BME AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2014

BME

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

legislation.
