  • BGL BNP Paribas Act for Impact

At the launch of the new offer, Luxembourg and international stakeholders from the social entrepreneurship and social innovation sector met to discuss the solutions to be implemented to strengthen the ecosystem in Luxembourg.

As stressed by Frédéric Bardeau, chairman and co-founder of Simplon.co, social enterprises have specific needs in that they seek to achieve economic viability and a social and/or environmental impact. Simplon.co supports early school leavers and trains them in computer code. The company now employs more than 250 people and, as proof of its success, Frédéric Bardeau was elected social entrepreneur of 2017 in France.

Nadine Muller, Managing Director of 6zero1 SA SIS, conducts an entirely customised support programme for anyone who wants to start up or develop a company with a social or societal dimension in Luxembourg. The aim of 6zero1 SA SIS is to become the preferred intermediary to bring social-economy business and committed financial partners together.

To meet the specific needs and support the development of these businesses, "Act for Impact" is working on several fronts, with BGL BNP Paribas having trained experts to familiarise them with the day-to-day issues of social entrepreneurs and implemented a customised financial and non-financial offer. The initiative enables social enterprises to benefit from concrete support at each stage of their development, whether in seeking financing or supporting their project. Through the initiative, BGL BNP Paribas intends to support this movement and bring together the community of social entrepreneurs and partners under the same banner.

Geoffroy Bazin, Country Manager of the BNP Paribas Group in Luxembourg and Chairman of the Executive Committee of BGL BNP Paribas, stresses that "the social and solidarity economy sector is growing and requires, in Luxembourg, the cooperation of all stakeholders in the ecosystem. Our aim with ‘Act for Impact’ is to accelerate the social entrepreneurship and social innovation movement."

Being the bank for a changing world means participating in building a sustainable future and supporting the companies that contribute to it.
