A strong and global approach
Since 2008, BNP Paribas Cardif has engaged in an ambitious environmental protection program.
It implies global initiatives that focus on four topics related to the company and its functioning:
- A limitation of waste production and a better recycling,
- A decrease in paper consumption,
- A drop in energy consumption of buildings,
- A limitation of business trips.
A steering committee regularly meets to define or adjust the objectives, follows the impacts of the program and ensures that all countries actively take part in it.
Supporting local projects
The company fosters local environmental actions. In Italy for example, BNP Paribas Cardif implemented an energy expenditure saving program. This approach was awarded with the "Sette Green Awards 2013" from the "Sette Corriere Della Serra" magazine (specialized in economics), within the sustainable development category. The construction conducted allowed to reduce the electricity consumption as well as the CO² emission.
A highly energy sparing building
In 2010, the new headquarters offices have been built according to highly energy sparing standards. This building offers 10 000 square meters of green spaces and a natural lighting that allows to massively reduce the company energy consumption.
Convinced that every action towards the environment has a real impact, the company has also set up beehives on the roof of the headquarters. This action seeks to bring awareness among the staff about the importance of biodiversity.
