BNP Paribas Whistleblower Program

What is Whistleblowing?

BNP Paribas Group has stringent standards when it comes to comply with laws, regulations and the principles set out in the Group’s Code of Conduct. These high standards involve each individual.

You should report any suspected or observed breach of a law, a regulation or the Code of Conduct, examples being an act of corruption, fraud, harassment, a market abuse, or any other situation that jeopardizes the security of individuals or the Bank.

As part of this ongoing commitment, we have available a confidential, and if desired anonymous, reporting system for employees and other BNPP stakeholders to report any concerns or matters, or other unresolved concerns related to breaches or suspected breaches of BNPP’s Code of Conduct.
