Energy and Waste reduction Program

28/10/08

On September 29, 2008, 15 offices from Bureau Veritas shared Energy and Waste program achievements.
 
The results are quite encouraging for the first half of 2008:

 

- Key Performance Indicators have been monitored for all offices and show improvements for more than half of the pilot offices on their energy, water and paper consumption.

 - In depth “energy audits” have been carried out, with the support of the Group Quality, Health, Safety and Environment team and the technical assistance of our internal Health, Safety and Environment Business Lines experts at several offices: Toulouse, Paris Ardennes, Dardilly (Lyon), Paris Existing Head Office in France, and the Didsbury office in the United Kingdom.

 

 

Actions plans are actively monitored in order to meet our objectives to reduce consumptions (10% for energy and water, 15% for paper), such as:
- Development of solar water heating systems as alternative energy at the Consumer Products Services Shanghai laboratory,

- Water usage reduction through the use of automatic water stops for hand washer in French offices,

- Intensive communication on practices for scanning and recycling paper in the UK offices.
   
Based on the current experience, the 2009 objectives have been shared. They are the following:

- Previous objectives remain unchanged on consumptions of Energy, Water and paper.

- Increase of the number of offices involved in the program up to 35% of the Bureau Veritas staff (which requires a minimum of one office per large country).

- Moving ahead one step toward sustainability management, with the introduction of a carbon footprint calculation for pilots offices.
