Consumption and waste

We reduce and sort.

The fact that we are working within the services’ provision sector and that our activity does not require a lot of materials – in our intermediate and final services provision process – makes us environmentally not very aggressive. Still, our environmental policy tries to minimize the impact on the environment.

Resources’ consumption

Our activity almost does not require any materials in our intermediate and final services provision process. Even so, these materials’ reduction has been given priority and we have been using recycled materials.

Paper is the material that we use the most. Our premises also consume water:

  • to drink
  • to water plants
  • to wash vehicles
  • to use in climatization devices

We also take part in BCSD working groups groups (sustainable finance) on green and circular financing opportunities. Regarding this matter: 

  • we released the Fiduciary Duty and Responsible Investment journal
  • we hosted the Fiduciary duty and non-financial information: sustainable financial products workshop – aiming at assessing and debating the theme and contributing to its disclosure among the financial sector and companies in general.

Waste

We maintain our internal waste management practices and forward the waste to the most adequate destination. We promote waste separation and appreciation solutions instead of sending the waste to a waste dump.

In 2018, CTT’s global appreciation rate was of 87.6%, a result of the effort to improve the recyclable waste separation.

As regards circular economy, we have implemented inverse waste logistics, involving transport in return of the final customers’ waste. This had a positive impact in our customers’ satisfaction.
