Mission Zero Plastic

In signing the Zero Single-Use Plastic manifesto initiated by IMS, BNP Paribas in Luxembourg has signalled its commitment to eliminating single-use plastics by 2020.

Faced with an environmental emergency, the staff at BNP Paribas Luxembourg is intent on promoting conservation through direct action, including in the workplace.

In 2019, our annual plastics consumption included 200,000 coffee stirrers, 90,000 plates and cutlery sets, 80,000 straws and 660,000 cups.

But in 2020, we plan to go from using 300,000 plastic bottles a year to... 0! In December 2019, the Bank handed out several hundred glass bottles that staff can refill at company water fountains

Removing disposable products from our lives will also save the energy that would otherwise be spent on manufacturing them and processing them after use.

By changing our daily habits, we can make a real impact on our environment.

 

Waste reduction

Paper waste

As part of the aim of reducing its environmental impact, the bank is cutting its paper consumption by recycling it into new newspapers, notebooks, etc. 

Organic waste

For the past ten years, the organic waste of the bank’s staff restaurants has been transformed into biogas. This biogas is then injected into the national grid for the benefit of the community as a whole

 

The bank is committed to and promotes alternative energies and initiatives in support of energy transition.

Reducing our footprint

Green buildings 

Opened in July 2016, the two new eKinox and oKsigen buildings in Kirchberg have generated a substantial 40% reduction in the bank’s direct carbon emissions, thanks to top-quality insulation and sustainable water, electricity and heating management. As a result, the Group’s Luxembourg headquarters obtained three prestigious environmental certifications.

Energy and water

  • 5.5% reduction in water consumption by optimising HVAC systems
  • use of 4,850 m³ of rainwater
