fr en de

On 15 February 2022, Béatrice Belorgey, Chair of the BGL BNP Paribas Executive Committee and Head of the BNP Paribas Group in Luxembourg, handed a EUR 10,000 donation to Viviane Vermeer, President of the Wonschstär Foundation, to help seriously ill, disabled and disadvantaged individuals. This donation was possible thanks to the commitment of the bank’s employees, who all took part in an initiative to reduce their paper consumption.

  • Challenge Paperless Wonschstär

    Catherine Wurth, Responsable RSE, BGL BNP Paribas; Viviane Vermeer, Présidente de la Fondation Wonschstär; Béatrice Belorgey, Présidente du Comité exécutif de BGL BNP Paribas et Responsable Pays du Groupe BNP Paribas au Luxembourg; Mathilde Jahan, Transformation Programme Manager

In an effort to ensure its activities have a positive impact at every level, in January 2021 BGL BNP Paribas challenged all of its employees to reduce their paper consumption compared to 2020. The teams showed genuine enthusiasm and commitment to the initiative, reducing their overall paper use by 25% compared to 2020.

The team that achieved the biggest reduction in paper use could name a charity of its choice to receive a donation of EUR 10,000 from the bank.

The Wonschstär Foundation was selected and received EUR 10,000 to help finance an exoskeleton for a rehabilitation centre. This exoskeleton will enable people with chronic neurological disorders such as spinal cord injuries to learn to walk again.

Béatrice Belorgey said: “The commitment of all BGL BNP Paribas staff led to us hitting some very ambitious targets. I would like to thank all of the teams for this collective effort, which helps ensure a more sustainable development and provide support for the most vulnerable.”
