes: decarbonisation and air quality, multimodal urban transit and society, innovative technologies, goods transportation and multimodality and the circular economy.

Attendees will enjoy two and a half days of presentations, round tables and working sessions on sustainability in mobility, with 80 speakers and moderators. Forty startups are due to exhibit, and participants can see demonstrations of innovative transport solutions and technologies.



Speakers include leaders from cities, countries, companies and civil society – for example the World Bank's Senior Director for the Transport Global Practice, Guangzhe Chen, Portuguese First Secretary of State for Mobility (and Chairman of the Transport Decarbonisation Alliance Steering Committee) José Gomes Mendes and sustainability heads from companies such as BMW and Oracle.

BNP Paribas demonstrates its commitment to sustainable mobility with the participation of Vice Chairman of Corporate and Institutional Banking EMEA, Sophie Javary, as a keynote speaker. The Chief Commercial Officer of Arval vehicle leasing, Bart Beckers, and the Chief Sustainability Officer at BNP Paribas Americas, Hervé Duteil, will be heading up working sessions, while Head of CIB Company Engagement Constance Chalchat will moderate a panel discussion on AI.



The Bank will also be sponsoring the Summit's Braindate area. The Braindate app allows people to set up 30-minute 'dates' with people interested in the same topics to share and discuss experiences and ideas at the venue.

BNP Paribas and sustainable mobility

Sustainability is at the heart of BNP Paribas' strategy, and the bank is one of the few multinationals to integrate the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as a key element of its corporate strategy.

Recent transactions for the Bank in the area of sustainable mobility and cities include sustainability-linked loans to Spanish infrastructure and services operator Ferrovial in 2018 and to South African automotive group Motus in 2019.

BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions and IVECO, through their joint venture CNH Industrial Capital Europe, are taking part in a European project that aims at supporting the development of BioLNG energy for transport across Europe.
