BME AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2014
BME’s business activities do not have a direct impact on
the environment. However, as the company is aware of
the potential environmental risks any business generates,
it manages its business in a sustainable manner and has
undertaken to reduce any indirect effects its activities may
have on the environment thereby helping defend, preserve
and improve the environment.
BME’s main lines of action in this area are as follows:
Compliance with prevailing national, regional
and local legislation, as well as with BME’s own
commitments to minimise the environmental
impact of its activities.
Fostering measures to reduce the use of the
resources consumed directly and indirectly by BME.
Encouraging the recycling of waste in order to
minimise the company’s environmental impact.
BME fosters compliance with the three “R” approach
to environmental protection:
reduce, reuse, recycle.
Advancement of environmentally-responsible
behaviour by BME employees through the imple-
mentation of best environmental practices.
Contribution to corporate social responsibility
in Spain through projects encouraging socially
responsible business practices.
Since its beginnings, BME has received no fines or
sanctions for failing to comply with environmental
