BME AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2014

BME

Water

While not directly linked to the services BME offers,

the company has adopted various measures aimed at

reducing the consumption of water by its employees

and raising employee awareness of responsible water

use in all offices and elsewhere.

Measures adopted by the company include:

Proper plumbing maintenance at its facilities to

detect leaks and avoid water wastage;

Drip water systems in landscaped areas wherever

possible;

Publication on the intranet of related articles and

recommendations;

Introduction of efficiency mechanisms for taps and

sanitary units;

In 2014 BME has registered no incidents linked to its

water collection systems, which connect to the munic-

ipal water supply network.

The company continues to work towards reducing

water consumption and controlling any incidents

which may arise, and, as can be seen below, has been

able to make progress in this area in the consuption

levels in the Madrid area, with the Bilbao and Valencia

areas following similar patterns.
