Our commitment to the environment
BNP Paribas Real Estate, through the course of its business activities as a leading real estate consultancy, has an impact on the environment. We believe it is our responsibility to minimise these impacts and as such we are committed to help protect the environment and reduce our carbon footprint.
Our environmental policy demands we meet all relevant environmental legal requirements as a minimum and exceed these wherever possible. We are committed to monitoring, managing and continually improving our environmental performance through the retention of an Environmental Management System, currently certified to ISO 14001:2004, which includes the delivery of our environmental objectives through a programme of continual improvement.
Our Board is responsible for overseeing our environmental performance and integrating our environmental policy into business management processes..
Some of our more recent environmental achievements & initiatives include:
- Achieving the Carbon Trust Standard for carbon management
- Achieving a carbon neutral status in terms of greenhouse gas emissions from our own operations
- Addition of new energy-efficient and on-demand printers, also allowing for reduction in paper usage;
- The inclusion of sustainability principles in our procurement process.
A key differentiator for us is the strong governance influence of the BNP Paribas Group.
