Find out about how to reduce your carbon footprint
With simple actions, you can make your way of consuming energy more environmentally friendly.
Avoid requesting unnecessary paper receipts
You could reduce emissions by up to 1 kg a year.
The paper used for printing receipts at ATMs and POS terminals can generate up to 1 kg of carbon dioxide emissions per person, per year.
Consider these ideas when you're offered a receipt:
- Avoid requesting copies when they are not necessary; you will generate less waste and help to save the energy and water needed to make paper.
- Try to print only the receipts you need, as the ink is highly polluting.
- Keep track of your expenses and income using your BBVA app.
By reducing the number of receipts, you help bring down the volume of paper waste. This small gesture leads to fewer emissions of toxic substances being released into the environment.
