BME

4.3. QUALITY STANDARDS FOR

GOODS AND SERVICES.

In 2014, BME maintained the quality standards for

certain services or goods established in previous years.

For the

technological assets

important for BME’s activ-

ities, where IT equipment must be updated regularly

and always be at the forefront of technology, the

company uses suppliers whose products are guaran-

teed with the ENERGY STAR label.

ENERGY STAR 5.0-tagged computers feature an

energy savings mechanism that automatically discon-

nects the machine when not in use, helping to slash

energy consumption (by up to 40%, according to the

manufacturer) and ensure that computers perform

better and last longer.

Also, for

office supplies

such as paper the company

works exclusively with suppliers who respect the envi-

ronment. Manufacturing processes at BME’s paper

suppliers therefore meet the quality and sustaina-

bility standards contained in ISO 140001:2004 and

OHSAS 18001:1999.

Although it may appear less important, the coach

operator usedby the company holds certificates issued

by Madrid’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry veri-

fying that it complies with UNE-EN ISO 14001:2004

standards for environmental management systems

and with UNE-EN ISO 9001:2008 standards for quality

systems, which contain guidelines for best environ-

mental practices and wastemanagement, respectively.

It also holds the Company and Coach Safety Certificate,

boasting a good level of Road Safety and Transport of

Persons in accordance with the criteria contained in

the CSEAA-INSIA certification procedure.
