BNP Paribas launches a new Corporate Philanthropy programme in support of climate change research

As part of BNP Paribas’ overall commitment to combating climate change, the BNP Paribas Foundation has stepped up its work in the environmental field by launching a new programme intended to support research into climate change, its main factors and the consequences it could have for our environment and our way of life.

Since 2010, the BNP Paribas Foundation has already been supporting the Subglacior project, which traces climate history using an innovative coring method to examine Antarctic ice sheets at the Laboratory of Glaciology and Environmental Geophysics.

This new Foundation programme, running for three years on a budget of €3 million, will support four additional research programmes.

Chosen from around 50 applications for funding, one of the four programmes that received funding is eFOCE.

– eFOCE: Use of subsea equipment to increase understanding and enable forecasting of the impact of ocean acidification on marine ecosystems
Main partners in the project: Laboratoire d’Océanographie de Villefranche (France), Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (USA), Station Biologique de Roscoff (France), Plymouth marine Laboratory (Royaume–Uni), Mediterranean Institude for Advanced Studies (IMEDEA)
