We are working hard to reduce our carbon emissions by implementing measures to achieve a more efficient use of natural resources and running campaigns to raise awareness about environmental issues in our offices. We promote initiatives to lessen our impact on the environment, such as eliminating single-use plastic, recycling refuse and reducing paper usage.
In 2020, we have set ourselves the UMForest Challenge to reduce our paper usage. For every 10 kilos of paper we save from 1 December 2019 to 1 December 2020, Uría Menéndez will plant a tree in the Sierra de Gredos or the Montgrí Massif.
To promote sustainable transport, we have installed electric vehicle charge points in our Madrid offices and bike racks in Madrid, Barcelona and Lisbon.
