Functioning of the CSR Committee
The CSR Committee is placed under the chairmanship of the bank’s CEO and composed of the following members: Communications Officer, HR representative, the President of Club BCP and 3 collaborators from different departments.
Members sit on the committee for 2 consecutive years, except for the CEO and the Communications Officer who are both permanent members of the Committee and the President of Club BCP who usually changes every year as he/she is elected for a yearly mandate, save if no new President is elected.
The 3 other collaborators are selected from volunteers, further to a call for candidates. Their selection is based on their letter of motivation and their mandate lasts 2 to 3 years.
Once the bank's annual CSR budget has been defined, applications for CSR funds that have been received by the bank are examined for a preselection by the committee members. They ensure that applications received are consistent with the bank’s CSR policy and areas of intervention. Their shortlist is then presented to the executive CSR committee for a final selection, under the arbitration of the CEO.
Selected NGOs are thereafter contacted for an official presentation of their respective cheques.
During the year, the CSR Committee undertakes to participate in the organisation of at least 2 activities with the NGOs funded by the bank.
