In 2018, the Bank recorded a 48% increase in the volume of waste it generated. The increase was related mainly with the redesign of branches and destruction of archived documents.
Paper, metal, wood, plastic, glass and electronic waste produced in the course of the operating activity of the Bank and some of the companies is recycled or utilized by a specialized company with which the Bank has signed a contract. 82% of the waste is recycled.
Municipal waste from the Bank’s head office in Warsaw is collected by a specialized company. Roughly 75% of the municipal waste is recycled. The Bank’s head office has introduced waste segregation into four fractions (plastic, paper, glass and other). Containers to collect batteries and small electrical waste have been put in place. A campaign to collect large size electronic waste takes place once a year. Social rooms in branches are equipped with built-in trash segregation waste bins.
