The
indirect consumption
of energy resources mainly
occurs during business trips made by company employ-
ees. BME has made the following options available to its
employees to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions:
The use of video conferencing for meetings.
BME has
specially-outfitted meeting rooms at all its offices. In
2013, 1,318 videoconferences were held at the com-
pany’s Madrid and Barcelona offices (1,032 and 900 in
2011 and 2012, respectively).
However, business trips by plane and train are still nec-
essary for the company to carry out its business.
The use of public transport over private vehicles,
thereby avoiding greater pollution. BME provides a
shuttle service between the work centre at Las Rozas
(Madrid) and the nearest train station and between the
company’s two main offices in Madrid.
The shuttle operator meets the requirements of
UNE-EN ISO 14001:2004 and UNE-EN ISO 9001:2000
standards. These certificates guarantee, among other
aspects, that drivers operate the coaches in an envi-
ronmentally responsible manner and that the service
reduces fuel use by up to 10% compared with coaches
that are not driven with these best practices in mind.
