When implementing innovative technologies into business processes and customer service, FUIB supports “green” standards and makes its contribution to the preservation of the environment.
Not only are self-service systems in the bank convenient for customers and profitable for business, but they are also beneficial to the environment. In addition to the possibility of remote service in Internet banking and self-service terminals, the bank launched in 2018 remote service in instant messengers, and also released a new mobile application. This is a significant economy of natural resources and energy that would be required for the operation organization of the branches. Thus, in 2018, more than 7.5 million transactions were successfully completed in Internet banking.
Every day FUIB employees make efforts to preserve the environment:
- apply principles of the “Green Office”: save energy resources, paper, optimally use the equipment and procedures for electronic document management, collect waste paper;
- participate in environmental initiatives.
In 2018, the bank continued to replace traditional illuminants with energy-saving LED-lights and electricity was used economically. In existing branches, when repairing the premises, the bank refuses from centralized heating and switches to heating with the use of energy-efficient heating appliances. Since in 2018, the bank opened new branches in various regions of Ukraine, electricity consumption was not reduced compared with the previous year, but in the future, the measures taken will reduce the consumption.
For the year 2018, the bank transferred 38 tons of paper for recycling. FUIB also handed over for utilization over 90 tons of hazardous and non-hazardous waste from the bank during the year, including more than 4 tons of plastic bank cards. In addition, to reduce CO2 emissions, the bank began replacing gasoline cars with modern diesel ones; in 2018, 7 cars were updated.
