Isabelle Giordano will succeed Jean Jacques Goron as Head of Group Philanthropy and General Delegate of the BNP Paribas Foundation

BNP Paribas' Corporate Philanthropy activities are based on three areas of action: Culture, solidarity and the environment. With a Group Corporate Philanthropy budget of 44.53 million euros in 2019, philanthropic initiatives have been deployed in the many countries where BNP Paribas is present, through its 12 Foundations or under direct governance. In the cultural field, thanks to the Group's support, numerous creations have emerged in jazz, dance and contemporary circus. In the field of solidarity, BNP Paribas has notably rolled out its European programme for the integration of refugees in 11 countries. Through the Dream Up programme, the BNP Paribas Foundation has continued to promote education through artistic practise in some 30 countries. As far as the environment is concerned, the BNP Paribas Foundation has supported nine new research programmes through its call for international 'Climate and Biodiversity Initiative.'
