BNP Paribas is encouraging the dematerialization of documents, making saving in costs and raw materials. In 2005, the function Group Operational Efficiency decided to digitalize the press review, saving 800,000 sheets of paper per month and 9.6 million sheets per year. The press review is now available to all employees on the Group Intranet.

Reducing letters and faxes, BNP Paribas offers to its corporate customers a new digital service: electronic notices of its commercial transfers to suppliers. This service meets the strong expectations of corporate customers aiming to optimize their management of mail to suppliers. The lead time is decreased fourfold, and there is a 30 % reduction in delivery costs of final documents. The suppliers also benefit from these services in the form of flexibility and dematerialization.
