Electricity consumption per m2 of office has been slightly increased compared to the same period of the previous two years. Below is a graph that compares electricity consumption for 2017, 2018 and 2019 month by month.
Efforts to reduce electricity consumption are especially appreciated since the start of the implementation of the ISO 14001 standard in 2017. Although the variation is not much, if it has been shown an increase of 2% compared to the last year in electricity consumption per m2 of office.
As a summary, in the following table we also present the annual numerical results of electricity consumption per employee, which here we can see how they have decreased.
For the rest of the consumption analyzed by the company, a summary table has also been prepared that compares the results obtained during 2019 with the two previous years.
The three consumptions analyzed, paper, fluorescent and toner, have been reduced with respect to consumption both from the previous year, 2018, and from 2017.
We pay special attention to the reduction of consumption and paper and toner, since among the objectives for this year of the company were to achieve lower consumption. The measures that have been carried out have been of great help to achieve these results.
Below, we show a table comparing paper consumption per employee since 2016.
In the following graph we appreciate the constant rise in recent years of paper consumption. The company has been working for several years to promote the reduction of the use of paper in its offices. After the measures implemented in 2019, and as seen in the graph, this year the company has managed to reduce the use of paper by its employees.
Accompanying the reduction in paper consumption, we also see the reduction in consumption of printing toner.
On the other hand, the company analyzes as indicators the amounts of waste that are generated and sent to recycle through an authorized company. The types of waste that are sent for recycling, as well as the amounts generated in 2019, 2018 and 2017, are presented in the following table:
As we can see in the table, the amounts of waste generated throughout 2019 have remained fairly stable since last year. Small variations that do not generate any kind of alarm.
Below, we show graphically the volumes of recycled waste in its comparison with previous years:
By 2020 the environmental goal is a 10% reduction in electricity consumption in the office. This consumption will be measured in Kw / hour per m2.
