BME AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2014
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
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-
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
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%.
