Corporate Social Responsibility

Positive Leasing

Creating value for all is what responsibility means today. At BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions, our goal is to help companies grow and prosper. But we recognise we need to do more. More for the economy, for society, for the environment and for our employees.

This is where Positive Leasing comes in. Positive Leasing is an approach to Corporate Social Responsibility that has its roots firmly within the ambition of the BNP Paribas Group, which seeks to take part in building a sustainable future, while ensuring the Group’s performance and continued stability.

Fundraising events

Fundraising events

Each year our people organise and take part in team events to raise money in support of our charity partner. In 2016, our teams tackled two big events:

  • Cycle challenge: In September, 13 members from our Bristol and Basingstoke offices took part in a gruelling 24 hour, 120 mile cycle challenge between the two offices. Their training and hard work paid off, raising £7,760 for Alzheimer’s Society.
  • Tough Mudder: We also entered a team in the London Tough Mudder. This is an international endurance event where our supremely fit team navigated a 10-mile military-style obstacle course. Total raised: £1,400.
