BME AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2014

BME

Paper

BME’s commitment to sustainable development is

also reflected in its selection of paper suppliers who

are required to meet the quality and sustainability

standards contained in ISO 140001:2004 and OHSAS

18001:1999.

In order to uphold this commitment, the company

has introduced a series of measures to control and

gradually reduce paper consumption, such as:

Encouraging the use of new technologies (internet,

intranet, pen drives) instead of paper.

In recent years

the company has made its annual report and its

CSR available in digital format and since 2013, BME’s

Bolsa magazine is now exclusively available digitally.

Encouraging the use of email and other data trans-

mission tools

over printed copies in the company’s

internal and external communications and raising

awareness among email recipients about the

responsible use of paper by adding the following

automatic message “Before you print, think about

the ENVIRONMENT”.

Re-using envelopes

when sending documents via the

internal courier service between different offices.

Introducing a full document management platform

which allows all documents received to be scanned,

classified and sent on to their recipients via email

without printing them. This platform, which was set

up in 2008, reduces paper consumption by 10%.
