Consumables - Environment

With a view to reducing our environmental impact, we are working on two fronts: type of material and lower consumption.

We mainly purchase FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) certified paper in A3 and A4 sizes. These certifications guarantee that the paper comes from responsibly managed forests. In particular, for internal use of the A4 size, we only use recycled paper.

We mainly use refurbished toner cartridges.

In order to lower our consumption, we have moved from the paper distribution of internal reports to digital. Furthermore, we have stopped purchasing pre-set quantities of letterhead paper and now encourage using its electronic format. This solution allows us to avoid throwing away the excess, when the paper is updated.

We also collect and recycle old security devices and cards from our clients in our branches.
