Paper
BME’s commitment to sustainable development is also
reflected in its selection of paper suppliers. As described
in Chapter 4 of this report, manufacturing processes at
the company’s paper suppliers are required to meet the
quality and sustainability standards contained in ISO
140001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:1999.
In addition to these requirements for selecting paper
suppliers, BME has implemented various measures to di-
rectly encourage paper saving. These include:
Encouraging the use of new technologies – internet,
intranet, pen drives- instead of paper to disseminate
the company’s Annual Report and Annual CSR report,
changes in the publication schedule for Bolsa maga-
zine and the use the intranet as a vehicle for communi-
cation with employees.
Encouraging the use of email over printed copies in
the company’s internal and external communications
and in communications between employees and
other external recipients, in addition to raising aware-
ness among email recipients about the responsible use
of paper by adding the following automatic message
“Before you print, think about the ENVIRONMENT”.
Employees are also encouraged to reuse envelopes
when sending documents via the internal courier service
between different offices and a full document manage-
ment platform has been created that allows all docu-
ments received to be scanned, classified and sent on
to their recipients via email without printing them. This
platform, which started up in 2008, reduces paper con-
sumption by 10%.
