In our house
Rabobank’s environmental responsibility is focused on its internal environmental management, with an emphasis on energy, water and recycling. The bank has made significant inroads in these areas with the purchase of green energy and the use of energy saving lighting installed. In the majority of the network’s branch locations in New Zealand and Australia, the bank has installed multi-functional devices (MFD) that are able to print, copy, scan and send electronic faxes, vastly reducing the amount of paper usage.
The bank is committed to developing its Supply Chain Management System which aims to ensure organisations within the bank’s supply chain operate in a responsible manner. From a client perspective the bank encourages client action to develop sustainable business operations. Rabobank has been a long-time supporter of using recycled materials. More recently the bank has moved all of its external printing to environmentally friendly stock. In office fit-outs the use of recycled materials is also considered.
