Je me pose la question suivante : est-il vrai que BNP Paribas Fortis finance en 2021 l’industrie d’exploitation fossiles alors qu’elle a pris des résolutions fortes en matière de lutte contre le réchauffement climatique en général et le désinvestissement de l’industrie carbonée ?

BNP Paribas more than doubled its financing to fossil fuels between 2018 and 2020, with a 41% increase between 2019 and 2020 alone. Over the same period, it increased its financing to key fossil developers by more than six times. The French bank stopped supporting pure players in unconventional fossil sectors in 2017, but has since doubled down on its financing to the oil and gas supermajors. These are not covered by the bank’s policy despite being at the forefront of oil and gas expansion. BNP Paribas was the largest financier of BP, Shell and Eni, and the second largest of Total, between 2016 and 2020, with some huge deals made last year. Despite having adopted one of the strongest policies on shale oil and gas, BNP Paribas increased its financing to the fracking industry more than any other bank between 2019 and 2020. BNP Paribas’s net-zero pledge will ring hollow until the bank cuts its ties with the oil and gas expansionists.
