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 online systems convenient for customers and profitable for business, but they are also beneficial to the environment. At the end of 2017, Internet banking “FUIB online 2.0” substituted the work of 53 regular bank branches with the average personnel of 7 employees each. This is a significant economy of natural resources and energy that would be required for the organization and operation of the branches.
Every day FUIB employees make efforts to preserve the environment:
- apply principles of the “Green Office”: economize energy resources, save paper, optimally use the equipment and procedures for electronic document management, collect waste paper;
- participate in environmental initiatives.
In 2017, the bank continued to replace traditional illuminants with energy-saving ones and electricity was used economically. As a result of the application of new energy-saving technologies in office premises, electricity consumption was reduced by 126942 kWh, water consumption was reduced by 49 m3, compared to the previous year. For the year 2017, the bank transferred almost 47 tons of paper for recycling. In addition, FUIB handed over for recycling to other organizations all hazardous and non-hazardous waste of the bank for the year.
