BNP Paribas global Sustainable Future Forum series gathered clients to discuss the opportunities and challenges presented by sustainability.


BNP Paribas hosted a series of Sustainable Future Forums across its global hubs in the Americas, Europe and APAC, bringing together corporates and investors to discuss the challenges and opportunities of sustainability. The events highlighted the bank's commitment and leadership on contributing towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). From New York and São Paulo to Paris and Singapore, the series encompassed panels on green finance, shifting business models, supply chains, governance, diversity, and clean energy.

Paris kicked off the series, hosting an engaging forum that included a captivating keynote from Bertrand Piccard, Initiator and Chairman of the Solar Impulse Foundation. Track sessions allowed clients to converse with sustainability specialists about topics including; the investor movement to incorporate Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG), renewable energy, smart cities and smart mobility. The forum also featured an SDGs innovation village, showcasing entrepreneurs and start-ups contributing towards the achievement of the UN SDGs.


The Americas SFF events in New York and São Paulo brought together representatives from large corporates, and focussed on panel discussions around sustainable supply chain management and stock financing. The New York event was moderated by BSR, a consulting firm specialized in sustainability, and emphasised the strategic importance of sustainability as a finance lever, noting a greater need for industry partnerships and knowledge sharing. 


The finale of the global series was the APAC SFF. Hosted for a second consecutive year in Singapore, the forum gathered 500 delegates from 222 organisations and included engaging panels on sustainable economic growth, green investment in APAC, ESG performance and green profitability. The event also featured a fascinating keynote by tennis star and former world number one Martina Navratilova, on 'creating business success through gender equality'.
