Under the auspices of the Corporate Facilities Management Department,

the group implemented a general environmental management policy.

The building at 14, rue Bergère in Paris was restored with the aim of

obtaining High Environmental Quality (HEQ) certification in connection

with the French standard on service-sector buildings, issued by CSTB,

the scientific and technical advisory centre for the French building industry.

This would be a first in France in terms of restoration work. In November,

the compliance of the programme and design phases was rated as very

effective under seven criteria, as effective under four, and as basic under

three criteria, thus exceeding the minimum certification requirements.

A call for tenders was launched with six enterprises proposing automated

solutions for managing energy requirements. Two enterprises and two pilot

sites – in Levallois and Montigny – were selected to test these solutions.

In 2006, electricity consumption was analysed on a local basis at all

BNP Paribas sites outside Paris and recommendations were made on how

to reduce consumption.

The T8 fluorescent tubes used to light the branches’ signs were replaced

by T5 fluorescent tubes that give out the same amount of light but consume

30% less electricity. Long-life LED bulbs, which also consume less

electricity, are used in Bank’s ATM machines.
