Carbon Footprint Project

Bankinter controls the emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases deriving from its activity by calculating its overall carbon footprint, with a view to be able to take the necessary measures to mitigate its contribution to climate change.
Bankinter has been calculating its carbon footprint since 2007. With this global analysis of emissions (direct, indirect and induced), the Bank is preparing ahead of time for the initiatives of the European Commission and the Spanish government in their proposals that companies should report emission data beyond Scope 1 (direct emissions).
The environmental footprint is calculated and verified annually by an independent certifying agency in accordance with the UNE EN ISO 14064 carbon footprint standard.
The Bank has also calculated the carbon footprint associated with the use of channels of communication, with a view to promoting the use of the most eco-efficient channels.
