The BNP Paribas Foundation has been supporting climate-change research since 2010, through its Climate Initiative program.

Thus, to this day, the BNP Paribas Foundation has supported 18 research teams with a budget of EUR 12 million. Thanks to the Climate initiative projects, awareness on climate change has been raised among more than 260 000 persons.
