What do we do concretely in our Bank?

With regard to our ecological footprint, since 2019 the electricity we consume comes from sources that are 100% renewable. Despite the age of some of our buildings and their classification as historical monuments, we have managed to reduce our annual energy consumption by 39% since 2008. As a result of the pandemic, we have made it possible for our employees to work from home, and increased the level of online and digital contact with our customers. The digitalisation of the Bank has enabled us have a positive impact on the environment, with a reduction of -8% in the paper consumption in our offices during 2021 (compared to 2020).

 

Finally, we are pleased to announce that the National Institute for Sustainable Development (INDR) has renewed our SRE (Socially Responsible Enterprise) label.
