BNP Paribas will put sustainability on full display in Singapore this week, as the title sponsor of the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore, brought to you by SC Global.
Visitors to the Singapore Stadium during the tournament will have the opportunity to experience the BNP Paribas Fan Village, where plastic bottles can be recycled into prizes.
Avid cyclists can race to power their mobile phones at the Pedal Power station and compete for points. There will also be the opportunity to have your photo taken “on centre court” in the specially designed photo booth.
The bank will host a Sustainability Evening on Thursday October 26, featuring the director of A Plastic Ocean, Craig Leeson. The spotlight on sustainability at the stadium will follow BNP Paribas’ flagship client event, the Sustainable Future Forum held at Singapore’s greenest hotel, the PARKROYAL on Pickering earlier that day.
The Sustainable Future Forum is held in conjunction with the BNP Paribas WTA Finals, the world’s premier sporting event for women, in recognition of the importance of gender equality to achieving sustainable development.
For more information or to secure access to the Fan Village and experience why We Are Tennis at BNP Paribas, please contact Geraldine Ding.
